Ingredients Ingredients

For The Chilli Con Carne:
  • 500g Minced beef
  • 2 Medium onions
  • ⅔ Garlic cloves
  • 1 Stick celery
  • 1 Carrot
  • 2 Red peppers
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 2 tsp Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 400g Kidney beans (tinned)
  • 2 x 400g Chopped tomatoes (tinned)
  • Olive oil
  • Small bunch coriander
  • Salt & pepper
For The Guacamole:
  • 2 Avocados (ripe)
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Medium ripe tomato (optional)
  • Salt & pepper
For The Rest:
  • Pack of frozen French fries
  • Handful grated cheddar
  • Dollop of sour cream
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions Instructions

  1. Start with the chilli. Finely chop all the fresh veg (onion, garlic, celery, carrot, peppers) and gently fry in olive oil for 8-10 mins or until nice and soft in a large casserole dish.
  2. Throw in the Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, cumin and cinnamon.
  3. Add the tomatoes, kidney beans and finely chopped coriander stalks.
  4. Fry the minced beef in another frying pan to brown (this will add flavour to the meat) then add to the other ingredients.
  5. Add salt & pepper.
  6. Put a lid on it, leaving a small gap and cook on a low heat for about an hour (longer if you have time).
  7. About 30mins before you're ready to serve, get your fries in the oven sprinkled with a little salt.
  8. Whilst they're cooking, make your guacamole.
  9. Remove the flesh from the avocados and mash them with the lime juice until at your preferred consistency (we prefer ours slightly chunky).
  10. Chop up the coriander and tomatoes and stir through avocado. Season to taste.
  11. Taste your chilli and add more seasoning if necessary. If too liquidy, remove the lid and cook uncovered for a while.
  12. Spoon the chilli over the chips, sprinkle with cheese and return to oven to melt.
  13. Once ready, spoon on the sour cream and guacamole and sprinkle with chopped coriander leaves.
