Chili con Carne

If you are going to use the oven method then preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

Chop up the onions and garlic in the food processor and fry in some olive oil until softened. Add the chilli powder and cumin and a little seasoning.

Chop up the meat in the processor and add to the pan, cooking it until slightly browned.

Place the sun dried tomatoes and chillies in the processor with the oil and blend to form a paste. Add these to the beef with the tomatoes, cinnamon stick and a wineglass of water. Season a little more if need be.

Bring to the boil, cover with greaseproof paper and the lid, then either turn the heat down to simmer and cook for 1 1/2 hours or transfer the pan to the oven for about 1 1/2 hours.

Add the red kidney beans 30 minutes before the end of cooking time.
