This is my chilli recipe which has always gone down well with whoever I have cooked it for. I don’t tend to make it too spicy as I get complained at by my son, plus I am a bit of a wuss when it comes to spicy food too!
I have calculated the cost of the chilli for 4 people is around £3.00 depending on where you buy your ingredients and the quality of the same.
1 onion, diced
1 can kidney beans
1 beef stock cube
1 can chopped tomatoes
1/2 small can tomato puree
1 green pepper
1/2 teaspoon hot chilli powder
Handful of chorizo, diced (optional – I don’t buy this especially for chilli, just put it in when I have some going spare!)
1. Fry the mince with the onions and stock cube until the mince is browned and the onions have started to soften.
2. Add the green peppers, chilli powder (to your own taste), and chorizo (if using) and fry for another couple of minutes.
3. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and kidney beans and stir well.
4. Simmer for around 20 minutes until cooked through and thickened.
