Chilli Con Carne

3 tbsp vegetable oil
450g minced beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped very finely
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 tin red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 - 3 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium to high heat.  Add the beef and cook, stirring often until lightly browned.

Turn the heat down to medium to high, add the onions, pepper and garlic.  Cook for 5 minutes or until the onions and peppers have softened.

Stir in the remaining ingredients except for the fresh coriander, bring to the boil over a medium to low heat, stirring frequently for 30 minutes.  Stir in the fresh coriander just before serving.
I had some cherry tomatoes left over in the fridge so I chucked them in when I added the tinned tomatoes I love it when they pop when you stick your fork in them :)  Also this chilli is great if you stick a bit of grated cheese on top, my partner also loves eating Doritos with them Cool Original usually work the best :)
