You might have had chilli con carne plenty of times before, but have you tried a good chilli sin (without) carne? It's cheap, healthy and really easy to whip up using store cubboard ingredients!
Chilli Sin Carne
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
400g tin white beans (I used broad/fava beans)
400g tin kidney beans (or black beans)
1 tbsp tomato purée
1/2 green chilli, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp (smoked) paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2-1 tbsp cajun seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla chips or good bread to serve, optionally top with a bit of cheese, or serve with guacamole!
- Start by heating the oil in a medium-sized casserole, add the onion and garlic and soften for about 5 minutes before adding the fresh chilli.
- Now, add the remaining ingredients and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with whatever you want, or just the way it is. Perfect for a chilly Autumn day *smiles*
Also, last night I was so lucky to go to my friend Rowan Ross' second album launch, this time for his album "Fireflight" - check it out!
It was another friend who did the support act for it, and his performance was magic as well. I have to go to more local gigs in the near future, it's too good *smiles*
Today I am off and having a few friends over for dinner in the evening. I hope you have had a leisurely weekend and a great start to a new one!
