  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the onion on a medium heat until softened. Add the beef with some black pepper and a little salt, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon, and cook until browned. Add the chipotle and Cajun seasoning. Give it a good stir and cook for 1 min more.

  2. Tip in the beans and tomatoes, then crumble over the stock cube. Add a can of water and simmer for about 20-30 mins, until thickened. Add the chocolate, and stir until melted, then add most of the coriander.

  3. Serve the chilli in bowls on top of the rice sprinkled with the rest of the coriander, with a dollop of low-fat yogurt, and an extra drizzle of chipotle paste on top.

I made this recipe with the following two modifications; * 400g lean mince (because that's how much came in the pack). * I have two very fussy children, so instead odd Chipotle Paste, I made a milder alternative with the following ingredients: 1 T tomato paste, 1 T apple cider vinegar, 1 t smoked paprika, 1/2 t cumin, and a pinch each of oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I got that alternative paste recipe from These alterations made the dish very mild. It was very nice and I will make it again. My children and I enjoyed it with the yoghurt, my husband liked it without.

Can you store the leftovers in the fridge and re-heat this the next day?

Thank you for your question. Yes you can store it in the fridge overnight and reheat it the next day. Pop it in a saucepan on the hob or reheat it in the microwave. For more information on what to do with leftovers, especially rice, take a look at the following article:
