  1. Can be doubled in the TM5 but only increase by 50% in the TM31 with its smaller bowl.
  2. If doubling in the TM5, increase sauté time to 10 minutes, increase cook time to 35 minutes and increase speed to Speed 1/Reverse.
  3. Delicious served with sour cream or crème fraîche, grated cheese, sliced spring onion/scallion, and some fresh coriander leaves. Nice with tortilla chips, too.

    Fabulous. I also reduced the amount of chilli to suit my kids. It was well received by everyone, served with wraps and guacamole.

    Yummy! Thanks for recipe- I only put in 1 teaspoon of chili powder as I knew it would be too hot for this household otherwise. Really tasty and I think we will have it in tortilla wraps
