- STEP 1
Heat two tablespoons rapeseed oil in an oven proof pot and add onions, leek & fresh chillies. Fry until softened and onions are translucent.
Add mince crumbling into small pieces and heat until brown.
Add spices and smokey chipotle sauce to taste. (Add more heat if you wish) stir in and fry for 1 minute.
- STEP 2
Add chopped tomatoes and red kidney beans and crumble in stock cube and dark chocolate. Bring to gentle boil. Add some warm water to ensure sauce is not too thick but has enough liquid to reduce. (200 mll)
- STEP 3
Preheat oven to 150 degrees and put the pot in the oven for 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. Remove after 1 hour and allow to rest while you make the garlic bread. ( You may leave it longer and reheat gently at a time of your choosing, even overnight. This will enhance the flavour further.)
- STEP 4
Coat french bread with garlic butter and place under an oven grill until lightly toasted. Serve immediately with warm chilli.
