I've made my own and I've worked it out to 12PP, which seems an awful lot :eek:
Would somebody mind casting their eye over my recipe and pointing, please?

500g lean minced beef - 24PP
two tins of tomatoes with chilli - 0PP
onion - 0PP
mushrooms - 0PP
peppers - 0PP
spices - 0PP
oxo beef cubes - 0PP
400g tin red kidney beans - 11PP (the book says 35g is 1PP so I've worked out the can to 11PP

This recipe serves 6, so equates to 6PP each

60g dried rice - 6PP

On my esource recipe builder it comes out as 11pp:

Chilli con carne


ProPoints® Value: 11
Servings: 6

Preparation Time: 0 min
Cooking Time: 0 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy


Ingredients
1 pack(s) The Co-Operative Lean Minced Beef, Reduced Fat, frozen 22pp
2 can(s) Tomatoes, Whole or Chopped, Canned (large) 0pp
1 medium Onion, All Types 0pp
1 medium Pepper, All Types 0pp
1 teaspoons Mixed Spice 0pp
2 cube(s) Oxo Beef Cubes 0pp
1 tin(s) Epicure Chilli Beans Red Kidney Beans in Chilli Sauce 10pp
360g Rice, White, Arborio, Dried 33pp

so yes, it's a bit high in points... although if instead than having 60g of rice per person you had 50g of rice per person (which is still a nice bowl of rice!) it would cut another point and get to 10, as it would be 28 propoints for 300g of rice. 10 propoints is a good size dinner which can fit easily in your 29 daily allowance!
