Chilli with Chocolate

Chilli Con Carne with Chocolate
(Gluten free, dairy free, Paleo, GAPs diet, egg free and nut free)

This is one of my week night go to meals as I can make a huge batch and freeze it up in portions.  Whilst this tastes amazing on nachos, loaded with cheese, sour cream & guacamole or with a size of rice, sticking to my current Paleo challenge for January has meant I just enjoyed it by its self with a chopped avocado.  

I try to avoid stock cubes as many of them have gluten, yeast and a whole host of E Numbers, so to make this Chilli nice and rich i add a little coco powder, which really brings out the flavor of the beef and tomato. I choose to use wine in this recipe, again to add richness, but this is optional and I would not recommend it for someone following a diet to eliminate Yeast.  I do use kidney beans for this recipe, but if you are going strictly Paleo you could substitute them for additional vegetables such as cubed sweet potato.  

Ingredients (serves 4 - 6 people)

1 onion
1 carrott
1 pepper
1/2 punnet of mushrooms
1 tin of chopped tomatos
1 glass of red wine
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 tin of kidney beans (or a large sweet potato cubed)
500g of minced beef
1 tsp coco powder
salt & pepper to taste


Chop all the vegetables into evenly sized pieces.  Add the mince to a large pan and start to gently fry (if it is lean mince you may need to add a little oil).  Once the mince starts to brown, add the vegetables and saute until they start to soften.  Then add the remaining ingredients to the pan, stirring to ensure they are well mixed.  You can now transfer this to a slow cooker and cook on high for up to 5 hrs or low for 7-8 hrs, or keep it on the stove top and simmer for at least 40 minutes (you may need to add a little more water if it starts to dry out), stirring occasionally.  Once you have the consistency you are looking for serve either on its own, on a jacket potato, over rice or with gluten free nachos.  Top with cheese, sour cream, guacamole or chopped avocado as desired.

One is that buying drugs online is actually less convenient than buying them in a brick-and-mortar shop. In accordance with Chinese regulations, online pharmacies can only sell over-the-counter medications, so anyone looking for prescription drugs online is out of luck.
