If you want something to warm you on the cold nights look no further.
This was going to be one of the meals that I didn’t post, then I tasted it. The chilli uses sausage meat which automatically gives more flavour than mince alone. Cumin and smoked paprika add the warmth to the tomato base. Leek is used in place of onion for a mellower flavour. Red pepper gives you sweetness and beef stock deepens the whole dish.
A great addition to this is the toasted tortillas. Brushing with oil and adding some salt and pepper you bake them in the oven for 5 minutes. They are the texture missing from the chilli. The idea of adding yoghurt to your dinner plate is a new one on me. I was pleasantly surprised, it actually loses it’s, err… yoghurty flavour and becomes something else. It absorbs the flavours around it and cools them somehow. I am tempted to make a big batch of this and keep it in the freezer for those nights when you get home from work , you’re cold, wet and can’t be bothered to cook. This will instantly pick you up, dry you off, warm your cockles and put a smile back on your face.
