I’m super proud of this one, I wish it had been handed down through the generations, alas I made it up. Your new go-to Chilli recipe, I promise.




  • 100g chorizo
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp hot chilli powder
  • 500 g beef mince
  • 350 ml beef stock
  • 400 g chopped tomatoes
  • 15 g dark chocolate (grated)
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • ½ tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp caster
  • salt + pepper
  • 400 g kidney beans



  1. Set pan with one teaspoon of oil over medium heat.
  2. Dice Chorizo into cubes and add to the pan, cook for  5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Dice the onion and add to the pan with the chorizo and cook for a further  5 minutes. Stir in finely chopped garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, before adding curry, cumin and chilli powder and cooking for 90 seconds.
  4. Add mince to the pan, and break up with the back of a spoon. Cook until the beef is in even size pieces, and there is no pink left.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients (except kidney beans), and bring to a rapid simmer. Simmer for  25 minutes stirring occasionally. Make sure you scrape any crispy bits off the bottom of the pan as you go.
  6. Add drained kidney beans, turn down the heat slightly, and cook for a further  10 minutes
  7. Serve with rice, a dollop of sour cream and grated cheddar.
