Other Recipe Ideas -

  • To mix it up a bit, load a fluffy jacket potato with a generous serving of Chilli - why not add a sprinkling of cheese too.  
  • How about adding Chilli to your Nachos? Messy, but so much fun to eat. 
  • Cook your Chilli in a slow cooker - walking in after a long day at work to this smell - nothing beats it. 

Tip Alert! Make large portions, and freeze what you don't eat. Perfect for when you need a quick meal another night.
