Peel the onions and garlic. Slice the onions and finely chop the garlic.
In a frying pan, lightly fry the onions and garlic over low heat. Do not brown them.
Meanwhile, in a cast iron pan, fry the mince in a little olive oil. Season with salt. Stir regularly.
Add the onions and garlic to the mince.
Season with all the spices and heat over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring.
Add the tomato puree and beef stock. Check the seasoning. Cook without covering for 1 hour.
Add kidney beans 15 minutes before the end of cooking.
Chilli always taste better the longer you let it simmer slowly, so don't hesitate to make this dish well in advance. And...it tastes even better reheated the next day - you will really get the best of all the flavours.
