Chilli con carne: Submitted by: admin | Date Added: 11 Jan 2011 Ingredients:

1 onion, thinly sliced
1 small red pepper, seeded and finely diced
1-2 fresh red chillies (depending on taste), seeded and finely chopped
1 spoon light olive oil
500 g (1 lb 2 oz) lean minced beef, broken up with a fork
1 teaspoon EACH ground cumin and ground coriander
1/2-1 teaspoon hot chilli powder, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 spoon tomato puree
About 350 ml (12 fl oz) hot beef stock
400 g (14 oz) can chopped tomatoes
400 g (14 oz) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Cooking Instructions:

Place the onion, red pepper and chillies in the ActiFry pan, then drizzle the oil evenly over the top. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the minced beef to the ActiFry, breaking up the beef with a fork. Cook for 5 minutes or until the meat is coloured/sealed all over.

Mix the ground spices and seasoning with the tomato puree, then stir this mixture into 200 ml (7 fl oz) of the beef stock. Add the stock mixture and canned tomatoes to the ActiFry. Cook for 25 minutes. Stop the ActiFry once or twice during cooking and stir the mixture using a wooden spoon or spatula.

Add the canned beans and the remaining 150 ml (1/4 pint) hot beef stock and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, stirring once during cooking and adding a little extra hot stock, if desired. Serve with boiled rice and sprinkle with a little grated hard cheese, if desired.
