Fiesta! Home made chilli

I've blogged solidly about eggs for the last two weeks.

So it's high time I gave the chickens a rest and talked about something else. 

Tonight Sam and myself decided we'd have chilli. So as the football was on it was a great opportunity for me to cook all my myself aka get drunk in the kitchen without him nagging at me for "drinking again."

First up: pour glass of wine.

Chop up two carrots, two red peppers, two garlic cloves, two celery sticks and two onions and wang them in a deep casserole dish or frying pan. Add in a heaped teaspoon each of cumin, cinnamon and chilli powder and stir every 30 seconds for about seven mins. If you like yours extra spicy you can always add a fresh red chilli.

Throw wine away. It's disgusting, your brother bought it round last week and it tastes like vinegar.

Add to veggies a can of kidney beans and a can of chickpeas and two cans of chopped tomatoes.

Mix yourself a gin and tonic which is too strong for a Monday night.

Add to veggies your lean steak mince and stir. Add coriander and some water.

Put more tonic in G&T. It really is too strong for a Monday night.

Turn the heat up until the chilli starts to boil, then turn it down to simmer, and cook on a low heat for one hour.

Meanwhile make your guacamole. Chop up a few tomatoes and a chilli and blend with some avacado and corriander in a food processor. Drizzle some tortilla wraps with olive oil and put in oven for 5 mins. Give both to boyfriend for "half time snack."

Serve with rice, natural yoghurt and grated cheese.
