Easy Beef Chilli

This Chilli is absolutely delicious, and quick to make. It can be served with sour cream and avocado, rice, or pitta bread. Chilli is also a great dish to make in bulk, and to freeze into individual portions, in order to minimise waste.

If you like your chilli spicier, add an extra teaspoon of chilli powder; or some finely chopped fresh chilli.
