This Mexican mixed bean chilli is delicious and super easy to make. In this mixed bean chilli I use Mexican flavours which creates a bowl of warm, aromatic and smokey chilli. This recipe is also made using just one pot.

  • Medium Pot


  • Olive oil

  • In a medium sized pot over a medium-low heat sauté the onion and capsicum pepper for 5 minutes, until soften. Add the garlic and sauté for a further 2 minutes. Add cumin and paprika and once you can start to smell the spices stir though your chipotle paste then add your tomatoes, stock, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to the boil, add the beans then turn down the heat and simmer for 40-45 minutes. You may need to add a little water as you go if the chilli becomes too thick.

  • If chipotle paste is not available use another medium heat chilli paste.
  • Serve with either tortilla wraps, tortilla chips, rice or a combination of 2.
