My love of chilli comes from when I was pregnant, many many years ago to say the least, I craved chilli and the hotter it was the better. Nowadays I don’t like it too fiery but still like a little bite in it.


Serves 4

500G/1LB Minced/ground beef

1 onion, diced

1/2 red bell pepper, sliced

2-3 cloves of garlic

1 can sugar free chopped tomatoes + 1/2 can water/beef stock

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, add more if you want it hotter

1 tsp paprika

3 rashers streaky bacon, cut into 2cm pieces

Salt and pepper to taste

E.V. Olive oil for cooking

Heat oil in a pan

Add onion and cook until they start to soften

Add pepper and cook for 1-2 mins

Add bacon and cook for 1-2 mins

Add garlic, spices and seasoning, cook for 2-3 minutes

Add beef stir in well and cook until it browns

Add tomatoes and stock/water, bring to the boil and simmer for 25-30 mins

Taste to check spice and add more if you want it hotter, if you add more spice you will have to continue cooking for a further 10-15 mins.

Serve with grated cheese or guacamole or both but watch you carbs.
