Vegetable and Beef Chilli

This as a family favourite in our house and so easy to make!

SW Chilli

Syns: 0

You will need:
1 pack of 5% fat minced beef
2 onions (or one large), cut into small chunks
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
2 carrots, diced
1 red pepper, cut into chunks
1 yellow pepper, cut into chunks
1 green pepper, cut into chunks
1 courgette, sliced
1 can of red kidney beans
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 beef oxo cube
1-2 tablespoons of chilli powder (to taste)
2 teaspoons mixed herbs
Frylight
A splash of water

Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 150.
Spray a large casserole pan with frylight and starting on the hob fry the onions, garlic and carrots for a few minutes, on a medium heat.
Next add the minced beef and break up. Fry for 5 minutes or so.
Add the peppers and courgettes to the pan and leave a couple of minutes.
Add the kidney beans, tomatoes, oxo cube, herbs and chilli powder, plus a splash of water. Don’t be tempted to add more water if the chilli doesn’t seem very ‘saucy’ at this point!
Place the pan in your pre-heated oven for an hour and a half.

Serve with a large helping of cooked pasta and top with 30g of cheddar (or any cheese you fancy) from your healthy extra A section.

(I used a bit of extra virgin olive oil instead of frylight as I find it easier to work with and tastier, this worked out at 1 syn per portion. I also added a splash of chilli sauce which I am unable to find the syn value for).
