Hi, I am about to try this recipe, but cant see anywhere about adding any liquid for the chilli to cook in. Can some one help pleaseeeeeeeee. - 04 Nov 2012


Used different ingredients. I used 2 tins of chopped tomatoes instead of passata, and replaced one of the tins of kidney beans for baked beans! - 22 Feb 2011


Hiya rudiedog6, drain one tin of the kidney beans only. The other tin of kidney beans and the tin of cannellini beans go in with liquid and all. Hope this helps! - 14 Feb 2012
