What's the best secret ingredient for chilli?

You will find chilli recipes with all sorts of secret ingredients, from chocolate to fish sauce (eek!), but we think a dollop of our signature smoky chipotle paste is the best secret ingredient for chilli. Made with a blend of chipotle and rare Mexican chillies which add a smoky depth of flavour, the paste also brings a sweetness from caramelised onion. A dollop of Chipotle Paste just seems to meld all the delicious flavours together.

How do you make the best chilli ever?

With flavour, flavour and more flavour! When it comes to vegan chilli, the key is to roast the veggies in order to caramelise the natural sugars. For chilli con carne with mince, be sure to simmer everything together to really bring the flavours through — the longer the better we think! That said, it is possible to make a quick chilli. Take our easy chilli con carne recipe, for example, which gives you delicious results with only a quick simmer.

Is chilli healthy?

Our chilli recipes offer a good amount of protein and nutrients, meaning it can certainly be part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. You will find we have developed options for different dietary preferences, including our very popular and flavourful vegan chilli. You might want to use beef with 5% fat to reduce the calories, or serve chilli in a bowl with a crisp green salad instead of basmati rice.
