Hello and welcome to my first Instructable!
I am a fussy eater (mostly carnivorous)  and I often struggle to find things I can cook for myself and my two young boys.

I've never found a straight receipe for an adaptable chilli that can feed me, a 6 and 3 year old and still have plenty of leftovers for the freezer so here's my adaptation of a decent one from Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food book.

It's got a nice level of flavour of heat from the spices but without being particularly hot.

Thank you for your feedback. Chili is actually the American spelling, I'm British and we use chilli.
Oh, ok. Thank you for educating me! :-)
