Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 lb lean minced beef
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 jalapeño chili, halved, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • One 15-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate, broken
  • One 15-ounce can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Directions

Heat the oil in a large sauté pan to medium high. Add the chopped onion and garlic and fry gently until softened and golden. Add the minced beef and fry, stirring, for 10-15 minutes, or until browned. Add the tomato purée, chilli and spices and fry for a further 5 minutes.

Now add the chicken stock, tomatoes and chocolate, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil,

place cover on and simmer for 30 minutes until the meat is tender.

Transfer the meat to a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving the juices in the pan. Add the kidney beans to the meat.

Bring the juices to a boil and reduce by about half. Skim off any fat. Pour over the meat, mixing well. Season and serve.
