20091107 Quick Chilli

(SOURCE: Nigella Express by Nigella Lawson)

This dish goes really well with a chilled bottle of Corona!

150g chorizo sausage, halved lenthways and cut into 5mm half moons
500g minced beef
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cardamon pods, bruised
500g tomato and chunky vegetable sauce for pasta
390g mixed spicy beans
60ml sweet chilli sauce
1/4 tsp chilli flakes (more if your canned beans are not spicy)

1. Put the sliced chorizo into a hot, heavy based pan and cook over a medium heat until the sausage crisps a little and gives up its orange-red oil.
2. Add the mince and cook for about 5 minutes, breaking it up with a wooden fork to help it brown.
3. Stir in the spices and then add the pasta sauce, spicy beans and chilli sauce. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

  1. Love a good chilli. And especially topping it off with a nice ice cold beer!
