My fav thing to make are one pot wonders – saves on the washing up and there is something really satisfying about bunging all ingredients uncooked together in one place. Shove it in the oven and then end up with a really yummy tasting dish 

We eat loads of beans and the kids love them. I always find most things you make with pulses end up tasting delicious.  I never buy dried beans, I know they are probably cheaper and it’s more environmentally friendly but I use cans for convenience and one pot meals tend to be at the end of the week when I have run out of shopping!

You could make this in the slow cooker too – in around 3 hours on high I reckon.

I love eating chilli with

Crème fraîche or sour cream – the heat against the coolness of the dairy.  Yummmy!

2 cans black beans 

2 cans kidney beans 

2 cans chopped tomatoes

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

1 tablespoon bouillon 

1 heaped tablespoon cocoa powder

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

Grab yourself a large cast iron pot 

Pour olive oil in the pot and fry off the onions and garlic
