Being the only girl of four children, and working in an office where we are sorely outnumbered almost 10 to 1 by male colleagues; I think I am qualified to make some sweeping generalisations about what men like to eat: bold, robust flavours, protein-rich, nourishing, hearty fare. Best eaten in front of a large flat screen showing (here in NZ at any rate) rugby!
This chilli is perfect game-watching food. For anyone lacking confidence in the kitchen – do not fear, you are supposed to burn the veggies, it imparts a great, smoky flavour to the sauce! (I’m looking at you Dad.)
Serve steaming hot, in bowls with either rice or warm tortillas, topped with fresh guacamole, a little fiery salsa and of course, a large glass of cold beer.
