The recipe I have posted below is a pretty basic one but it will certainly do the job.
In the place of lean minced beef you could use quorn mince, turkey mince or even lean pork mince.
I sometimes get to the cupboard and find I've got no kidney beans - thats fine, i carry on without them.
If I've got a spare stick of celery that needs using, or a courgette then i'll chop that up and add them to the pot. Mushrooms make a great addition too.
If i know im going to be out most of the day then I brown of the mince and put all of the ingredients into my slow cooker. This can be left on the low setting for about 8 hours, on high i put it on for 4-5 hours.
What do you add to liven your chilli up???
