Noice-ities: My favourite winter recipe

As part of the Noice-ities theme week, Leigh and Laura are asking about your favourite winter recipe. Generally speaking, I tend to eat the same foods in winter that I would in summer. This is probably because I lack any kind of repertoire which extends to seasonal cooking as much as it has to do with a lack of a proper winter like they have down south. I have about 10-20 things that I can cook with any degree of success and fortunately, none of them seem to be any less edible in winter than they do in summer. So this makes it a bit challenging for me to pick a favourite that is more wintry than the rest. Not to mention, Rah already stole corned beef – my all time favourite comfort food that I can actually make.

So, inspired by my dinner for tonight and that it could probably suffice as a winter recipe – I vote for Chilli Con Carne. I didn’t come up with the recipe myself – it was sent to me by email and was vouched as being tried and tested many times. An email which I have stored somewhere on my computer. For reasons unknown to me, I can’t find it right now so I’ll have to make do with what’s in my memory and hope that it is right. I hope it’s right – it’s that particular memory which I’m using to make tonight’s dinner. :lol:

Cherie’s Chilli Con Carne

1-2 packets of taco seasoning (to taste)
1/2 kilo of lean beef mince
1 can Mexe-beans (or similar)
4 tbs tomato paste (or pizza sauce)

1 beef stock cube
1 can of diced/crushed tomatoes
1 cup water.
1 large onion.
Splash of olive oil for the pan

Method.
Brown mince and onion in a saucepan with a little bit of olive oil
Rinse and drain the beans, corn and tomatoes then add it to the browned meat and onion.
Mix the water, taco seasoning and beef stock cube together and pour into the saucepan.
Add anything else in the ingredients list that I forgot to mention and stir well.
Leave simmer on the stove for a while until the liquid content reduces.
Serve with rice or mashed potato.
