- Defrost the Beef Chilli Frankfurters at room temperature. When they are defrosted, cut them in small cubes and set them aside.
- Meanwhile, finely dice the bell peppers and slice thinly the carrots and fresh chili pepper.
- Finely chop a red onion and mince 3-4 garlic cloves.
- In a large pot, on medium heat, add the oil and let it heat up. Add the onions and cook them for about 5 minutes until they are soft and have a bit more color. Add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes until it becomes fragrant, stirring it occasionally.
- Add the carrots and bell peppers and give them a good mix. Cook for 3 more minutes.
- Add the sausage cubes and cook for another 2 minutes. Then, add the fresh hot pepper slices, the stock cube and the spices. If there are no dried chili flakes, slice a second fresh chili.
- Mix them well and make sure that you stir constantly. Add the chopped tomatoes, as well as the tomato puree. Stir it in and bring it to a boil before adding more ingredients.
- Pour in the coffee and wine and cook the chili con carne for another 10- 15 minutes to reduce it. Season to taste.
- Bring the heat down to low and add in the tinned red kidney beans. Cook for another 5-7 minutes.
- Take it off the heat and add sweet corn and chopped parsley. When serving, add a dollop of sour cream on top.
- Serve with rice and a refreshing salad made with cabbage, lettuce, carrot and a basic vinaigrette. For added visual appeal, mix a little bit of turmeric with part of the rice.
