Recipes with chillies - 9 recipes

By Laurapackham

My long standing-love affair with chilli began as a toddler, gobbling up my Father’s famous extra spicy Chilli Con Carne recipe, which he used to put on the stove every Saturday night to eat as the family as we watched, ‘The Bill’. As a teenager, I developed an iron tongue while working at our town’s local Indian restaurant, ‘Flavours of India’ where I picked up plenty of Indian cooking tips from our chef, nicknamed ‘Cookie’. While some prefer the spice of a gingernut biscuit, I more prefer a knock-your-socks-off, eye-watering ‘Rogan Josh’ or ‘Lamb Kofta’, always with a nice garlic nann, and finished off with a cool mango lasse or traditional chai.
Tip: When your spicy tongue is suffering, don’t reach for the water; but a glass of whole-fat milk. Works every time.
Try: Chilli Coffee. Pop a few chilli flakes in your morning mocha, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

A great to use mince up for family meals at the end of the week!

  • 450 grams Minced Beef 1 Diced Onion
  • 1 Can Kidney Beans 1 Can Oxtail Soup
  • 1 Green Pepper (optional) Beef Stock Cube
  • Garlic (optional) Oil
  • Chilli Powder
  • Paprika
  • Hot Chilli Sauce (Piri Piri etc)
  • Fresh Chillies.
  • The above seasoning depends on how hot you like your chilli; I use the powders more for colouring & tend to use a hot sauce or fresh chillies for heat. If you don’t like it too hot try a couple of teaspoons of chilli powder.
