Ingredients

  • 500 g Beef Mince
  • 2 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 380 g Kidney Beans 280g when drained
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 500 g Tin Plum Tomatoes Can also use passata
  • Salt season to your taste buds
  • Pinch Sugar
  • 15 g Dark Chocolate 70% or 85% or 90%
  • 1 Cup Brown Basmati Rice or use your favourite rice
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Parsley chopped

Equipment

  • 1 Frying Pan
  • 1 Sauce Pan
  • 1 Tablespoon
  • 1 Teaspoon 1/2 teaspoon too if you have one if not use your teaspoon

Instructions

  • Start cooking your rice. I usually cook 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water
  • Add 500g of beef mince to your pan and mash it up with your spoon to break it up then leave it to cook until all your meat is brown
  • When your mince is cooked add 2 1/2 teaspoons of smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes and stir all the flavour in so all your meat is covered
  • Add 230g drained kidney beans and cook for 2-3 minutes or until your beans start to blister. Check my video below to see what they should look like
  • Add 1 tablespoon of tomato pure, stir it in well and leave everything to simmer for 1 minute
  • Add 500g tinned plum tomatoes and season with salt and leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Now take a look at your chilli. If your sauce is looking a little dry add some water, stir it all in, add a pinch of sugar and stir it well again
  • Add 15g dark chocolate, stir it in well and then leave everything to simmer until your rice is ready

To Serve

  • Add you your rice to our plate and spread it out flat so you have a nice even bed for your chilli to lay on. Put your chilli in the middle of your rice, add some Greek yogurt on top of your chill and then a sprinkling of parsley and enjoy

Notes

Don't add any oil to your pan before you cook your mince meat. The oil from your meat will come out and cook your meat for you. When you meat has turned brown drain out any excess oil to make your meal as healthy as possible and continue cooking.
