Delicious filling midweek veggie meal. Made it with black beans and kidney beans and added some courgette, mushrooms and carrot with the onions and peppers for a bit more bite.

I used 1 tin mixed beans and 1/2 big tin of chickpeas for 3 portions and added some sweet potatoe as I had some left over. I served it twice with rice and once added 2/3 a takeaway container of water and then a portion of cous cous and reheated it. It tasted lovely!! Didn't bother with the yogurt.

Really good recipe. Didn't change a thing. (don't use tinfoil under the wedges though, they stick like crazy).

Fantastically easy dish and really tasty, great mid-week or for veggie nights. I often make this with cauliflower rice.

Delicious with jacket potato. I used frozen peppers and the recipe was still lovely. I shall certainly be making again.

Had no shopping in so was looking for something I could make with random store cupboard ingredients and came across this. Recipe is super adaptable however and was a massive hit. Will be making again for sure!

This is a really tasty, easy and heartwarming chilli that doesn't leave you feeling guilty! Highly recommended

Beautiful dish!! I did gather some inspiration from the comments below and made a few amendments though! I used beans in a chilli sauce instead, added sweetcorn and also put some chilli flakes in for good measure. I left out the chocolate. The wedges were shop bought (sorry!!) and we had sour cream and chive dip with it instead. This is a wonderful dish! Actually have some in the freezer waiting to be defrosted. Great mid-week go-to quick dinner!

This was a big hit! I ended up using only 1 can of mixed beans and maybe 2/3 of the stock but other than that stuck to the recipe for the chilli. Had planned on freezing a portion for another day but there was none left as it was so lovely. Didn't bother with the wedges, just cooked frozen ones in the oven for less hassle. Definitely doing this one again!

Hi, do the calories include the wedges or is it for the chilli alone? Thanks.

Yes they do! Our calories always include all items unless they are optional serving suggestions or it is otherwise stated just above the nutritional information.

A couple of pointers: 1. 15-20 minutes isn’t nearly enough to cook those pulses through. Next time I’ll do at least 30 mins and get it cooking before making the wedges. 2. Add salt to the oil when cooking the wedges- it will make them delicious. Another regret! Paprika would be a good addition to the wedge mix too.
