Chilli Con Carne 

When it’s freezing outside there is nothing better than a big bowl of steaming hot chilli. My recipe is packed with veg and I like to serve it with or without rice. You can use either turkey or beef mince, tonight I went for beef and serve it with my homemade tortilla chips. 💃🏽

This recipe is so easy, shove everything in a pan and leave to simmer. You can make it in a big batch and pop it in the freezer for a quick tasty lunch midweek. 


400g ground beef minced

2 red chillies

2 garlic cloves

1 orange pepper

1/2 courgette

2 celery sticks 

2 teaspoons cumin

1 teaspoon hot chilli powder

1 teaspoon smoked paprika 

Pinch salt and pepper

1 beef stock cube

150ml water

1/2 tin tinned tomatoes 


Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil to your pan, add your chopped chilli and garlic, allow to soften. Cube the remainder of your veg and add it to the pan, mix it well. Break your mince into the pan and seperate any remaining chunks with your wooden spoon. Allow the mince to brown and add your cumin, paprika, chilli powder and salt and pepper. 

Throw in a stock cube and add your water. Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Stirring occasionally. 

After 15 minutes add your tinned tomatoes and stir well. Add more seasoning to suit your taste if you want. Leave to simmer for a further 10-15 minutes until thickened up

Serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and parsley.
