Simple Chilli Rellanos
This is a classic Mrs Buckwell recipe - good for lunch or supper and served with a salad.
We grow and eat both chili peppers and green peppers in our garden - even without water they flourish! this version is cool - extra chillis can be added!
2 ounces butter (or marg) 8 ounces flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons thyme, crushed 1 large egg, beaten 4 tablespoons milk 8 ounces green peppers, sauteed 1 large onion, sliced 1 pound ground beef, lean (or use soya mince for a vgetarian flare!) 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon piri piri paste 1 tablespoon flour, to bind 2 ounces flour 1/2 cup grated cheese (or more if liked) 16 fluid ounces milk Make scone dough for base with butter, flour salt, thyme, 1 egg and milk. Press into a large ovenproof dish. Top with 8 oz green peppers - sauteed. and a mixture of the onion ground beef,salt and pepper, piri piri paste and flour. Place another layer of peppers on top of this. Mix together the 2 oz of flour, milk, grated cheese and 4 eggs. Pour over the meat and peppers. Bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour at the bottom of the oven - it should be golden and firm to touch.
