Directions

For a really tasty winter warmer with a spicy twist, try my Mexican casserole recipe made with beef.

  1. Peel the onion and slice into half-moons. Peel and finely chop the garlic.
  2. Heat some oil in a casserole dish (that has a lid) and fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the beef and fry until browned. Then stir in the flour.
  4. Stir in the cumin, cinnamon and chilli powder. Then add the tinned tomatoes, oregano, stock cube and some seasoning.
  5. Stir and replace the lid. Leave to simmer on a low heat on the stove or in a low oven for 1½ - 2 hours.
  6. When the meat is tender, stir in the refried beans and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid off.
  7. Then rinse the kidney beans, stir into the casserole and simmer for a final 10 minutes with the lid off.
  8. Once cooked, garnish with fresh coriander. Serve straight away and enjoy.

Mix things up by swapping the beef with pork or chicken for a great alternative.
