Method

  1. Coat a large, non-stick saucepan in spray oil and warm over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, carrot and pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring regularly, until the onion starts to soften.
  2. Add the turkey mince and stir to break up any large pieces. When the mince has browned, add the kidney beans and mix.
  3. Sprinkle the spices over the mince and mix thoroughly. Then add in the chopped tomatoes, stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for about 25 minutes.
  4. While the chilli cooks, prepare the rice as instructed on the packet.
