Day 14 - Chili

I have about fifteen recipes for chili on here (or something ridiculous) but this is specific to what's in the cupboards today as Chris is cooking it while I'm at work.


Extra Easy, all food free

Extra lean beef mince (pack in fridge)
1 large onion
1 stick celery
4 cloves of garlic
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Beef OXO cube
Courgettes (in fridge, left hand drawer)
1 red pepper and the huge red and green one in the back of the fridge
1 carton chopped tomatoes
1 carton black beans
1 can of kidney beans (if there are none, use pinto)
Squirt of tomato puree
teaspoon chile ancho
half teaspoon chile chipotle
teaspoon cumin
teaspoon mexican oregano (in tin from Cool Chile)
Teeny shake of smoked paprika (in screw-top jar from my mom's)

Brown the beef thoroughly using some low-fat cooking spray, adding a shake of cinnamon and the OXO cube. When it's thoroughly browned add the onion, celery and garlic and cook til golden and softened. Then add the chopped peppers and courgettes, cover and allow to sweat down. Finally add the tomatoes, tomato puree, spices and oregano, turn to simmer and allow to bubble for about half an hour before adding the drained beans, turning right down, covering and leaving to think about its actions.

Hope that's okay.
