This dish made me think of Masterchef for some reason – you know when they’re talking about the contestants and they say “that guy really knows how to get flavour into his food”? I always remember them saying that and kinda thinking – what does that actually mean?? But that’s basically all that happens in Masterchef, a bit of cooking and lots of nonsense comments and Gregg making those “oooooer” noises while scarfing a dessert…

In any case that is what I’ve tried to do with this chilli recipe – get lots of flavour into it. Because if I’m honest, I often find vegetarian chilli a bit bland and disappointing. But I had a really nice one the other day and it inspired me to try again and see if I could create a chilli I can be a bit more excited about. This is that chilli and it is pretty damn tasty…

The best dishes seem to come from the dregs of my refrigerator. Somehow a full fridge just isn’t as inspiring as a mishmash of random items that you have to cobble into a meal. This was one of those nights. A few potatoes, half a can of sweetcorn and a pepper was all I had to work with when I got home. It was 9 o’clock and I’d just walked back through the wind and the rain from my first attempt at getting back into shape after a very lazy Christmas, ugh. But none of it mattered once I ate this…

I haven’t done much gluten-free cooking before so when a coeliac friend invited us round and asked us to bring a dish, I thought it was a good excuse to try something new. And then I got a bit over-enthusiastic as usual so ended up making three things to bring! Oy vey. I blame it on having too much time on my hands over the holidays, it’s so cold and grim out there, I just end up sitting round the house and coming up with more things to cook! Oh well, it all seems to get eaten somehow…

Mexican food is probably my favourite type of food in the world. So it’s a bit of a shame that I live in the UK where it’s pretty tough to find a decent Mexican restaurant, let alone the ingredients to make a meal at home. But this is a pretty tasty substitute when you want a quick meal.
