Sounds delicious roy - and at only 210 calories per portion, can have it without any guilt at all! Have made a note of the recipe, thanks!

I prefer mine with a jacket potato because for the same amount of cals i can have a decent size spud as opposed to half a cup of rice.
I love kidney beans in mine but that pushes the cals up a bit. I dont put tinned toms in it either. I dont like my chilli too tomatoey.
100g mince, 1 onion, half cup chopped green pepper, chilli flakes, 1 oxo cube , 1 tbsp tom puree and a dash of water. 190 cals.

No, if you double the amounts it will feed 2 people with the same amount of kcals each. You can multiply the amounts by 8 and then as long as you make 8 portions the kcals will be the same for each person.
