Chilli-Con-Carne in a rush

A great quick Chilli recipe – if you have time, use the Chilli Deluxe recipe!


  • 1 tin kidney beans, drained
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes. If you can throw in some whole tomatoes that have ben roughly chopped it will improve the texture.
  • 500g lean minced beef
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • ½-1 tsp hot chilli powder or cayenne pepper
  • 1 rounded tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 300ml/1 pint beef or chicken stock
  • salt and black pepper to season
  • roughly chopped fresh coriander, to garnish
  • soured cream or crème fraîche, to serve
  • Tortillas chips


This doesn’t really need instructions – just chuck in the onion & garlic, brown the mince and bung everything else in, and spice to taste. Job done 🙂
