Recipe from


"Chilli is so good when made well. I

have used two types of beef for texture

and different chilli for the same reason.

Cook it slowly and it will taste amazing.

My secret ingredient is cocoa, it really

adds depth. Merchant Gourmet's 50%

British Quinoa and 50% Wholegrain

Rice is great, as it adds slow-release

carbs and good proteins. The avocado

is a source of vitamins and good fat."

- Chef Sophie Michell


1.Heat up the oil in a large heavy based

frying pan, until very hot and then fry

both cuts off until golden brown (this will

take about 8/10 minutes)

2.Then add the onion and garlic, cook

for 8 more minutes, then add the spices

3.Cook for 5 minutes then add the

tomatoes, stock and tomato paste.

You can also add chopped chilis and

coriander at this point if you would like.

Bring to the boil, then turn down and

simmer for 2 hours on a low heat. Stir

occasionally to stop it from sticking.

4.When the chuck steak is tender, it is

ready to go, so check the seasoning one

more time and then add the cocoa.

5.While the chilli is cooking, dice the

avocado and half the cherry tomatoes,

finely chop the Jalapeño, and roughly

chop the coriander, mix together, season

and stir in the lime.

6. Serve with quinoa or wholegrain rice.
