My husband cooked this for me....it was delicious. It had just the right amount of sweetness and I enjoyed the black beans, not just for vegetarians.

This never fails to disappoint, always a crowd pleaser! We usually use cayenne chilli pepper for a bit of a kick.

I found this a little too sweet for Chilli so added a veggie Bouillon cube which worked also stirred through Corriander at the end very nice

This is now a staple for our 'make Mondays meet free' efforts. Avocado with 1/2 fat cream fresh gives interesting additional textures and balances the spice. Haven't used mince for my chilli since trying this.

This is now one of our family favourites, and my 6 year old son requested it as his "special birthday meal". We have served it with rice, or with tortilla wraps, home-made guacamole, grated cheese & creme fraiche. One of the nicest chillies I've had and you certainly don't miss the meat. The flavour of the cumin and the tang of the vinegar make it something special.

This is a really tasty and quick dish that even my meat loving husband really enjoyed! The radishes and sour cream are an excellent addition - and a sprinkling of chopped corriander works well too.

This was a very easy and fast dish to prepare. There was almost nothing in the fridge and I wanted to prepare something healthy. All the ingredients for this recipe were in my cupboard and that's how I ended up trying it! It went down well with my husband and 8 year-old, no mean feat especially since it was meatless. I'll definitely try it again.

Great vegetarian main course that everyone will love. Cider vinegar adds depth and we all loved adding out own favourite bits and pieces, radishes, avocado etc

Really tasty and very simple to do, using black beans is a great idea for variation on usual veg chilli!
