This chilli recipe is a weeknight workhorse. It will feed 6 people and has plenty of serving styles, be it rice, mashed potatoes or even pasta. We like to go all in and make our own cheesy scones, which are much simpler than you might imagine. The scones tame the heat from the smoked paprika, chipotle peppers chilli flakes. Make chilli can overnight in the slow cooker, so all that's left to prepare are the scones; which won't take longer than 25 minutes to make. Bask in the glory of an entirely made-from-scratch meal.
