    Quick Chilli Con Carne

    1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 medium sized onion, peeled and chopped
    1 medium sized capscium, cored, seeded and chopped
    500g lean mince
    2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
    1 can tomato puree
    1/4 tsp ground cumin
    1/4 cayenne pepper
    2 tsp chilli powder
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp salt
    2 cans kidney beans, drained

    ~ Heat the oil in a heavy 3L saucepan over moderate heat for about 1 minute. Add onion, capsicum, mince and garlic. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 7 - 8 minutes or until the onion is soft and the mince has browned.
    ~ Add the tomato puree, cumin, caynee pepper, chilli powder, oregano and salt. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 2 - 3 tbsp of water if the mixture becomes too thick.
    ~ Stir in the beans, cover and simmer for 5 more minutes, or until the beans are heated through. Serve with a green salad.


    ~ Leftovers can be refrigerated for 3 days or frozen.
    ~ Try serving the chilli in bowls or taco shells and serve with sour cream, chopped onions and diced cucumber.
