Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips

2 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped pepper and onion and cook for 8-10 min or until softened

3 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

Dissolve the beef stock cube[s] in 250ml [400ml] boiled water 

Drain and rinse the kidney beans

4 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Once the onion and pepper have softened, increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground cumin, smoked paprika, dried oregano and beef mince

Cook for 4-5 min or until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

 

5 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving 

6 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Once browned, add the chopped garlic and tomato paste to the mince and cook for a further 30 sec

Add the beef stock, drained kidney beans and chipotle paste (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!)

Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and bring to the boil over a high heat 

Cook for 7-8 min further or until thickened – this is your classic beef chilli con carne

7 Classic Beef Chilli Con Carne

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork

Tip: for extra indulgence, add a knob of butter to the rice!
