Our 20 minute recipe

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the onion and red pepper and stir-fry for 3-4 mins. Add the Smoky Chilli Blend and cook for 1 min. Then add the beef mince and cook until the meat has browned nicely, (3-4 mins on a high heat).
Tip in the baked beans and the Chipotle Paste and simmer over a medium heat for 10 mins.
Divide the rice between 2 bowls and pour over the meat sauce. Serve with the sour cream on the side and scatter with coriander, if you have some.

OK not very chilli tasting and too sweet with baked beans.

Ok but wouldn’t make again. Used turkey mince instead of beef but found this a little uninspired.
