Slow cooker Chilli



500g Mince ( either lean Mince beef or Mince Turkey or Quorn) 

1 large Onion, Chopped 

2 Garlic cloves, Chopped

1-2 teaspoon Chilli powder 

2tsp Ground Cumin

2tsp Ground Coriander 

2tbsp plain flour

450 ml of Beef or Chicken stock ( depending what mince you choose ) or you can have 300ml of stock and 150ml of red or white wine if you are doing it for a fancy dinner.

1 can Chopped tomatoes

1 can drained and rinsed Kidney Beans 

2tbsp tomato purée

salt and pepper


Tip - Another thing you can add to it to kick it up a notch is 25g of finely grated dark chocolate you can even get Dark Chilli Chocolate in Aldi it is delish !! 


1. Preheat the slowcooker, Fry off the mince in a pan with the onion and fry until brown. 

2. Once the mince is brown add the garlic and spices and the flour.

3. Slowly add the stock and stir constantly till mixed, then add the tinned tomatoes, tomato purée, kidney beans and season with salt and pepper (you add the chocolate at this point too ) 

4. Dump the whole lot in the Slow cooker and cook on low for 6- 8 hours. Stir well and serve with warmed tortilla wraps and soured cream.

Or use the Chilli to make enchiladas or to stuff tacos or even serve on top of a baked potato, the possibilities are endless which why I love this recipe.
