My husband and children love this chilli, its so quick, and though it doesn’t have the heat and depth of a slow cooked chilli it has some lovely flavour and the banana, though sounds strange takes out the heat, so kids love it, and i didn’t tell my husband I added banana, because I knew he wouldn’t want it, but when he tried it he loved it. YOu can just serve it by the side if you prefer. Last time I made this It made enough for four of us to have two helpings plus husband had some next day for lunch, a large portion.
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 gloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
1 pepper, chopped, I normally use green for this dish
200g of button mushrooms, halfed
100 g chopped green beans
1 tablespoon of paprika…used smoked if you like it hotter
2 teaspoon of cumin
1-2 teaspoon of chilli powder
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon of tomato puree or ketchup
1 tin of kidney beans
Teaspoon of sugar
2 bananas, sliced into small chunks
Tablespoon of cream
Cook your onions in little bit of oil for couple of minutes, add garlic and let onion soften.
ADd your peppers,green beans and mushrooms for about 3-5 minutes untilj mushrooms are Browning.
Add the spices for 30 seconds and add tomatoes beans and sugar, bring to boil, let simmer for about twenty minutes
STir through the banana and cream, leave for couple of minutes then serve with rice.
YOu can always add extra beans or courgette etc to bulk out to feed more or use what you have in , It’s a cheap meal and you don’t need the cream its just to stop it being so hot, I always taste as I go so before adding banana and cream do taste you may want more chilli or sugar etc x
