Preparation time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 70 minutes, Serves: 2
2 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin

3 Tbsp tomato puree
200g tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and cubed
250ml beef chicken stock
Salt and black pepper to taste
100g red kidney beans
In a saucepan over medium heat add 2 tablespoons of oil and cook the onions for a few minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and cook for one more minute.
Add the chili powder, oregano and cumin and cook, stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes. This will intensify the flavor and aroma of the spices.
Add the beef and cook for 5-6 minutes, turtning often, until the meat is browned.
Stir in the tomato puree, the cubed tomatoes and stock and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer, stirring often, for about 1 hour. Check every 15 or 20 minutes and if the sauce is too dry, add some water to keep it from sticking.
Add the red kidney beans, stir and serve with fresh coriander and sour cream.
