This is an excellent veggie chilli! Must admit I added extra cumin, as the cajun spice mix wasn't quite tasty enough. Loved it though. The chocolate really makes it.

Made wedges and chilli, have never bothered with wedges before opting for rice, but were so easy to make and tasted rly gd. Didnt have cajun seasoning so added 1tsp each of paprika, cumin and coriander plus a pinch of oregano and chilli powder. Worked rly well!

Fantastic! Didn't do the wedges but the chilli was lovely. We added garlic which worked really well.

Only made the potato wedges from this recipe but they were great. Having tried to make wedges in the past they have never turned out as nice as these ones!
