This recipe is designed to incorporate a lot of vegetables. The capsicum, carrot and zucchini are optional.

If the kids aren't keen on kidney beans but you would like to include the extra fibre they provide, include 1/2 or all the kidney beans when you add the other vegetables.

It is reasonable spicy. For a mild meal reduce the spices, particularly the fresh red chilli and chilli powder. For a really spicy meal include seeds and pith for the chilli


- grind your own coriander and cumin in advance
- mince your own beef in advance
- use 2 teaspoons of TM garlic paste instead of garlic cloves

Serving Suggestions

Serve with brown rice or tortilla chips, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, guacamole and sour cream.
