Recipe by katew
Taken from a magazine article on cooking within a budget - looks fabulous if done as individual gratins.

I made this as described, a very easy dish that suited us perfectly. Personal taste, I could have done with a little more chili, but it was perfect for DH. I prepared it on the stove, plated it and popped the plates under the grill to brown, this would have made a better presentation in gratin dishes as you suggest :). Thank you Kate, another winner, loved this (and DH says, even better the next day ;) ). Made for PMMR, Oz/Nz tag game, Christmas edition
