Chilli Beef Strips | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

    This quick and easy meal is absolutely delicious with a bit of a kick.. swap mince for beef strips and try something new. Syn Free when following the Slimming world plan and only 267 calories per serving too.

    We loooove our chilli’s using mince, but Hubby fancied trying our usual recipe with strips of beef instead. Personally I think he was trying to blow my head off and trying to copy his favourite Mexican meal of “Chile Rojo”. Thankfully it is not quite as hot as that 🙂 The spices are based on a mild recipe so if you fancy it a bit hotter just had a bit more hot chilli powder :).

    All syn free… add as much rice as you feel you need.. hubby and i usually have approx 55g each for a hearty serving.
