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

Yummy. Used a mixture of lentils and mixed beans and the whole family loved it. Even tastes delicious heated up for lunch the next day! Lovely recipe.

Anybody know if the calories include the wedges and sour cream to serve, or if it's the chilli alone?

Mmmm lovely, was really surprised at the difference the chocolate at the end made! Will definitely be making this again.

Made this for a veggie friend when we had a chilli night. Went down a treat with the veggie and meat eaters. So tasty I will make again for sure. Added a bit of extra chilli to ensure lots of heat

Mmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmmmmmm! I made half the quantity to feed just myself, intending to have it over 2 nights but it was so delicious I ate all in one sitting! :-)

This was nice but I made them with sweet potato chips instead of white potatoes - from another recipe on this site where they are tossed in olive oil and light soy sauce before roasting. The following day I had leftovers with jacket potato and grated cheese.

really lovely and filling dish, the chocolate added a real depth of flavour, I would say if you like your chilli hot maybe add some more of the spice mix or maybe some fresh chilli.

Really good and really easy - I don't use the chocolate but this is a regular now!

I must have cooked this 100 times! It's fantastic for a really-quick, cheap, midweek supper. As I'm not vegetarian, I use beef stock and leave out the chocolate.
