Chilli con carne is one of my favourite meals and like most of the meals I cook, it can be made a whole lot cheaper. Pork mince is a cheaper alternative to lamb or beef. Serve with rice or a jacket potato.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1/2 red pepper, diced
- 250g minced pork
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 250g passata
- 200g red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- Soured cream, to serve
Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion, garlic and red pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Add the mince and brown for 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes (uncovered). Cook the rice.
Season the chilli con carne and serve with the rice and a dollop of soured cream.
