I was feeling hungry, so stale bread, left-over soured cream and a glut of chillies (due to the sunny weather), resulted in this snack recipe. Chilli rarebit is usually made with chilli jam or chutney, but raw chillies seem perfectly OK. Enough for 2 people:
- 4 small red chillies (deseeded and finely chopped)
- 100g mature cheddar (finely grated)
- 2 tbsp soured cream
- 6 small (or 4 large) slices of wholemeal bread (toasted)
- Black pepper
Mash the chilli, cheese and cream together with a fork. Spread the mixture evenly over the slices of toast.
Grill until the cheese starts to brown. Dust with black pepper and serve.
