Top tips for making Slimming World’s chilli with rice:

While chilli is easy to make, it can also easily go wrong. Make sure to follow the recipe and fry the onions off first, before adding in the mince. These will infuse into the oil in the pan and help the rest of the ingredients absorb all the flavour.
