  1. First make the chilli: Heat the oil in a large pan then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes until starting to brown.
  2. Add in the minced steak and use a spoon to break up, stirring well until starting to brown. Add in the spices and herbs, then the pepper and mushrooms. Continue cooking for 5 more minutes.
  3. Pour in the passata and tomato puree (and beans, if using) plus the seasoning, then cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, parboil the sweet potato fries for 5 minutes then drain well. Mix together the fries, oil and seasoning then place on a baking tray - spread out well - and bake at 190C for 15 minutes until golden and soft.
  5. Make the salsa: Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl and chill in the fridge until needed.
  6. Once the fries are golden and the chilli has cooked, serve out the fries in a bowl then add a generous portion of chilli on top. Spoon over some yogurt, salsa, a few slices of avocado - and enjoy!
