Scotch Bonnet Chilli
Please bear in mind this is for serious aficionados only.
500 gr Minced/Ground Beef
10 to 15 Fresh Chillies
6 Tablespoons of Hot Chilli powder
2 Cans of Premium chopped Tomatoes
1 Can Red Kidney Beans
4 Tablespoons Tomato Ketchup (adds sugar)
2 Good sized Onions 1 chopped, 1 Finely sliced
6 Cloves of Garlic roughly chopped and crushed
1 teaspoon Cumin powder
1 Pint Water
Salt and Pepper to taste
Grated Cheddar/Parmesan Cheese
Method:In a large pan, warm enough oil to cover the base. Add Chilli powder and stir for 2 minutes, add onions and finely chopped chillies, stir for 4 minutes until soft and onions begin to colour, add garlic, Cumin and Beef. Continue to cook on a low heat for 10 minutes. Add the Tomatoes and drained Kidney Beans, gently simmer for 60 minutes adding water to desired thickness. Add a knob of butter and season to taste. Simple but very effective, if you like it HOT!
Sprinkle with large amounts of the Cheese.
Serve with Garlic Bread and Soured cream, for that added relief.
