Step By Step - Instructions

1. I usually cook the meat separately first. This way you can break it all up while it cooks so there are no big pieces.
2. Fry the meat and set aside in a bowl while you make the chilli.
3. To cook the sauce, start by making your achiote paste. Grind 2 tablespoons of achiote seeds to a fine powder using a pestle and mortar or spice grinder.
4. Add the garlic and peppadew chillies and blend into a paste. You may need to add a little water.
5. Now fry the onions in the olive oil until soft and translucent.
6. Add the achiote paste to the onions and stir it all up.
7. Add the green chillies and about 400ml of the chopped tomatoes.
8. Fry for a further minute and then remove from the pan and blend with a large bunch of coriander until smooth.
9. Return this smooth onion mixture to the pan and cook over medium high heat for another couple of minutes.
10. Throw in the bay leaves and the rest of the chopped tomatoes along with the ground spices and chipotle paste.
11. Then toss in a couple handfuls of corn chips.
12. Stir this all up. The corn chips will break down and become part of the sauce.
13. Add the meat, beans and two large handfuls of Cheddar cheese and stir to combine.
14. Allow to simmer over low heat for about an hour or longer.
15. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve over rice, with tortillas or on its own topped with sour cream, grated cheese and fresh coriander
