I make a lot of chili and curry, as it’s easy to make, easy to freeze, and very quick to reheat and serve with rice. Any busy person’s friend. This is my basic chili recipe, sometimes I make the sauce myself, sometimes I add other stuff, just whatever takes your fancy really. You can make this in about 20 minutes, and all the ingredients are store-cupboard basics.
a pack of beef mince
1 onion, diced
1 jar of tomato & chili sauce OR 1 jar/tin plain sauce and a tbsp chili powder
1 tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Start to fry the beef in a little oil in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan. As it starts to brown, add the onion. Once the meat is fully brown and the onion softened, add the sauce and beans. Simmer until it is hot and cooked through. Serve with rice and pat yourself on the back for being able to whip up such a good meal in less than half an hour!
