There are thousands of recipes for chilli worldwide, this is my interpretation of it. It hasn't had any complaints yet!


I know there are alot of ingredients here but it really does make the difference.

2 Onions
2 Sticks of Celery
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Kg Beef Mince
2 Tins Plum Tomatoes
1 Tin of Chickpeas
1 Tin of Kidney Beans
1 tbsp Tomato puree
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Rice to Serve.


Cook the mince until lightly browned. In a food processor blend the onions, celery and garlic together, add this to the browned mine. Cook for five minutes. Add the chickpeas, kidney beans, tinned tomatoes and tomato puree and cook for another ten minutes.

In a pestle and mortar, grind all the spices together to gain a single spice and and this into the pot, stirring well. Once the liquid has reduced a little, place in a medium over (around 160C) and leave for about 40 minutes. (I find that giving it the extra time to cook really tenderises the meat)

Serve with rice, sour cream and guacamole.


I know there are chilli aficionado's around the world that would turn their nose up at this interpretation of chilli but that is the point, it is an interpretation. It doesn't pretend to be the last word in chilli, it is just one recipe that my family and I have come to love.
