Let’s pretend that I had read the instructions properly for the February ‘We should Cocoa’, if I had, then I would have made this recipe with quorn mince or some other suitable vegetarian alternative. However, sadly that is simply not the case, so if I am disqualified for using beef mince, so be it!
3. Add salt to taste, then add the kidney beans and the four squares of chocolate and let them melt into the mixture.
4. Just before serving add some fresh chopped coriander and stir through.
Serve with rice, I used brown basmati rice, topping the chilli with sour cream or yogurt, some chopped spring onions and chopped coriander.
I enjoyed this chilli, the chocolate adds a depth of flavour, ours was pretty hot as I left the seeds in the chillis, I always find fresh chillis quite difficult to judge and either end up with not enough or too much heat!
