Leftover chilli

Making the most of leftovers, is the best way to make the most out of life. We had made a rather nice cottage pie for our crew, on the day of their departure which was the Sunday. When we make a meat sauce, we usually have some left over and this time was no exception. So we had some leftover meat sauce, so it was time to make leftover chilli.


  • Between 1/2lb to 2lb of meat sauce.
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Chilli flakes
  • Chilli powder
  • Tomatoes
  • Small tin of kidney beans washed
  • Oil
Fry the onions, the chilli powder and the chilli flakes in the oil, until they are nice and soft, add the peppers and cook these with the onions for a few minutes before you add the pre cooked meat sauce and kidney beans. Once bubbling nicely, turn off the heat and add the tomatoes, then wrap the saucepan in a towel to keep warm.
When it is time to serve, warm up, tasting all the time and adding chilli and salt until you get a good balance of flavours on the tongue, then serve with rice.
