Mixed Bean Chilli

This recipe is a fantastic, versatile dish. Can fill wraps with it,top tacos, baked potatos or blitz it to make a bean dip. The recipe calles for 4 types of beans, half a can of each, I like to use the rest of the cans to make a mixed bean salad, or you could just use 2 full cans of two types of beans if you'd like.

Mixed Bean Chilli
Serves 5
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tbsp chilli powder
1/2 tbsp cumin
400g chopped tomatoes, canned
1 tbsp tomato puree
88g pinto beans (1/2 a morrisons can)
88g cannellini beans (1/2 a morrisons can)
88g borlotti beans (1/2 a morrisons can)
88g blackeye beans(1/2 a morrisons can)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 chicken stock cube
300ml water
1/4 red pepper
1/4 green pepper
6 mushrooms

Fry the oil with chilli, crushed garlic, salt and cumin.
Add the onion and soften.
Add the tomato puree, mushrooms and peppers.
Put lid on and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the water, stock cube and chopped tomotoes
Add all the beans.
The dish needs to simmer for at least 30 minutes to thicken up, keep stirring it until the suace is MUCH thicker,it can take about an hour. If you need it in a hurry, blast one serving in the microwave for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
