Method:

  1. Firstly, chop your garlic and onions.
  2. Next, warm the olive oil in a frying pan and add the onions, cooking until they go translucent and then adding the herbs and spices along with the garlic, cooking down for a minute of two and adding any water to keep things moving if needed.
  3. Now, add the kidney beans, baked beans, black beans, chopped tomatoes, and sweetcorn and bring to the boil mixing well.
  4. When the chilli has come to a boil, turn down the heat to medium and allow to cook for 40-50 minutes, mixing from time to time.
  5. Whilst the bean chilli is cooking, mash your avocado with a fork and add the juice of half a lemon, as well as some salt and pepper and, hey-presto – lazy man’s guac.
  6. After you’ve finished the guac, put it in the fridge and grate your cheese.
  7. When the chilli is finished, serve with/on top of the tortilla chips with cheese, guac and salsa.

Perfect Nachos and Chilli For All!

Notes:

This isn’t a hot-hot chilli because I like my food like I like my life – mild. Add some chilli if you want a hotter dish!

  • If you’re feeling less lazy, you could totally make your own vegan nacho cheese rather than grated cheese; you could even go all out and make your own salsa! Go mental!
  • The salt and pepper, as with all my recipes, needs to be added throughout the cooking process and to taste (never be ashamed to shove a teaspoon in your cooking and taste half way through – cook’s perks!)
  • * & ** Sainsbury’s basic tortilla chips and Sainsbury’s basic salsa are vegan AF and they are mighty good with my bean chilli, and to think they say being vegan is expensive… pffft.
