Cheesy Chilli Wedges suitable for Slimming World, and syn free if using the cheese as your healthy extra allowance.

Serves 4 – Ingredients:

For the chilli:

500g 5% fat beef mince
2 Onions
2 Peppers
Button Mushrooms
1 Tin of kidney beans
1 Tin of button beans
3 tbsp Tomato puree
1 tsp chilli powder
3 tsp cumin
2 tsp finely chopped garlic (I use ‘Lazy Garlic’ in vinegar)
200ml Beef stock
1 oxo cube
Splash of lea & perrins
1 carton chopped tomatoes with herbs
Salt & Pepper

For the wedges:

Potatoes (however much to feed your family!)
Fry Lite – Olive Oil one is best for roasting
Salt & Pepper

And cheese for on top!

Method:

Brown the mince with a crumbled oxo cube, garlic and chopped onion.
Whilst that is browning, prep your wedges and parboil for 12 minutes.

Once the mince is browned add everything else give it a good stir and then turn down to simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Drain the parboiled potatoes and then transfer to a baking tray (too close together and they won’t crisp up nicely so spread them out) spray with fry lite and top with cracked salt and pepper, the pop into a pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes at 200 degrees.

Once the wedges are cooked top with the chilli and cheese and place back in the oven until the cheese has melted.

Serve straight away with a side salad.
