This is a very easy recipe and works every time. If you’d like to make it a little more homemade, you can always make your own crust and you can puree your own pumpkin.
To make your pumpkin puree, cut a pie pumpkin in quarters, scoop out seeds, place in a large microwave safe bowl with some water in the bottom, cover with cling film, and cook for 15min in mircowave. Once flesh is cooked, puree with food processor or blender. I ususally pass the puree through a sieve to make sure I get a very smooth puree.

This is my quick & easy go-to chilli recipe. It takes about 30-60min to cook and tastes great.
The ingredient list is short, but you can add or substitute whatever you like. I usually serve this with rice, a baked potato, some corn chips or just on its own with some grated cheese. This chilli recipe also freezes well, so I often make a double batch and then freeze individual portions for later.
Chilli Recipe — Serves 4-6:
1 onion, chopped
1 pepper (any colour), chopped
500g ground/mince beef
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tablespoons ground chilli seasoning
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 x 420g tins diced tomatoes
1 x 400g tin red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
– Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and saute until onion has softened.
– Add beef mince and stir until browned.
– Add tomato paste and mix in well. Then add chilli seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and mix.
– Add tinned tomatoes and kidney beans and stir well.
– Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occassionally, until desired consistency is reached.
Please note: If you are going to simmer longer than 30 minutes, then reduce heat to low or add more liquid (tomato sauce or an extra tin of tomatoes).
