Nigella's Quick Chili

Another chilli recipe, but this one is perfect for a weeknight as its thrown together pretty quickly. It has quite a sweet taste and although not entirely authentic is really good.

150g Chorizo, sliced into half moons
500g Minced Beef
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cardamon pods, bruised
500g Jar of Roasted Vegetable and Tomato pasta sauce
Tin of chili beans
60ml Sweet Chili Sauce

Step 1: Fry chorizo until releases oil then add the mincemeat and cook on high for 5 minutes
Step 2: Add spices then pasta sauce, chili beans and sweet chili sauce
Step 3: Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes
Step 4: Serve with some rice, sour cream and grated cheese


  1. Quck, easy and very tasty..a winning combination:D

  2. Oooh I've made that a few times now - lovely I must say.

  3. I would never have thought to use sweet chili sauce

  4. I have fond memories of this chilli. Delicious but not so good for the waistline. I do add a dash of sweet chilli sauce to my own chilli now to make a change from chocolate. Yummy :)

  5. Another of your great quick and easy recipes, Beth. It looks positively smashing.

    BTW, I've given you an award. Pop on over to my place sometime to collect it.

  6. Have not made but been on receiving end of this and was really good, sweet as you say but timing wise is a winner! :)

  7. I've not made Nigella's Quick Chilli but it looks great!
