Spicy Mince

This is a recipe that I stole from my sister after she did a cooking course. It makes a fantastic spicy Mexican style mince. It is super easy and very adaptable according to what you have on hand. I generally serve it in tortilla wraps with grated cheese and basil, we have also discovered it is great with baked sweet potato and sour cream, but really you can serve it however you want. 

1 onion
1 pkt beef mince
1 chili
2 cloves garlic
4 or 5 tomatoes chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all spice
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp beef stock powder

Chop the onion and fry it in a little oil.
Chop the garlic and chili and add to the onion.
Add the mince and brown.
once mince is browned top the pan up with water and add all the other ingredients.
Simmer until the tomatoes have completely broken down and any additional water has cooked away.

You can also add green or red peppers or any other vegetables you like.
If you want the mince to be spicier you can add additional chillies or Perri Perri powder to taste.
If you don't have any fresh tomatoes you can used tinned ones or tomato paste.
