Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
We are all ice skating, then come back to chilli in slow cooker.How much should I cook?I was planning a kilo of mince, 2 tins of kidney beans, 2 onions, 3 carrots, a pepper, 2 tins tomato, maybe some red lentils to pad it outServed with Jackets, dips, Doritos, sausages for chilli haters and rolls.A couple of desserts.Is it enough.My BIL is very greedy and will eat whatever is left, so it's always hard to judge if I've done enough!
I would double the beans and onions, use 3 peppers and leave out the carrot. Carrot in chilli? That's just wrong
So 4 tins of beans and 4 onions? Wow. I've always put carrots in!I may do some mixed beans to make it more interesting.
Well, that's what I'd do, I am queen of making a bit of meat go a long way. If you have 13, I'd cater for 16 just to be safe and that only makes 1/4 a tin of beans and 1/4 onion each. That doesn't seem so much to me.
I didn't really think of it like that. Great, thanks.
You've got me thinking now. I'm basing that on one tin of beans and one onion when I cook for out family of four. That's about right, isn't it? It's always good to have leftover chilli in the freezer!
Do you reckon it's enough meat? I might go in the middle and do 3 of everything.
I think most recipes probably call for a higher % of meat but I wouldn't.
