Chilli con vegmince

(2016-11-14 14:45:43)

I loved chilli con carne and sometimes I tried use a spice mix from Tesco or Sainsbury's. Why not, it was always tasty, but.....Because I have two children and they are too small for chilli and over spice food, I must make my own version. And this was definitely the best one

You will need

1 frozen mince
2 medium onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 peppers (I used green and red), sliced
1 can kidney beans in chilli sauce
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 cup water
2 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp tomato pure
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp granulated onion
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp cocoa powder
salt to taste


In a large pan mix the onion, garlic and frozen mince. Add splash of water, cover and leave about 5 minutes. Then add the tomato pure, mix and season with smoked paprika, cumin, coriander, granulated onion and garlic, cocoa powder and about 2 tsp of salt. Add peppers, kidney beans with chilli sauce and chopped tomatoes with water, cover and leave to cook about 20 minutes. Season with salt, if necessary and serve with bread or grain.
