    A good, simple chilli that doesn't taste too heavy. Chickpeas are a great addition instead of the more commonly used kidney beans.

    I made this the day before: tasted right after cooking and then the next day: predictably it was much better the next day after flavours had melded for 24 hours. It was a little bit on the hot side for younger family members, but maybe due to the heat of my chilli powder. Overall a nice, easy recipe but doesn't beat my favourite ever chilli recipe, which is a Heston Blumenthal one from a Waitrose magazine pullout.

    My friends kids love this recipe. It's also excellent served on corn chips.

    Reliable recipe. Tastes even better as leftovers.
