Drain any excess fat out of pan into a separate dish.
Add the chopped tomatoes, passata, oregano and chilli powder.

Next is to portion it into labelled sealable freezer bags.
1 cup = 1 adult portion of chilli
Ensure chilli is cooled before sealing and flattening.

Ready to Eat
Simply defrost in the microwave or a pan until piping hot. I serve this with rice and sour cream on top.
It’s also great served in smaller portions on top of baked potatoes.

Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu
