A big ole bowl...

...of steamin' hot chilli...please...

Thats the order as I got it down the telephone wire two evenings ago.  A very tired and fluey man arrived home, with an inability to say the letter 'M' and a desperate need for some TLC.  So I set about making him some chilli, with enough pep to clear his head and fill his belly!

Here is my own recipe for Chilli con carne, enjoy!

You'll need
400gms mince beef
100gms mince pork (optional)
2 chilli peppers (chopped finely)
1 onion, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tbs cumin
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2/3 tbsp tomato puree
1 tin of baked beans
1 tin of chilli beans
1 tin of sweetcorn
3-4 drops of worcestor sauce
1 tbsp of flour (dissolved in about 50mls water)

Fry the onion, celery, peppers and garlic in oil for about two minutes, stir in the cumin and then add the mince.  Brown through.  Add the tomato puree and tomatoes.  Stir. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir over a low heat until thick. Serve with rice, guacamole and corn chips or celery sticks!
