A couple words from Nell: I chose this recipe, because it is a family friendly meal that a friend of mine used to cook when we were still in Maastricht and still seeing each other for dinner. So it reminds me of the good old days.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Time: 50 minutes: Preparation - 20 min, cooking: 30 min.
  • For 4 people.
  • You can eat the chili with either rice or pasta, I would advise rice and, in this case, 150g per person.

  • 2 onions
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 500g ground beef

  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 large can of beans red drained (more or less 350g)
  • 30 cl beef broth

  1. Chop the 2 onions, the garlic and the red peppers.
