Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

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

2 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

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

Once hot, add the pepper strips and chopped onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until beginning to soften

3 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

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, then remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

4 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

Dissolve the Kallo beef stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 250ml [400ml] boiled water

Drain and rinse the kidney beans

5 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

Once the onion and pepper have softened, increase the heat to medium-high and add the beef mince with the ground cuminsmoked paprikadried oregano and dried chilli flakes (cooking for kids? Skip the chilli!)

Cook for 3-4 min or until the beef mince is browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

6 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

Once the beef is browned, add the stock with the drained kidney beans and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 5-6 min further or until the sauce is thickened to a bolognese-like consistency – this is your chilli con carne

7 Project Heinz Chilli Con Carne V.1

Grate the cheddar cheese

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Fluff the rice with a fork

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