Directions

This chilli recipe is a family favourite and can be made in big batches and frozen in portions for reheating. I have also snuck in a few extra vegetables that are typical in Mexican cuisines such as beans and sweet corn to up your veggie intake. A really easy way to get extra fibre and nutrients without adulterating a favourite recipe. Tinned tomatoes and tomato pasta also count towards your 5 a day of fruit and veg. So we are up to seven vegetables! Top with guacamole and fresh salsa and that's even more goodness per bowl. The spices and cocoa powder in the recipe give it really rich, deep layers of flavour which taste even better the next day. - Rozanne Stevens

  2. Add the garlic and peppers and cook for a further 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the mince and break up with a wooden spoon and stir until there is no more pink visible.
  4. Sprinkle over all the spices and mix well to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour in the tomato purée and the tomato paste and mix well. Then add the water and mix again.
