Easy chilli con carne
Customer recipe by Andrew Beckwith

Chop the onion and garlic, and add to the pan with the mince, fry until browned. (I do not add oil to the pan as I feel the beef mince gives off enough of its own juices.)

Drain off the kidney beans, wash and add to the pan. Add the frozen mixed peppers and chopped tomatoes. Add the chilli, depending on how hot you like it, 1, 2 or 3 tablespoons. Add the cumin.

Let the chilli simmer then add gravy powder to the mixture to thicken.

This can be frozen easily. For a vegetarian meal the beef mince can easily be substituted with quorn mince.
