  • 1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 400g can refried beans
  • 3 x 400g cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 x 400g cans black beans, drained and rinsed

Method

  1. Put the onions, celery and chopped peppers with the oil in your largest flameproof casserole dish or heavy-based saucepan, and fry gently over a low heat until soft but not coloured.

  2. Drain both jars of peppers over a bowl to catch the juices. Put a quarter of the peppers into a food processor with the chipotle paste, vinegar, cocoa, dried spices and herbs. Whizz to a purée, then stir into the softened veg and cook for a few mins.

  3. Add the tomatoes and refried beans with 1 can water and the reserved pepper juice. Simmer for 1 hr until thickened, smoky and the tomato chunks have broken down to a smoother sauce.

  4. At this stage you can cool and chill the sauce if making ahead. Otherwise add the kidney and black beans, and the remaining roasted peppers, cut into bite-sized pieces, then reheat. (This makes a large batch, so once the sauce is ready it might be easier to split it between two pans when you add the beans and peppers.) Once bubbling and the beans are hot, season to taste and serve.

The vinegar overpowers the dish. I will try it again without vinegar.

Really delicious veggie chilli. My teenagers thought it was as good as chilli con carne. An unusual mix of herbs and spices that works brilliantly. Definitely a keeper.

I made approx half portion but only a handful of jarred peppers as they are £££. I used only 1 can chopped toms, 1 can kidney beans (and throw in the juice), 1 can borlotti and 1 can chickpeas. Also add in a handful of red lentils and a couple of diced sweet potatoes. Cut the hassle factor and serve with baked potatoes and grated cheese (and Greek yogurt). I put everything into a casserole and put it in the oven all together. Great reheated. Like the Tabasco and cocoa addition. It is great reheated in a small Pyrex dish with a couple of eggs cracked in. Kids love it and husband doesn't know it's vegetarian and about 4/5 a day!

I have halfed this recipe and put one jar of roast peppers in however I have just noticed mine were in olive oil not juice. Is this going to be ok as it is a lot of oil to tip in the mixture

The peppers generally tend to be in a mixture of vinegar, salt and water. We wouldn't suggest adding all the oil in lieu of this. If the mixture is quite thick you could add a splash more water and if you feel it needs a bit more bite then a splash of red wine vinegar too, a pinch of salt and sugar.
