CHOCOLATE CHILI CON CARNE EXPRESS





i-PAD VERSION
350g of Aberdeen minced steak filet – 1 chopped tomatoes can – 1 red kidney beans can – 1 tbsp of double concentrated tomato puree – 1 tbsp of cumin seed – 1 tbsp of paprika – 3 squares of dark chocolate (80% for me) - 2 tbsp of brown caster sugar – 150g of onion (frozen for me) – 1 garlic clove (crushed) – 50g of shallots – 150g of rice - chilli to taste (1 for me).

In a large saucepan, fry the shallot, onion and garlic in a little bit of olive oil.
Add the meat and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the beans, tomatoes, tomato puree, cumin, chocolate, paprika, sugar and chilli.
Combine well, cover and cook for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile boil water for the rice. Cook the rice.
Serve the chilli with the rice.

    1. Yes Laura, it sounds strange but I never knew what to do with very strong chocolate (80 or 99 %). I found that in a very small quantity, it went very well with white fish and was incredible in beef stew...Try it, I am sure you will adopt it...Sixtine
