Chilli con setas
300g chesnut mushrooms
250g chilli con carne sauce (Either buy ready-made, or fry your own with tomatoes, kidney beans, chilli, paprika/ capsicum, red onions, shallots)
2 tbsp oil or butter
4-6 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
Salt, sugar as needed
Herbs de Provence (alternatively, use finely chopped oregano, chives or parsley)
Paprika or chilli powder or just lots of chillies!
So...what's a student who needs to save money & time to do? Grab whatever's in the fridge and cook whatever! Like many of my dishes, may not look the greatest but it tastes just fine :)
Heat the frying pan for about 5 mins.
Add oil or butter, spread evenly.
Sauté the garlic pieces until fragrant. Add onions if desired too.
Add in the mushrooms and stir-fry in high heat for around 1-2 mins, then add in generous glugs of Worcestershire sauce.
Add in the eggs, some salt too if needed and stir fry for another 2 mins.
Pour the chilli con carne sauce, evenly spread out. Stir-fry the mixture for 4 mins or so.
Serve the contents into a bowl and sprinkle some herbs, chilli powder and/or shallots on top.
Serve with white rice while piping hot!
