Sometimes, it is the simple pleasures in life that mean the most. As Autumn is now upon us and the clocks go back this weekend, I find myself reaching for a quick, hearty meal packed with flavour and which are also versatile.

That is what I love so much about chilli; I can either cook it in under 30 minutes when I get home or put all the ingredients into the slow cooker on a medium heat for 4-6 hours for perfect tasting food without the hassle. With bonfire night and Halloween coming up, this recipe is great to have on hand.

Gluten and Dairy Free Chilli

This recipe is gluten free – but not that anyone will ever tell the difference. So grab a bowl and enjoy the spice on those cold dark evenings. I serve mine with rice (home cooked or packet rice such as Uncle Bens Basmati Rice which is non-gluten containing). Please do check before serving. I also love this chilli on a jacket potato with added cheese.
