DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (if serving with pita bread).
  • Heat skillet with extra-virgin olive oil, add meat and brown.
  • Season the meat with salt and pepper, to taste, chili powder, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and paprika. Add the bay leaf, onions, bell pepper and garlic to the pan.
  • Cook until onions are soft, 8 minutes.
  • Add lemon juice and zest, Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce. Stir and reduce heat to simmer (for about 10 minutes while you make the couscous).
  • To make couscous: Bring butter and stock to a boil in a separate pot with tight fitting lid. (This is a good time to put the pitas in the oven too).
  • Add dried fruit and couscous, stir then turn off heat and set lid in place. Let stand 5 minutes. Add nuts and herbs and toss with fork.
  • Pile chili in bowls, top with "sand" and serve with pita wedges for scooping.
