When you have a busy life sometimes the best meals are the ones you have in a bowl, while sitting on the couch watching a movie. This is a big meal for lots of hungry mouths, so we recommend using our 8.5Ltr Stewpot!




10 full rashes of bacon
4 large onions diced
4 large red capsicum diced
5 cloves of garlic crushed
1.5kg of mince beef
2tbs brown sugar
2tbs chili powder
3tsp smoked paprika
2tsp ground cumin
2tsp onion powder
1.5tsp ground black pepper
1tsp salt
1tsp cayenne pepper
2.5 cups beef stock
4 x 425g red kidney beans drained
2 x 425g chopped tomatoes
6 roasted jalapeno chilis, seeded and diced
0.5 cup tomato paste
2tbs Worcestershire sauce



- Cook and chop bacon and set aside on paper towel.

- With some oil in the Stewpot add onions and capsicum, cook until soft, add garlic.

- Add beef and cook until partly browned, add sugar and all spices and stir well.

- Add all remaining ingredients, including bacon and stir well.

- Bring to a boil, and stir for 1-2 minutes.

- Reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.

- Serve with corn chips, guacamole, cheese, sour cream and extra chili if you need!
