This recipe is taken from Delia's One is Fun!
In a small saucepan, heat the oil, then cook the chopped pepper in it for about 10 minutes to start softening.
Stir everything well, then bring it up to simmering point and simmer for 10 minutes.
Then drain in a colander and serve straight away on a warmed plate with the sauce poured over and freshly grated Parmesan sprinkled on top.

The amount of mince gives enough to also make Spaghetti with Mexican Sauce
The first time I ever used Tabasco (hot chilli sauce) was when I made my first guacamole. This spicy Mexican purée, made with fresh avocados, chillies and ripe tomatoes, is still a great favourite.
