This is the best chilli I've ever made! I used a vegetable stock pot rather than a stock cube, plus the baked beans really add something-would never have thought of that.

Really cheap and easy recipe and produces quite a big batch! I'm only cooking for one (student), and this recipe produces enough for 3 - 4 meals. Like a lot of the other members, had it with sour cream and tortillas which really compliments the spiciness.

Used kidney beans, quorn mince and 2 minced garlic cloves as I had no garlic powder.

This was lovely.the only thing I changed was to use two bits of crushed fresh garlic. When cooked I put it in heated up totillas and rolled up and covered it in sour cream. It was yummy.

Very tasty- instead of rice I used it as a filling for tortilla bread.
Layered with refried beans, guacamole, grated cheddar and topped with sour cream( or Greek yogurt). Delicious!

I made this last night for me and my boyfriend and we loved it! I used kidney beans and Quorn mince and it tasted absolutely delicious. I did add water as it would have dried out and we actually managed to eat all of this between us. Very tasty and full of flavour! I served it with rice and tortilla chips. Lovely.
