Easy chilli

July 4, 2007

Chop an onion quite finely and crush two cloves of garlic. Fry them in some vegetable oil together with two shakes of ground cumin and chilli powder. Stir often enough than nothing burns. Chop a red pepper, a green pepper and a serrano chilli (if you like); add these to the pan once the onion starts going translucent. This is probably a good point to start some rice if you want it, or to microwave a couple of baking potatoes. Once you get bored (a couple of minutes, I guess), throw in some chopped mushrooms. A couple of minutes more, and throw in a can of chilli beans and a can of tomatoes with jalapeƱos. Reduce the heat and stir from time to time so that it doesn’t burn.

… and that’s it. Serve over the rice or potatoes, sprinkle some grated cheese over the top if you like. Keep sour cream on hand in case it’s too hot and some chilli sauce in case it’s not hot enough.
