Quick beef chilli

One of my nutrition clients loves his institutional ‘Chilli Thursdays’ but thought he’d have to give them up to reach his goals… not so fast! Here’s a quick and easy way to knock up a mid-week chilli that’ll satisfy your taste buds and help you with your body transformation goals. It’s all about switching a pre-bought chilli meal, or sauce, and starting with basic ingredients.

making beef chilli


[list type=”arrow2″]

  • 300g lean minced beef
  • 1 finely sliced onion
  • 1 chopped red pepper
  • 400g tin of kidney beans rinsed
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • Chilli powder
  • Tomato puree
  • Olive oil

  • Fry the sliced onions over a medium heat, in a little olive oil until softened
  • Turn the heat up and add the minced beef, turning occasionally until it’s all browned
  • Stir in the garlic and chilli powder (to taste – add some fresh red chilli if you like some heat) thoroughly
  • Tip in the tomatoes, tomato puree, peppers and kidney beans and stir through
  • Lower the heat and leave to simmer for 40 mins.


If you’re eating this within two hours of a workout then serve with some brown rice, if not it’s an extra portion of veggies I’m afraid!

This makes one Kieran size portion and one me size portion, with a some left over for my snack the next day.
