Mummy’s Beany Chilli!

I LOVE being creative in the kitchen. I do follow recipies but, over time, I like to add my own twist to them and experiment…and this is where my Beany Chilli has come from!

Adding beans to a chilli allows you to make the meal go further, and being on a budget this is just great! One meal can often make two…

For this meal I used one of the packs of Lean Minced Beef that came with my Hazeldine’s Original Butcher’s Weekly Wrap

Feeding a family with the Butcher’s Wrap from Hazeldines!

As you’ll know by now, I’m no stranger to meal planning. I must admit, I quite like the challenge of getting everything prepared and getting organised.

So, for the last two days I’ve been putting my meal planning method to the test, trying to keep on track with my budget shopping week…and I suppose the question is how is it all going?

Well Sunday night was the first meal from my plan and I was actually really pleased at how much veg I had left over! I used 3 of my frozen chicken breasts with some carrots, celery, onion and swede to make a casserole which was really tasty due to the added smoked paprika! I served it with mashed potato and some broccoli – of which I have plenty left of both. We even had a scoop of ice-cream each for pudding (and the boys had a few mini marshmallows, that I found in the cupboard, on the top).
