Turkey mince chilli with cauliflower rice

This is one of my favourite meals which I always look forward to tucking into. It’s hearty and filling, full of flavour, super healthy, quick to prepare and an extra bonus is it uses really cheap, easily available ingredients. 

I make my own chilli paste from fresh ingredients which beats any shop-bought products by a mile!

I hope you enjoy it too 😊
