Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the green pepper and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
Increase heat to medium-high heat and stir in the minced crocodile. Cook and stir until the meat is crumbly, and evenly browned. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the passata, tomato juice, black beans, kidney beans and chipotle paste. Season with chilli powder, cumin, cinnamon, celery salt, ground ginger, salt and pepper.
Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 2 to 3 hours, stirring in water if the chilli becomes too thick. Serve with hot sauce.
