Chilli Night! How about something a little bit different?
I had some diced venison in and thought, "why not?".
If you want to try this, you'll need:
- Coconut Oil
- Onion, Garlic & Chilli
- Cocoa Powder, Ground Coriander & Paprika
- Worcestershire Sauce, Chipotle Paste & Beef Stock
- Chopped Tomatoes
- Oregano & Marjoram
- Black Pepper & Smoked Sea Salt
Melt some coconut oil in a heavy based skillet, browning off the meat and dropping in a bunch of sliced mushrooms to soak up all the good fat.
Now, empty the cupboards!
Ground coriander, paprika, cocoa powder, black pepper, smoked sea salt ... just bung a load in! Sprinkle over the herbs and then a good splosh of Worcestershire Sauce and some Chipotle Paste (I used some Discovery brand which has no offensive ingredients, just chipotle, tomato vinegar and salt).
Meanwhile chop up an onion, garlic and chillies, and blend together. Pour into the skillet and cook through.
Gently blend some chopped tomatoes, too. Pour these into the skillet and stir through, adding some beef stock.
Lower the heat and give it a couple of hours, topping up with water as necessary.
Serve up with some rice or potatoes, perhaps tortilla, perhaps not ... some grated cheese, perhaps, shredded lettuce and most definitely Holy Guacamole.
Deep flavoured, sumptuous and seriously smoky! Definitely a do again ...
