BIG FLAVOUR Chilli Recipe | Jamie’s Made Personal

Welcome to FridgeCam. Welcome to Sorted
Food, and can I say, welcome to my house. A chilli con carne is one of the dishes
that when I first started learning how to cook and fending for
myself – it’s one of the things that I first experimented with in terms of
mixing up the flavors adding my own twist to it trying to change things up
and then people started asking me to make it when we would go to family
events and it became my signature dish in a way.
Yeah it’s always been barbecue Yep. And chilli. It’s like those two things you
can heavily rely on Jamie to provide. I do have a baby and he is crying
so if you hear that I’m not ignoring him. My wife is there looking after him. She’s
a very good mother. Sometimes you can’t help it when babies cry. They do that.
They do that. My onions are sweating off, gonna get
them nice and soft, add in some garlic, in the meantime I’m gonna fry off my beef
mince, so we get some nice different textures. Bit of colour, bit of flavour on
that before goes into the pan. J’s asked me to come up with
something like a side dish, something different to just rice to serve with his
bespoke chilli con carne – and I thought what do you love more than anything
world? Polenta. So one of the key ingredients that we’re actually gonna make some
amazing cornbread. I think my chilli changes every time I cook it but what
doesn’t change is the sides. It’s more tear and share. Like if you’re taking it to
a family event, especially if it’s one of those kinds of everyone brings a dish, this
is just nice because it becomes a talking point. At the moment your Chilli’s
talking point is “J what have you done to it this time” –
Yeah. This is like another talking point to add alongside it. You’ve put milk in my beer
glass. This urgh. That is my beer goblet. So mostly cornmeal, a little bit of flour
and baking powder and then the wet stuff is eggs onion and milk. And then just
loads of sweet corn in as well. Right onions going in here as well. Impressed now? Mmm sweet corn with scrambled egg. Doing the beef in two batches because
if you do it all together, the temperature of the pan gets too low and it
doesn’t brown properly. By doing it in two batches I get some really nice brown
crispy bits and they’re going to add a load of texture into the chili when
it’s cooked later. I tweet World. I’d like you to meet Finn. He’s very
very milk drunk at the moment. He is 8 1/2 weeks old. And we’ve decided to keep
him. He looks as fed up to be in your company as we all do. Right, now that one’s browned off, we
will chuck this back in here. Basically we got a hot chili powder, ground cumin,
ground cinnamon, ground coriander. And we’ll chuck all of that into there with
tomatoes, kidney beans in the chili sauce, beef stock and whatever else I could
find in my fridge. I’ll do the cooking because I’m not gonna do that bit.
Basically I see what’s in my fridge and think “that could go quite well” so I’ve got
some like American hot sauce – this is your Amarillo chili sauce from Peru. So
when I say that we test every recipe before we cook it – this one you insisted
we didn’t because you make up as you go along. Bit of ketchup because I ran out of tomato puree.
Little bit of brown sauce, why not? You’re just like building flavour and then
just going “and a bit of that as well”, why not? Yeah.
You’re literally just emptying anything you can find into this pot. That’s how chilli
gets made. I’ve got some mixed hot chilies, which we can dice up and chuck
in. Oh no that’s quite a lot, ohhh no. That’s baby
vom. Sometimes that happens to me when I have too much milk. Oh, he’s
done it on this one as well! Bring it up the boil, we’ll put it all the
way back down to bottom and let that bubble away for an hour. Given how hot and well spiced your chili
is, I’ve gone for some fresher flavors in this as well. So some cucumber, some dill,
some lemon juice and it’s just… it’s almost that fusion of like Tzatsiki meets
raita, which is delicious with rich meaty dishes. I know there’s like 100 different ways
to make chilli, if not more, but this is my one. It’s the way I do it
and people seem to like it. It’s definitely not Texan cuz it’s got the beans. It’s
bizarre because it’s got this kind of dill, cucumber yoghurt on top. It’s with
corn bread which is awesome. You’ve also got a whole bunch of
ingredients in there that – like the cinnamon – yeah – it’s quite a sweet touch.
Yeah. And not too spicy. No, that for me it’s warming. Mmm-hmm. J that is absolute
delicious. I’d like to say we’re putting the recipe in the link down below but
the recipe changes every time. Yeah but what I see it as is a base for people
to add their own twists to. Well your chili was good. I’ve eaten it all. Always a
good sign. It was a small ball… Small ball? It was a small bowl for one person so
the fact that we both finished it – I’m not surprised.
But it was delicious. It was good. Question time and segway from chili onto
this first one. What is your favorite spice of all time? What’s my favorite spice. That’s a bit like I feel like the politician answer coming. Sit on the fence like I
do. No. Go on. No. My favorite spice is probably, and James was surprised I
didn’t put this in the chili actually, smoked paprika. I just think that
smokiness with a little bit of heat to it is incredible and obviously you can’t
have chorizo unless you have smoked paprika so… A question from froggy – what
is the most money you’ve ever spent on the one meal. I think it would probably
be about 200 pounds ish. It was at a place in Canary Wharf called Boisdale
for my 30th birthday. It was a steak, whiskey, seafood like lobster, jazz and
cigar restaurant. Which all your middle names. Yeah basically, and it was
incredible we had Lobster and oysters to start, steak for a main course.
So a blowout special occasion. Yeah. Can’t remember what we had for dessert,
but it was all rounded off with Rioja and a cigar and a very very nice
expensive Macallan single malt. Happy birthday. It was a very happy
birthday. This question from Elizabeth, we may well be sat in front of it, what’s his
family’s favorite meal to share? If you’re talking about the four of us, Finn just
eats milk, so I kind of have to discount him. But Evie’s started to get
into roast dinners. Okay. She’s not a big fan of pork, but we
tell her it’s chicken and she eats it so she’s happy. And she’s starting to
like roast potatoes and things like that so I think a Sunday
afternoon roast, with just the three of us, is something that we started to
do. But obviously Evie’s tastes are progressing all the time. She’s learning
new things and wanting to eat new things so it could change in the next six
months. Would you rather use steak scented deodorant or eat a shower
fresh scented steak? Surely I’d prefer to walk around all day smelling
of steak. You might. I’m not sure the rest of us
would appreciate that. There we go that’s the real reason we went to your house –
to see your offspring. Oh yeah. Why did you call them offspring, they’re children?
No…offspring. You are so not ready If you’re ready to give the recipe a go you
can get it downstairs, and when I say recipe – it’s a set of guidelines…
Yeah whatever you’ve got in the fridge, chuck it in. Give it a
go, what would you put in your chili? Comment down below. No dad
joke. It’s a Wednesday so we’ll just say goodbye? Yeah we’ll say goodbye and
look forward to a dad joke on Sunday. BYE!

    It's crazy. when I first discovered this channel back in 2011/2012, I hadn't even met my wife yet. Now I'm a dad, and seeing Jamie with his newborn just reminds me how far we've all come. I'm glad Sorted Food has been so successful and shows no sign of slowing down. it's been an great part of my life for the better part of a decade.

  2. Ewokdogg says:

    Finn!! I know I'm late on this one but hey buddy, welcome to The Universe!!!

  3. Stefan Miron says:

    Why does you baby need to be there

  4. Juan Carlos Rincón Gallardo says:

    I´m trying it!!I But I will grind the beef twice.

  5. Mayor Doctor says:

    Texan here, I'd love to try it, if I can hold back the vomit from the beans…. Just playin, looks like a great chili!

  6. Jim Fortune says:

    I lived in Michigan and California. That's Michigan chili.

  7. Phylis Maddox says:

    Impressed with the corn bread – good recipe based on on Southern corn bread. Looked like it needed more acid – we use buttermilk. You might try baking in an over greased skillet (cast iron with a pool of oil down South). It's very similar to how Yorkshire pudding is made.

    Really am impressed by the recipe – most people mistakenly add sugar.

  8. m daily says:

    Looooovvvveee made personal

  9. The Poor Conservative says:

    Did you ever notice how much Jamie's baby looks like Ben?😂🤣😂🤣

  10. Nelson Gonzalez says:

    Food for the soul!

  11. Sponsor Vignetti says:

    shout out to smoked paprika for real

  12. Jobi T says:

    Next time, instead of sweet corn, add creamed corn. Yum! Like sticky corn goodness when it's cooked.

  13. DeepThought says:

    My chilli is very like this one, never the same ingredients, I have even been known to chuck a tin of pineapple chunks in. Spice is whatever we have in the rack but I have, however, discovered a West Indian hot pepper sauce that is thermonuclear in heat and probably should be the subject of some sort of limitation treaty. I only need to add maybe half a teaspoon to a kilo of mince, otherwise my family complain it's too hot.

  14. Lee Kelly says:

    Hello fin

  15. Henrik Lahn Andersen says:

    The best spice is SALT – NOW some people will say salt isn't a spice because it doesn't come from plants – To that I say "well fine – pepper then". There is a reason why these two SPICES are on almost any dinner table – it's because they are the base! Everything else is just an addition.

  16. Nomaan Tahir says:

    Ben's got a Pixel (looks like an XL), the phone of choice for the discerning gentleman

  17. Finn Battersby says:

    named after me right Jamie? 🙂 @sortedfood

  18. Pia Nyström says:

    Jamie has got the same style kitchen as I! Same cupboards, knobs and tile! Only slightly bigger…

  19. Choly says:

    where's Mike's or James's made personal episode????????????????

  20. Rivka Shore says:

    I love this. I cook every day with my six kids hanging on me. Finally a realistic cooking show. Love this channel.

  21. Stacie McBride says:

    How terrible is it that I like a deep flavored chili so I add some molasses to it? I've never met anyone else who does it but I think its pretty good

  22. Eric Peters says:

    Good luck with your #words. this is how you do it #American style

  23. Mathhew Shurtleff says:

    say it with me everyone corn does not belong in cornbread

  24. Christian T says:

    Idk why it's called Texas chilli in from Texas and I've never seen chilli without beans here

  25. Trevor Johnson says:

    Oh my goodness, chili! I've loved having it, but I hadn't tried making it until a month ago, when I heard this Friday would have a chili cook-off at work! I'd been experimenting with recipes and personal attempts since then, and I almost gave up until this last weekend. I used a Pepperoni Pizza Chili recipe as a base guideline, but I thought "that's a little boring" and spiced it up with my favorite pizza: Pepperoni, sausage, and black olives. I was really worried about the olives, but they kept their firmness. They also added a subtle flavor that I really enjoy, so I'm definitely keeping them around. I kinda love the chili I made, and I hope I can recreate it Friday for the cook-off.

    Jamie, your chili looked delicious! After this Friday, I'll be a bit chili'd out, but I'll definitely look into trying some variant myself sometime.

  26. Steven York says:

    I think Jamie is just an American with a funny accent

  27. Samantha Mayberry says:

    Jamie, apparently it escapes you, but cornbread is the traditional side with chili… This fact seemed to be unknown to you during your Ultimate American battle as well… 😛

  28. Loretta Chin says:

    Jamie uses 3 pans to make chilli 😂

  29. angel wlliams says:

    Jamie's baby is adorable and should be on the show all the time.. maybe have a cooking time with the kids 🙂

  30. Christina Myers says:

    Finn!!! <3

  31. apirate namedjohn says:

    I am so disappointed in every part of your chilli. This was sad.

  32. Beejay Swifter says:

    Favorite spice? Ground coriander.

    In my chile? Chorizo, the fresh, Mexican-style chorizo. It really has all the basic chili spices and flavors. I add a ton of garlic and some cumin and oregano, and that's an almost instant pot of chili on the stove.

    I have that dotted bowl! It's my popcorn devouring bowl. 😉

  33. Karin Cope says:

    I do my cornbread in my Grandmas 75 year old cast iron skillet , I use my skillet almost everyday .

  34. Melissa says:

    NO beans in Chili, Love Texas

  35. Finn walton says:

    Best baby name there Jamie, if I do say so myself!

  36. Ann Other says:

    How many people came for Jamie Oliver?! I like this guy but come on man, Jamie Oliver is Jamie – you need to think up something different

  37. Jürgen Weißmann says:

    I hate Beans. Any ideas?

  38. katemagicat says:

    onion in cornbread….. huh…

  39. katemagicat says:

    tip for good southern cornbread: pour a bit of oil in the bottom of a cast-iron skillet and heat the skillet in the oven until the oil is hot enough to fry a bit of cornbread batter you throw in. pour in the batter and then bake. it gives a wonderful crispy bottom while maintaining that soft center.

  40. Tabitha Fox says:

    1:38 I’m sorry is rice the STANDARD thing to eat with chilli in England

  41. lynndec22 says:

    At about 1:30, Jamie said that it was time to fry the beef mince. I mis-heard it and thought he said, “beef mints.”

  42. um t says:

    That was like an indianified chilli like how I make it at home although I occasionally make a smokey version with smoked paprika

  43. Maria Sargeant says:

    Mum used to make Mexican cornbread casserole which was just chilly in corn bread it’s the best

  44. Thomas Spinks says:

    Jamie add salted peanuts. I did on my last batch of chilli and adds a unique texture to the recipe. I put them in at the last 20 mins. Just thought you might enjoy it if your a smash anything in chilli maker

  45. Aldina Riva says:

    That baby is gorgeous 😍😍 just like his dad 😊

  46. Mark Holderfield says:

    Jamie, you guys should come visit Texas some time. We've got all the Barbecue and Chili you could want. I'd be happy to show you around and buy you a beer.

  47. jhonnbalance says:

    Aaaaahhh Jamie as a dad is the best most unexpected thing ever

  48. 1lizziej says:

    Finn is adorns!
    Chili changes every time if you’re a good cook!

  49. Steven Pope says:

    No worries, Jamie. This is the way I've been cooking for 30 years! Use the recipe as a base guideline and then use whatever else is in the fridge or cabinets!

  50. A Lund-eatock says:

    That "add what ever is in the fridge" technique, I do it with Spag Bol

  51. skippymagrue says:

    To bean or not to bean, that is the question…

  52. James Carr says:

    Beer goblet lol love it

  53. auga says:

    Aww, your Finn is about 2 months older than my Finn. <3 Sweet boys!

  54. Sherrie Looper says:

    Jamie is the British version of my husband: goofy, sweet, funny, meat-lovin', & a great dad AND the first dish he made for me was his infamous Looper Chili, which is pretty much what these guys just did but with snausage, mushrooms & red bell peppers & the kitchen sink. That kind of man is a keeper!!!

  55. Stephen Laster says:

    i was about to comment on the beans, only to hear Ebbers flat out say "It's obviously not Texan because there's beans". You smart foodies! This chili does look awesome though.

  56. l r says:

    The like was for Finn 😉. The chili looks good too 😉

  57. princessrose17 says:

    ok, is rice with chilli a British thing? Im in Canada an you serve it with either tortilla chips or buns

  58. Evilstewie says:

    5:47 cucummy 😂

  59. BigBoi 04 says:

    Finn looks like Jamie.

  60. randomdoodification says:

    Ben says offspring, Jamie says kids.. I call mine Spawnling… My lovely little spawnling

  61. nicole pink says:

    If it wasn't for the accent… I'd think Jamie was Texan. Just based off his love of barbecue, steak, and chili.

  62. Becky Norton says:

    I thot i was the only one who said milk drunk ha

  63. Keziah Yates says:

    Please do more of these! They are so helpful for new move outs and uni students!

  64. Sara Voakes says:

    Aww jamie, finn looks must like you. X x

  65. Sara Voakes says:

    Tumeric is my fave x

  66. Ryan Roskey says:

    There is only one way to make chili and this is not it.

    The best chili recipient:

  67. riley kellom says:


  68. MissDoomNGloom says:

    I know it's been a year since this came out, but being from New Mexico and hearing paprika described as "with a little bit of heat to it" reminds me how brutal some chillies can be here. Paprika has no bite to me, but absolutely excellent flavor. My grandmother is from Hungary though, so we get the proper good stuff.

  69. brian brenton says:

    I love Sorted, I love you and all the other guys. When you are ready to make chili for real, hit me up, brotha.

  70. Riddhi Divecha says:


  71. fausti00 says:

    Lol "She's a very good mother" also she's Italian if I remember correctly so the fact that you and Ben are allowed in the kitchen is quite a feat.

  72. slushpuppie86 says:

    Cornbread is a Kentucky staple. Next time put a cast iron skillet in the oven to heat up when you’re making the batter.

  73. VictoryNibbles says:

    I'm with Jamie on the smoked paprika. Also, that cornbread is pretty different from any cornbread I've ever seen – but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

  74. alex finch says:

    So I made a combination of this recipe and their ultimate chili con carne try it recipe and my chili came out so amazing. Def one of the best chili’s I’ve ever made so thank you sorted. Your videos are amazing and I can’t wait for more.

  75. Rebecca Fitzgerald says:

    Jamie is really just Australian with an English accent lol

  76. Rosy Boa says:

    That is not cornbread. Yikes. Cute baby!

  77. Till Grob says:

    Guys, cornbread should only be cooked in a cast iron frying pan. Start it on the stove with lots of butter and then chuck it in the oven. Your welcome…

  78. JanTheNan says:

    Cornbread looks delish.

  79. MaZEEZaM says:

    Great video, much closer to the old video format I love, where we can actually learn recipes without the horrible childish commentary from the other 'children'.

  80. MaZEEZaM says:

    You were going well describing the 30th birthday food… then you said CIGAR ROOM EW….disgusting. They are like a deadly, fat, brown, cancer causing penis you have sticking out your mouth, bugger that.

  81. hashbrown beok says:

    omg Finn is adorable

  82. Celtic Echo says:

    When my other half and I met, our earliest conversations were about cooking. One discussion that turned into a debate was which of us made the best chilli! I said I did and he disagreed, saying his was better! We had a cook off and the result was that we both made amazing chillis, but they were so different, we couldn’t judge them equally! Over the 8 years we’ve been together, the chillis have combined into what we call “The Hybrid”!! It’s the perfect blend of our two fabulous dishes and is better than them both!!

  83. Cashmeoutside Howbowdah says:

    Apparently it's actually carne con chilli? I dunno

  84. Myrrhis says:

    Ok, just happened to catch 1) "chilli" should only have one "L" and 2) it's not "segway", it's segue.

  85. Seco4800 says:

    He's a little chunker! Adorable baby = instant like.

  86. JanTheNan says:

    Fin is tsking it all in.

  87. Karen Simon says:

    Little Finn is everything! ❤

  88. guitarfrozenintime says:

    Finn is simply Jamie without any hair!

  89. Rogan de la Peyre says:

    i deadass thought you said you went to a cigar and wiskey bar for your 13th birthday xD

  90. weirdwacky girl says:

    Being your kids in the show more. They are adorable… 😘😘😘 For Finn

  91. Al Christensen says:

    My favorite chili ingredient: peanut butter.

  92. Jeremy Gregory says:

    Mine is the same though I don’t use mince. I chop the beef and slowly cook the chili

  93. Julie Yen says:

    Barbecue and chili… Jamie you are the most Texan British man I’ve ever heard of

  94. changkra says:

    My chilli has about 5 whole red chillies with seeds and hot chilli powder with cumin and a load of other stuff

  95. B Tek says:

    IDK who translates your stuff into german but it sounds kinda wrong

  96. Nathan Fancy says:

    Thats what cooking is all about Jamie.. Favorite spice ..salt. Obviously you can't be civilized without it

  97. illegit says:

    It'd be funny if he dropped the baby and the kid died

  98. Garfield Pethuel says:

    I usually brown my beef in the same pan with my onions and bell peppers, helps mingle the flavors and saves time/space

  99. Danny Aakjær says:

    No dark chocolate?
