Chilli & Coleslaw


This chilli is very mild because the children eat it but if you like your chilli hot like I do add an extra tablespoon of chilli powder or to your taste. This recipe does us two meals and we serve it with either baked potato or rice, I’ve really gone off rice lately and prefer potato or quinoa instead. The coleslaw can be made as the original or you could add in some apple and celery if that’s what you like. We have to make both kinds because I love the apple and celery whereas my hubby prefers the original, we would only make the coleslaw if we were having baked potato but of course you could try it with the rice or however you prefer to eat your chilli! :mrgreen:
