Double the amounts for this one-pot black bean chilli, then freeze the leftovers for busy days. It tastes just as great reheated as it does freshly cooked

Made this last night, delicious! I did add extra smoked paprika and cumin and also added some sweet paprika too for a little more depth of flavour. Will definitely make this regularly.

Cooked this on my Cadac bbq alfresco, very nice and easy. The family loved it, definitely non left over to freeze.
