This is a really simple meal that anyone who can make chilli can make! My family love it and I always find it is a nice and different way to have chilli instead of with rice.
I have used a packet sauce in this recipe, however, if you are feeling adventurous and have the time, why not make your own cheese sauce.
I have calculated the cost of this dish, for 4 people, would cost around £4.00 depending on where you purchased your ingredients and the quality of the same.
Wraps (a pack of 8 works well for between 3 and 4 people depending on appetites)
Handful of Grated cheese
1. Place a small amount of chilli in a wrap.
2. Fold the wrap as you usually would.
3. Place into an oven proof dish. Repeat with each wrap until you have filled them all and the dish.
4. Make your cheese sauce either from a packet mix or from scratch.
5. Pour the sauce over the wraps.
6. Top with grated cheese.
7. Bake in a pre-heated oven, 200C for between 30 and 40 minutes until hot throughout.
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.
I have been meal planning for quite some time now as I hate not knowing what to cook on a night and if I didn’t meal plan we would probably end up with ‘freezer food’ every night! Meal planning helps me keep to a budget too. I write a list of recipes each week that I am going to cook, make my shopping list and then order it online as I am more likely to stick to it that way! Hopefully I can provide some inspiration and ideas for others by sharing my weekly meal plans. I will post up recipes as soon as I have cooked them (unless they are already on the blog in which case I will link to them). Enjoy!
