Chilli Con Carne

This is a recipe that has been a family favourite long before Slimming World and I was delighted to find that the whole thing was virtually free on Extra Easy.

Serves 2 or 3

Extra Easy - 0.5 syns per portion

250g Extra Lean Beef Mince
1 Red Onion, sliced
1 Red Repper, sliced
1 Garlic clove, finely chopped
1 Red Chilli, finely chopped
1 tin of Red Kidney beans in chilli sauce
1 tin of chopped Tomatoes
1 tsp Malt Vinegar
1/2 tsp granulated Sweetener
2 heaped tsp Bisto original gravy granules (0.5 syns per tsp)
1/2 tsp hot Chilli powder (or to taste)
Salt & Black Pepper

1. Spray a frying pan with frylight and fry the mince until brown. Transfer to a large saucepan.
2. Respray the frying pan with frylight and fry the onion and pepper until soft. Add the chopped chilli and garlic and fry for 1 minute. Transfer to the saucepan.
3. Add the remaining ingredients and leave to simmer, stirring occassionally.
4. Simmer for 2 hours if you have the time, but an hour should do if you can't wait. Serve with boiled rice or a jacket potato.
N.B. Use your HEXa and cover with grated cheddar cheese for a bit of indulgence!
