Method

1
In a large saucepan, fry the onion in the oil over a medium heat until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the mince and cook until it browns, stirring to break up any clumps.

3
Meanwhile, peel the skin off the outside of the chorizo and discard, then cut it into small cubes. Cook in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes until the fat starts to run out.
4
Add the chorizo and fat in the pan to the mince, then add the sweet chilli sauce, pepper and kidney beans. Simmer for another 10 minutes.

Mix the cornflour with 2 tbsp cold water, stir in and cook until simmering again.
