  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 700g Asda Butcher’s Selection Lean Beef Mince
  • 3-4 level tsp Asda Chilli Powder (hot or mild)
  • 1 level tsp ground cumin
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 beef stock cube, dissolved in 300ml hot water

  • 2 x 400g cans Asda Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour and crusty bread, to serve
  • In a large saucepan, fry the onion in the oil over a medium heat until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the mince and cook until it browns, stirring to break up any clumps.
