Chilli con (not much) carne
SERVES FOUR TO SIX
A lot of meat trickery at play here. Use dripping if you can – it’s saturated fat, but you’re eating less meat so a tiny bit won’t hurt, and it will add beefiness. Chicken livers are intensely meaty, and cooking the meat and veg until they are well browned gives lots of savoury flavour. This means you can get away with less meat. Replace it with bulgur wheat, which has the same nubbly texture.
