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!

Well tasty and decently easy to make. I eat lots and have 3 portions of this for stock. Had it with rice today, gonna try the leftovers in a wrap with some guacamole.

Really easy and tasty midweek supper. Swapped one can of mixed beans for chickpeas which worked just fine. Also used a mixture of potatoes and sweet potatoes for the wedges. Yum.

Made this last night and went down an absolute treat with everyone! One of my cans of beans were kidney beans in a chilli sauce which gave an extra little bit of kick that was perfect, and I also added a can of sweetcorn for some refreshing crunch amongst the beans! Will definitely be making this again as it was delicious!

Excellent option for a week day tea. Really tasty. Can be something a bit special served with some accompaniments like avocado, chips & salsa.

Quick, cheap but full of flavour and comforting. Served brown rice as on health kick.
