Step 1: Heat the oil and fry onion until translucent.
Step 2: add the chopped pepper and fry for another couple of minutes before adding the crushed garlic and frying for a further minute.
Step 3: add your spices and continue to cook for about 1 minute and then add the tins of mixed beans, followed by both tins of tomatoes.
Step 4: bring to the boil then turn down and allow to simmer for approx 25 mins, or longer depending on desired consistency. If it becomes too thick you can always add a splash of water.
Step 5: serve with rice, bread, or it is really delicous with sweet potato weges (see below).
Step 6: put a dollop of sour cream on top if you want
Step 10: for sweet potato wedges simply pre-heat the oven before preparing everything for the chilli. Chop the sweet potato into thick wedges, splash a bit of oil on along with any spices you might fancy (paprika is really good, as is cinnamon for a slightly sweeter taste) and place on a baking tray and put in the oven. They should take around an hour.
