This is a great chilli, it is low fat, healthy, easy and when you make it from scratch you know what is going in there.
It looks like there is a lot of ingredients but most are in your cupboard anyway.
I found it really easy to make as you throw everything in a pan and let it cook, I have even done this in the slow cooker. A bonus is that it tastes good and the family can enjoy too. If I have left overs I freeze the remaining of the chilli for lunch or dinner at a later date.
- Low calorie cooking spray
- 500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
- 1 1/2 large onions, finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2-1 tsp dried chilli flakes
- 1 heaped tsp ground coriander
- 1 heaped tsp paprika
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 2 x 400g mixed beans or pulses in water
- 3 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 beef stock cube
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Spray a deep non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the mince and fry for 8-10 minutes or until browned, stirring often. Drain off any fat in the pan, transfer the beef to a bowl and keep warm.
- Spray the pan with a little more low calorie cooking spray, add the onions and fry for 5 minutes, adding a little water if they start to stick.
- Add 300ml of water and all the remaining ingredients apart from the coriander and seasoning. Stir well and bring to a simmer.
- Return the mince to the pan and gently boil for 20 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the coriander and season to taste.
- Serve with your favourite veg, rice and a swirl of fat free natural yogurt if you want to cool things down.
