Chilli Con Carne

Use hot curry powder instead of mild or add a fresh chilli if you are looking for something a little hotter.



    1. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet pan over a medium-high heat and fry the onions and green peppers until they are soft and lightly golden.
    2. Stir in the garlic, chilli powder, cumin, ground coriander, origanum and bay leaves and cook for an additional minute.
    3. Add the minced beef and evenly brown the meat.
    4. Pour in the beef stock, kidney beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and fresh chilli and bring to the boil.
    5. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and gently simmer uncovered on a low heat for 30 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
    6. Sprinkle fresh coriander leaves and cheddar cheese over the top and serve whilst hot.
