Number of Servings: 4


    2 onions, chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    500g lean minced beef
    1 tsp cayenne powder
    1 tsp chili powder
    2 tsp oregano
    300 ml stock
    400g canned chopped tomatoes
    225g canned kidney beans
    2 tbsp tomato puree
    few drops Worcestershire sauce
    salt and pepper to taste
    boiled rice to serve


Dry fry onions and garlic in non-stick pan, then stir in minced beef and fry until brown. Stir in cayenne pepper, chili powder and oregano and cook for 1 min.

Stir in stock, tomatoes, rinsed kidney beans, tomato puree and Worcestershire sauce, bring to boil and simmer 10 mins.

Season to taste. Partly cover pan and simmer 20-60 mins, adding extra stock if necessary. I find 20 mins is plenty but it doesn't spoil if you leave it longer.

If you like a really hot chilli (and I mean hot!) then double the quantities of spices.

Serve with boiled rice. Serves 4.
