Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 Red Pepper chopped
  • 400 g Beef Mince (Ground Beef)
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Coriander
  • 2 tsp Chilli Powder adjust for taste according to how spicy you like it
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 200 ml Beef Stock
  • 1 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 400g tin Kidney Beans drained
  • Rice, Tortilla Chips, thinly sliced Radishes, Avocado, Grated Cheese, Limes to serve

Instructions

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large soup pot over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Tip in the garlic and pepper and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • By now everything should be nice and soft so add in the beef mince and the spices and cook until the mince is browned, about 10 minutes. 
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and beef stock. Bring the chilli to a simmer then leave it for at least 20 minutes but up to an hour and a half depending on how much time you have. The longer it simmers the more the flavours will develop! 
  • 10 minutes before the end of cooking add the kidney beans. Serve the chilli with rice and loads of toppings!
