Chilly weekend for Cape Town
Maybe a Beef and Bean Chili would be appropriate this weekend…
BEEF and BEAN CHILI
4 servings1 kg ground extra lean grass-fed beef or ground turkey breast
1. Brown the meat in a big pot. Drain excess fat, leaving a small amount to cook the onions in.
2. Add the onions and cook about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeno; cook until just tender. Stir in the chili powder and cumin. Continue to cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
3. Stir in the crushed tomatoes and the tomato sauce. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
4. Add the beans and continue cooking, uncovered, until meat and beans are very tender, and chili is thick, about 30 minutes. Serve in small bowls. Garnish each bowl with 1 tablespoon of yogurt and cheese.
