A match made in mexi-heaven!

Mexican food - simple, delicious with bright, citrusy flavours and a spicy chili hit. Which wine is the perfect match for our Mexi chili? A herbacaus New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is perfect especially with fresh corriander and a squeeze of lime!

  1. Fry one diced onion until translucent
  2. Add 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1 deseeded and chopped red pepper, 1 teaspoon of both paprika and cumin and a teaspoon of chili powder (go heavier if you like it hot!)
  3. Cook for a 2 to 3 minutes until fragrant
  4. Add beef mince and brown (tip: don't crowd the pan or it will end up boiling instead of frying)
  5. Add 1 cup of beef stock (or a stock cube/jelly) and a tin of chopped tomatoes
  6. Add salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar
  7. Simmer for 20 minutes, checking every so often and adding a splash of water to not dry the chili out.
  8. Serve on the side of steamed rice or corn chips with a side of guac and dollop of sour cream
  9. Enjoy!
