A few weeks ago I was sent Heinz’s three new Hot Sauces to try out, along with ingredients to create easy family meals with a twist using the sauces. We were all keen to give the recipes a go and try the hot sauces.
Ingredients: serves 4-6
- Large Onion, Chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 2 sprigs thyme, roughly chopped
- 500g Mince Beef
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 150ml chicken or beef stock
- 3 tablespoons Heinz Tomatoe Sauce
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 bay leaf
- 400g can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 10ml Heinz Hot Sauce- Chipotle and Garlic
Sweat the onion, garlic and thyme in a large saucepan.
Meanwhile brown the mince in a seperate pan over a moderate heat.
Add the dried herbs and spices to the onions for a couple of minutes until they release their aroma and then stir into beeft.
Add the tomatoes and leave to cook down for approx 5 minutes
I first made it the older boys had their weekly football training and it was perfect for warming them up when they got home. The boys enjoyed the Chili too and I have since made it again at their request. Instead of boiled rice you could also serve it with a jacket potatoe. If you like very hot food like dad of 3 you could add some more of the Heinz Hot Sauce – Chipotle and Garlic to your taste. I loved the Fiery Chili Con Carne, a great dish for the autumn/winter nights.
The Second dish we tried was Simple Spicy Stir Fry with Heinz Hot Sauce – Yellow Habanero.
Ingredients: serves 2
- 250g roast pork, cut into lardons
- 3 spring onions, finely sliced
- 1 red chili, finely sliced
- 1 carrot, peeled and finely grated
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 10ml Heinz Hot Sauce-Yellow Habanero
Heat the wok on a high heat and add the oil.
Add all the vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes
Add the pork lardons and stir-fry for 1 minute
Add noodles to the wok and toss well over a high heat
Take off the heat and stir through Heinz Hot Sauce – Yellow Habanero
The last dish we tried was Mexican Soup with Heinz Hot Sauce – Green Jalapeno
Ingredients: serves 2
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 chili finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 400g can plum tomatoes
- 1 1/2 litres chicken stock
- 2 chicken breasts, sliced
- 2 limes, juiced
- Homemade nachos
- mixed beans
- slices of avocado
- 10ml Heinz Hot Sauce – green Jalapeno
heat the oil in a large saucepan
Add the onion and garlic, soften for 5 minutes, and then stir in the chili, cumin, tomatoes and chicken stock
Blitz in a food processor in batches, or use a hand blender to puree until smooth
Return to the pan, and then bring to the boil.
Add the chicken, reduce the heat, and then simmer for 10 minutes until cooked through.
Stir in the lime juice and season with Heinz Hot Sauce – Green Jalapeno, then ladle into bowls.
