Adapted from a recipe by Chef Jean-Francois Fortin of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, this chili makes a big pot – perfect for when you have the gang over or want to stock your freezer with speedy weeknight dinners. The seasoning is quite mild so if you want to spice it up, serve with some hot sauce or add ½ tsp chili pepper flakes while sautéing the seasonings.

This dish has a lovely fresh flavour from the mango and fresh tomatoes. Slightly exotic but made from basic ingredients. It is best to cut the short ribs into ¾ inch cubes when making as a starter course, but if making for the main, it is kind of nice to leave the short ribs in the big chunks as they come.
