A good chilli is the perfect summer food! I love the depth of flavour in this quick to cook, no fuss family meal.
Charring your aubergine on over hot coals or over a gas flame will ensure you create a lovely smoky flavour but if you can’t be bothered just dice the aubergine and simply add with the rest of the veggies.
The decadent addition of a piece of chocolate adds a bit of richness but you can omit.
Seasonal Swaps: a chilli is the perfect way to ‘clear-the-fridge’ from any veggies, simply cut into similar size and add as the base. You can use any two cans of beans.
Getting Ahead: this dish is the perfect make-ahead dish, you can cook this 2-3 days in advance.
Freezer friendly too.
