Loved this soup. Filling enough for a midweek lunch. The squeeze of lime is a real plus. Freezes well.

Chilli bean soup - Scrums!!!!! So easy and quick to make, I'd eat again right now. I used hot chilli rather than mild to get a bit of heat into it to warm us from inside out here in France, with snow due today !!! 8 out of 10 and repeating as soon as I can
