My favourite chilli step by step
- Heat the oil in a large pan (if you have it, use a pan that can be transferred directly to the oven with a lid).
- Add all your chopped veg and cook over a low to medium heat for about 15 minutes until they are soft and starting to caramelise a little. You will need to stir them every few minutes to make sure they don't catch the bottom..
- Now add the spices and sauces and coat the veg. Allow to cook for 2 minutes, stirring..
- Add the mince and stir into the veg and spices. Turn up the heat a little so tat it cooks through. You will need to stir occassionally until it is just cooked through (5 minutes or so)..
- Add the pulses and stir through to mix well. Add the passata and stir again. Allow to cook for a few minutes with lid on..
- Fill the passata carton with water. Add half of it to the pan and stir. If its looking very thin, dont add any more water yet. If the liquid isnt covering the mix, add some more water until it does. You can always add more liquid later when you check it..
- Give it a really good stir and allow to simmer on medium for 5 minutes. If you're cooking the chilli on the hob, turn the heat down to low and leave the lid on for the first 45 minutes of cooking. Remove for the last 15 minutes and season well. If it's looking to thick, add a little more water at this point..
- If you are oven-cooking the chilli, leave the lid on and transfer to a preheated oven (180˚ c). Cook for 45 minutes and then remove the lid for the final 15 minutes of cooking. Season well and stir before returing to the oven. Add more water if it needs it. If you prefer a thicker sauce you can turn the oven down to 160˚ c and leave for a little longer. You can experiment with how long you cook your chilli for to get it just how you like it!.
- Warm a shallow, wide bowl and place 2 good handfuls of tortilla crisps in the bottom. Place 2-3 large ladles of chilli on top of the crisps and serve with sour cream and grated mozzarella. Obviously you can also serve this with rice as the image shows or with a nice, crisp green salad. If you're watching your carb intake, I like to serve it with some large iceberg lettuce leaves - they are amazing filled with chilli and grated cheese and wrapped like a burito!.
