Great recipe - easy and delicious! I added some extra green and red chillies to this (needed a kick!) and it went down very well at a party. A plate of tortilla wraps with bowls of guacamole, sour cream and grated cheese will allow people to make their own chilli wraps. I shall certainly use this recipe again - thanks! :-)

Something was missing from this, not sure what? Hopefully it will improve for sitting a day in time for lunch tomorrow.

Loved this! Will definitely make this again. Super easy to make and enjoyed by all the family... although I did only use half the amount of cumin and paprika suggested and 1tsp of chilli powder (hot) as didn't want it too hot as some of the other reviews did say it was rather spicy, and it came out lovely!

I really enjoyed this! I especially loved all the peppers. I added 400g of butter beans instead of the mixed beans and thought it tasted great!

I was a bit worried incase this wasn't filling enough. I'm not normally a hug fan of chilli BUT I would rather eat this than mince chilli . I really enjoyed it.It tastes great, looks great and makes you feel very healthy compared to a big plate of mince.

This is a great quick meal thought it was a little bit spicy but I did use hot chilli powder and not as much as they said will use mild next time.

This is delicious and really easy to make - threw it together after long day out. Ought to warn others, though, that this was rather hot for mum so you may be advised to adjust the spices if you have a sensitive mouth! Perfect for me, though - although I did have ice-cream for dessert!

I was a bit worried about a meat free dinner. I made this for 3 people and we all enjoyed it. I would definetly make it again.

This is an simple and quick recipe to execute. It is easily adjusted for taste and spiciness and does not fail to please.
My vegetarian friends enjoyed it immensely.

Done this a couple of times now. Find it's a good recipe when there's little else in - have just used whatever beans are in the cupboard if I don't have a tin of mixed beans. The spices are lovely. Plus it's healthy, and warming on colder evenings.
