Chunky Chilli


Got to love a chunky chilli.  Easy to make, tasty and can be served up so many ways.  With rice, in a burrito, on a baked potato to name three.  Plus bulk cooking it is easy and any leftovers taste better the following day.


This is my go to recipe for unexpected (but none the less welcome visitors) or if I have a super busy week lined up.

Typically this gives 4 Servings.

Macros per 100g:

Calories 218, Fat 10g, Carbs 26.48g, Fiber 3.8g and 22.51g Protein


  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 500g Lean 5% Fat Beef Mince
  • 2 x Bell Peppers
  • 3 Chillies
  • 35g Beyond Dark Chocolate Drops
  • 780g Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 400g Kidney Beans in Water

You will need:

  • Vegetable Chopping Board
  • Sharp Knife
  • Large Pan
  • Spatula
  • Colander
  • Add your olive oil to your saucepan on a medium high heat

  • Chop up your onion and cook for 5 minutes

    Stir occasionally

  • Chop up your garlic 3 minutes into the cooking of your onion

    Stir occasionally

  • Add your mince to the saucepan

    Stir occasionally

  • Deseed and chop up your peppers and your chillies

    Don’t worry about chopping it to finely

  • Cook the mince until browned all over

  • Once browned add your chillies and peppers

  • Add your chocolate chips and stir in until melted

  • Strain, rinse and add your kidney beans to your chilli mix

  • Add your chopped tomatoes and tomato puree and stir in

    Turn heat down to a low medium and simmer for 20 minutes

  • Serve and enjoy

    This keeps well in an air tight container in the fridge
