I love one pot recipes! Less messing about and less pots mean a big thumbs up from me. And this One pot Chilli is so delicious, full of minced beef, tomatoes, peppers, spices and rice.

I make this so often for dinner as it is just so easy. I cook the rice in the chilli pot so there are no extra pans and it is so easy to serve. Just spoon it into a bowl add a dollop of sour cream and you’re done. It only takes 30-40 minutes to make from start to finish so it is brilliant for those nights that you can’t really be bothered.

This dish also has 5 kinds of vegetables in it so it’s super nutritious as well as filling and comforting.

 I don’t like my food to be too spicy so I use mild chilli powder. If you prefer things a little hotter you can use hot chilli powder instead. I also use smoked paprika because I love that smoked smell and flavour! Traditionally you would use kidney beans in chilli but as Shaun doesn’t like them I use haricot beans instead which are the beans they use to make baked beans.

I always make this in my big stock pan which is great for this kind of dish as well as stews and soups.

    One pot meals are lifesavers. I have never heard of adding rice- but it is so smart!

    Followed your one pot chilli recipe but used turkey mince & chicken stock instead of beef! It was delicious! Love beans so added some extra cannelloni beans instead of rice! Will definitely keep as a go to Chilli recipe, will try with the beef next time.
