When you think of Chilli, cooking it an actifry is probably not the first method of cooking that would come to mind, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out if I’m completely honest but it was delicious and actually tasted a little bit nicer than my usual stove top chilli. I would assume that my version could be made in any sort of hot air fryer, you just have to be careful of timings, I gave my recipe to two friends to test because they both have an actifry, one friend found that hers took longer to cook and the other said she had to do her onions twice because they had burnt so use your own judgement ass you know your own machine better than I do.
To make this you will need:
500g minced beef
1 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 chilli peppers
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin mixed beans
1 tbsp of tomato puree
1 tsp Cumin & cinnamon
1/2 tsp paprika & Chilli powder
Brown the onion and garlic with 1 tablespoon oil or some frylight and cook for 3-5 minutes.
Add the mince and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, puree, chilli and spices and cook for 3-4 minutes
Add the mixed beans and season.
Add 400ml water and cook for 20-30min until nice and thick.
Serve with rice and chopped coriander for taste.
It’s as simple as that! If you decide to make Chilli in your actifry please let me know how you get on.
