This is one of my favourite go-to recipes. It’s quick, tasty, and I normally have all the ingredients in store. It’s great filling for enchiladas.

The amount of spice listed here is the absolute minimum for my taste; I often use a lot more.


  • 1kg minced beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 eating apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 3 jalapeƱos
  • 70g raisins
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2tsp ground cumin
  • A big wallop of Worcester sauce


  1. Heat corn oil in a large frying pan and add the beef, onion and garlic. Fry until the onion is soft and the meat browned.
  2. Add the other ingredients and cook uncovered for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
