Netflix & Chilli


After reading a facebook thread on how to make the best chilli sin carne, I got really excited to try the tricks out myself... because who can say no to a warming bowl of chilli in these darkening times? Especially when the left-overs can be made into a big ol'nacho plate!

Chilli sin Carne

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 2 dl (~1 cup) red lentils
  • fresh coriander
  • 1 can sweet corn

For serving:

  • jasmine rice
  • lime wedges
  • fresh coriander
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 chilli fruit
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2-3 carrots
  • spices of your liking: such as cayenne, thyme, black pepper, paprika, salt
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 2 bay leaves
  1. Saute onions, bell peppers, chilli, garlic and carrots on medium heat for a few minutes, until softened.
  2. Add spices and give a stir, before adding the crushed tomatoes, lime zest, vegetable stock and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer before adding the rinsed beans and lentils. Let simmer for ~25 mins, adding the corn and coriander in the last 5.
  3. For serving, sprinkle generously with chopped fresh coriander and lime juice. Eat hot with rice!

Do you have any Netflix dramas worth watching whilst enjoying a bowl of chilli?

My current faves are Gypsy and (guilty pleasure, I never get too old for teen dramas it seems!) Riverdale.
