Brrrr – Chilli

One of my favourite things in the cold weather is a big pot of chilli. It’s easy to make, great to eat, and the leftovers heat up well the following day! My chilli is of course, not remotely authentic, but doesn’t lack in taste. What else can I say about it? Nothing except everyone should have one good chilli recipe!

Bean Chilli

Finely chop and fry 1 onion. Add in 1 crushed clove of garlic, and fry on a gentle heat until the onion is soft, but not coloured.

Slice a good handful of mushrooms and throw them in the pot.

After about 5 minutes chuck  in either finely chopped chillis or chilli powder to taste, and  2 squares of 85% chocolate.

Once the chocolate has melted, add in a tin of chopped tomatoes, and good squeeze of tomato paste, and two tins of beans – I tend to use Adzuki beans and Butter beans, but use what you like.

stir it all well, and bring to the boil then simmer gently while you cook the rice – adding more water if it gets too dry.
