Making chilli beef in individual dishes topped with melting cheese turns a simple supper into a real treat. Serve with a crisp green salad.
• For a vegetarian version, omit the beef and use two 420 g tins of red kidney beans and replace the beef stock with vegetable.
• Chilli beef is a useful dish so why not make a double quantity and put some in the freezer. It can be served in warmed tortillas, taco shells or pita bread, piled on baked potatoes or simply with rice.
