  8. Now, for the final step pick up the ground paprika and cracked pepper and taste the chilli beef mixture adding in extra paprika and pepper to taste. Note – if the diced tomatoes were of the “no salt added” variety, you may need to add a little extra salt at this point. If the mixture is too salty or sour, you can correct by adding a little more honey.
