Servings 6


  • 5L slow cooker


  • 1.5 kg beef mince
  • 1 large red capsicum, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 x 400g cans diced tomatoes
  • 400 gram can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste concentrate
  • 2 tsps chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp beef stock powder
  • 4 squares good quality dark chocolate
  • Corn chips and sourc cream to serve


  • Combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate) into the slow cooker and mix well
  • Cook on low for 5-6hrs, stirring occasionally to break down any mince lumps (I like to use a plastic potato masher for a fine texture)
  • Place the chocolate on the op and allow 5 minutes to melt, then stir through well
  • Serve with corn chips and a good dollop of sour cream
  • Notes: This one has a bit of spice to it but not overly so. To give you an idea, our then 12 and 16yr old enjoyed it but our 5yr old found it a little 'too spicy' for her.  But to be fair she sometimes says that about breakfast cereal too so you be the judge hahaha. Use this as a general guide to adjust the specified chilli if you need to but to reassure you –I don’t like spicy chilli, and I loved this!
