Chipotle Chilli Con Carne

Place a large pot over a medium-high heat. Add the Westfalia Plain Avocado Oil and heat. Add the onion and red pepper and sauté for 5-7 minutes until softened. Add the mince and sauté until it has browned. Add the garlic, tomato paste, chipotle and spices and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the vinegar to deglaze the pan and then cook for another minute. Add the tins of tomato, beef stock, soy sauce and brown sugar. Place the lid on and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, place the lid at an angle and simmer for 1 hour.

After an hour, add the beans and simmer without the lid for another 30 minutes until the liquid has reduced. Season to taste.

To Serve

Serve chilli con carne in bowls, top with cheese, a generous dollop of Westfalia Plain Guacamole, sliced jalapeños, red chillies, coriander and baby tomatoes. Add a good grind of black pepper and enjoy with fresh limes and crunchy tortilla chips.
