I wrote a bunch of recipes for my 250th issue http://efanzines.com/DrinkTank/DrinkTank250.pdf

SOme are a bit weirder than others...

Mine involves onion, garlic, sliced red capsicum, minced beef, a tin of tomatoes, a tin of kidney beans (drained and rinsed), oregano, bay, mexican chilli powder (or else chilli powder plus ground coriander and a little cumin), and fresh chilli. Add beef stock if you want a meatier taste, and simmer to reduce. Serve on brown rice (or on corn chips if you want it as junk food), with a little fresh coriander (and a little sour cream for the junk food option). If you want it thicker, thicken before serving with just a little cornflour-water paste. Another good way to have it is to add more chilli, another tin of tomatoes, and some water and turn it into a soup, served with a little brown rice in the bottom of each bowl.

We add a tin of refried beans to make it thicker.

That'd probably work better than cornflour. Refried beans really soak up the chilli, though, so I imagine you'd need to add lots more chilli.

I hadn't realised that. It soaks up the spice and makes it less hot? We've actually been making milder since our daughter was born, (and adapted it to be vegan-friendly) so I might have to whack a bit more chilli powder into the mix.

That's my subjective impression, anyway.
