Great, simple recipe! I used 3 tins of beans (2 mixed, 1 kidney) as I wanted to make sure it was enough for 4 generous servings. I also omitted the stock, just added a stock cube, as it was already quite watery. The wedges are so much simpler to make than chips, so will definitely make them again in the future! Tossed them in sweet BBQ spice before popping in the oven.

For me it was nice, but it was a bit too ‘beany’ still as I think it needed quite a bit longer to cook so the beans were a little softer and it made the chilli a bit more saucy.

Great meat free Monday recipe. After reading other reviews, I used borlotti beans and mixed spices tacos beans - but would use whatever available in future. No cajan spice so chopped a red chilli. Didnt add extra stock, just a veg stock pot and water to rinse out the cans -: we prefer less liqiuid. Absolutely delicious from my other half - and I agree. Served with baked potato and creme fraiche.

My son chose this recipe. He's really fussy!! He loved the wedges and actually ate some of the pulses but left the rest. That's massive progress though. I really enjoyed it and so did my other children. Would defo change it up a bit now I've got an idea of the taste.

I used red pepper and added wraps for serving this tasty chilli. Black eyed beans and chick peas were what I had and they were a good combo.

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.

Great recipe, didn't have dark chocolate so dissolved some cocoa into water and added that.

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.
