Black Bean Chilli


Black Bean Chilli
We are real chilli fiends in this house, even 10-month old Rory loves a good bowlful of hot chilli and rice (I do make his a bit milder by adding creme fraiche!). Thing is, I always make chilli with beef mince and I always use the same old (but very good nevertheless) recipe. Fancying a bit of change, I devised this smokey vegetarian chilli using black beans and kidney beans as the base.

It freezes really well, so I tend to make up a big batch at the weekend and freeze in individual portions, ready to pull out of the freezer for a tasty mid-week meal. Rice is the obvious partner, but cornbread would also be good.

  1. Like you, I always used to make chilli with beef mince and kidney beans, but recently found a brilliant recipe using cubed lamb, beer and black beans. I don't think my family would tolerate a vegetarian version, however good it looked!

  5. Chilli is one of my favourite dishes, especially in the winter. This recipe loks really good, I particularly like the idea of adding smoked paprika, I'm sure that gives it a wonderful flavour.
