Baked Bean Chilli - frugal food for all the family

Its been a pretty bad weekend in our household , so I have turned to trusty beef mince for this weekends recipe and the store cupboard. I normally have some mince stashed in the freezer for an economical supper dish which I am sure would be popular with the whole family in your household. Its appeal is that it features the humble baked bean, for the vegeterians just substitute the mince for more vegetables such as courgettes and celery.
Serve accompanied with the usual trimmings, rice, tacos, tortillas, salad or a jacket spud or even chips, sour cream and guacoamole are also options.

  • Minced beef
  • Onion - chopped finely
  • Red pepper - deseeded and sliced
  • Can of tomatoes - chopped
  • Tomato puree
  • pinch of sugar
  • Beef stock
  • Chilli spice mix - I use Fox's Herbs and Spices
  • Can of baked beans
  • Clove of garlic - peeled and crushed
  • Splash of worcestershire sauce
  • Soften the onion and garlic in a little oil in a large pan
  • Soften the red pepper in the same manner
  • Now add the mince to the pan and cook until coloured
  • Add the chilli spice mix to taste
  • Add the tomato puree, pinch of sugar and worcestershire sauce
  • Now add the can of tomatoes and the beef stock, careful not to add too much liquid
  • Simmer until the sauce starts to reduce and the meat is cooked
  • Add the baked beans and continue to simmer to thicken the sauce further
  • Serve accompanied by rice
