1½ cups of beans(preboiled).

1 red onion.

2 tablespoons chilli powder.

2 tablespoons tomato paste.

2 tomatoes.

1 bell pepper.

2 garlic cloves.

Salt to taste.

Black pepper.


Heat cooking oil in a large pot, add in your diced onion, mince your garlic and add it to your onions, fry them till golden brown over medium heat.

Pour in your minced beef and stir well for about 5 -7 minutes to brown it, add in your spices and mix. Continue stirring till the beef absorbs the flavours appropriately.

Dice your tomatoes and bell pepper and set them aside. Prepare your preboiled beans by running them through cold water then drain them, and add them to your beef.
