  • 2 tsp caster sugar

Add the peppers to the pan, then fry for 4 mins more. Tip in the garlic and spices, fry for 1 min, then add the beans, tomatoes and sugar. Simmer for 5 mins until saucy and the meatballs are cooked.

Really enjoyed this chilli, I added a bit extra hot chilli powder it had a good heat (quite spicy). I liked the potatoes but the the chilli was great, easy and tasty. I had some leftovers with couscous and it was lovely. Word of warning it was quite a runny chilli.

So easy and tasty! The sauce is so lovely and rich and has just the right amount of spice to it. The potatoe & chives is a nice change to the usual and compliments it well.

This was a little bit spicy for the kids, and we thought that the potatoes didn't work at all, but otherwise a tasty dish, especially given the time to make it.

Love this meal - quick, easy and so yummy! I added some onion to mine and doubled the amount of beans to my taste. I've made it twice with different kinds of sausages and found that the seasoning might need adjusting dependent on the taste of the sausages.

Really good recipe. The chilli is ok, the potatoes are great and make a nice change from the rice we usually have with chilli. I made the potatoes with low fat creme fraiche as that's what we had in the fridge, but it worked fine.

Wasn't convinced the first time I ate it but had some the second time after I'd frozen the leftovers and I really enjoyed it, weird. I think it was the sausage meat that didn't work for me so next time I will try using mince beef and extra chilli powder. Other than that, a definite winter warmer :o)

Kept the skin on sausages, just cut with scissors into frying pan to brown. Found the dish needed more chilli to suit adult taste but my children loved the milder taste as per recipe. Added grated cheese to the crushed potatoes, not healthy but yummy.

I love this meal, it's quick, easy and really tasty. I have changed it slightly though ..... instead of kidney beans a well known supermarket sells mixed taco beans in a spicy tomato sauce and these go really well with this. I have also made it using stewing steak and with minced beef as well. Try it ... you won't be sorry

Time and time again contributors to comments complain of too thin sauce or too much liquid in a dish, surely it makes sense not to add ALL the liquid (tinned tomatoes etc) at once and if at the end of cooking time the sauce still isn`t thick enough just mix a little cornflour with water or other liquid and add to mixture and just simmer for a couple of minutes....voila! simples!!

Made this twice now - the second time, I used venison sausages and it was delicious. Nice and healthy too!
