In a medium saucepan, add the water (for the rice) and bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered for another 10 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Zest the lemon to get a generous pinch, then slice in half. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Slice the corn kernels off the cob. Finely chop the cucumber. In a small bowl, combine the cucumber, a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Season to taste and toss to coat.


In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 4-5 minutes. Add the All-American spice blend and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Add the grated carrot and corn to the pan and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes with garlic & olive oil and water (for the sauce) to the pan and crumble in the beef stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people). Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook until reduced and thickened, 2-3 minutes. Season to taste.

TIP: Add a dash of water if you prefer a looser chilli!


Divide the rice between bowls and top with the American chilli and shredded Cheddar cheese. Serve with the lemon crema and cucumber salsa.
