Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 small red peppers or yellow peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g minced beef
  • 2 x 400ml cans chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chipotle or smoky barbecue sauce
  • 4 cheese slices
  • 6 burger buns
  • crispy onions, to serve
  • iceberg lettuce, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the onion, pepper and garlic for 8-10 mins until softened. Add the mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go, and stir until it browns all over. Tip in the tomatoes and chipotle, or barbecue sauce, and add a little seasoning. Simmer for 10-15 mins until the sauce has thickened.

  2. Put the cheese slices on top of the mince and cover with a lid for 2 mins to let it melt into the sauce. Pile into the buns with the crispy onions, and lettuce on the side for scooping up the extra sauce.
