Method

Heat the oil in a deep, lidded, frying pan over a high heat. Add the onion and pepper and fry for 3–4 minutes. Add the garlic and spices and fry for 10 seconds.

Stir in the beans, chopped tomatoes, passata, stock, purée and mango chutney. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bring up to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for about 40 minutes.

Check the seasoning and stir in the sweetcorn and coriander.

Serve the chilli hot with rice, some grated cheese, soured cream and guacamole (see page 37 of Mary Makes It Easy), if liked.

Mary’s Tips: Chilli can be made up to 8 hours ahead and reheated. Not suitable for freezing.
