Beef / Quorn Chilli

Beef / Quorn Chilli

I’ve made this delicious family Quorn chilli recipe for many years now. In fact, it’s so versatile you can substitute with Beef if you don’t have Quorn., and it’s just as tasty, albeit then not vegetarian. Using quorn will also give you the added benefit of a lower fat content too. But, either option is great – and it’s your choice! 😀

This recipe makes 6 portions, and is suitable for freezing. In fact it always seems to taste even better, once frozen and then defrosted. Must be the length of time it marinates for! 🙂

I like to serve my Quorn chilli with wholegrain rice. If you’re looking to make this low carb, you could serve this with a small amount of green vegetables such as broccoli or green beans instead. I find it really is quite filling so it doesn’t need much added to it to accompany it!
