By making a big pot of Chilli Con Carne yourself you can then freeze individual portions which you can use at a later date when you have less time. It's like having you're own home cooked ready meals and you'll know exactly whats in them!
1 lb or 450g Lean Beef Mince
2 Tins of Chopped Tomatoes
2 Tins of Red Kidney Beans
3 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
3 Teaspoons Ground Coriander
1 Garlic clove or cheat squeezy tube garlic
1 Teaspoon of Chilli powder or Flakes
(you can also use cayenne chilli if you like a smokey flavour or cheat squeezy tube chilli)
Bunch of fresh coriander
(Coriander can be frozen and used straight from the freezer chopped and thrown straight into the pot)
Rice to serve
For white rice put it on as soon all the ingredients are in the pot/pan.
1.Chop the onion.
Take the biggest pot/pan you have, heat a teaspoon of oil in it and heat the onion till it sweats and softens.
2. Add the lean beef mince to the onion and heat/stir till its browned.
3.Add the spices to the meat now for maximum flavour.
Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander & fresh garlic (or cheat garlic).
Add a little chilli now as you can always add more later if it's still not hot enough after the chilli has started to develop. Mix the spices in well by stirring them in over the heat for 1-2mins
4.Add 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and two tins of kidney beans.
You can also use other beans for variation and texture. Or if you are making a vegetarian Chilli try to use at least 3 different types of beans.
Black beans, pinto, flagelot, canillini
