1. Heat a large saucepan and add the minced beef, a handful at a time, cooking it until browned. Add the onion and garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

2. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, spices, red pepper, mushrooms, kidney beans and stock. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer gently for between 15-20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to pack instructions.

4. Season the chilli with pepper and serve with boiled rice.

1. Instead of serving with rice, serve with baked potatoes, topped with a spoonful of low-fat plain yogurt and some chopped cucumber and tomatoes. 2. Turkey mince makes an excellent chilli - and it's lower in fat too. If you are a vegetarian, substitute the minced beef with vegetarian mince.
