Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Toss the potato wedges in 2 tsp oil and spread out in a single layer on a large baking tray. Cook for 30-35 mins, turning halfway, until tender and golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, for the chilli, put the remaining oil into a casserole dish and fry the onion and pepper for 5 mins. Add Cajun spice, pulses, tomatoes and stock. Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins. Remove casserole from the heat and stir in the chocolate until melted. Ladle the chilli into bowls, top each with 1 tbsp soured cream and serve with the wedges.

Absolutely delicious. I don't normally like beans, my husband is a carnivore yet both of us loved this! Will definitely make again.

A fantastic recipe that I have made over and over again, in fact I usually make a huge pot and the left overs taste even better the next day in taco's or jacket potato's.
I tend to use Jalepeno's from a jar and some paprika.
Healthy, filling, cheap and tastes fantastic - what more can you want!

A fantastic simple warming dish that we always look forward to eating! Both the wedges and chilli are delicious! To make it even easier use a can of mixed beans...

Such a delicious dish, it's very juicy and tasty, and i'm not normally a vegetable fan. I left out the chocolate and onions, and frying some finely chopped bacon along with the pepper at the start gives this an extra yummy flavour.

really amazing dish! easy to do and end result is just fab. would recommend swapping the cajun spice for your favourite chilli con carne mix as then it tastes more like a chilli but without the meat!

A really lovely and easy veggie chilli. Used passata instead of chopped tomatoes for a smoother sauce, and borlotti beans; also cooked for approx 45 mins to allows the flavours to develop more. Served with rice instead of wedges - delicious!

Cant believe how good this recipe is, also how simple! The taste after adding the chocolate is amazing, only extra thing I did was to a clove of garlic. Wow.

Made this for dinner tonight. Was unsure about the chocolate, but I agree that it really does make the dish. It's a great veggie dish, full of flavour and really made a great change.

Oh and I put some salt and cajun spice on the wedges before putting them in the oven, which made them extra delicious

This was delicious and so quick and easy to make on a weekday!

Accidentally forgot to drain the beans, which made the sauce a bit watery but as they came in a spciy tomatoe sauce the flavour was still good!

mmmm, delish! i also added garlic and they were out of cajun spice mix at the supermarket so i used all purpose spice mix instead - still work really well. yummy!

Fantastic! My husband, normally a staunch non vegetarian, thought this was lovely too. Probably the addition of dark chocolate that did it..

This is an excellent veggie chilli! Must admit I added extra cumin, as the cajun spice mix wasn't quite tasty enough. Loved it though. The chocolate really makes it.

Made wedges and chilli, have never bothered with wedges before opting for rice, but were so easy to make and tasted rly gd. Didnt have cajun seasoning so added 1tsp each of paprika, cumin and coriander plus a pinch of oregano and chilli powder. Worked rly well!
