    Loved this recipe. Cooked in my slow cooker and only added half the recommended quantity of stock. Easy and tasty.

    DELICIOUS. I made a few changes. Used fresh chillis instead of chilli powder. As a few reviews said it was too watery, I only used half a litre of stock and for me it was a perfect consistency. I Also don’t have a slow cooker, so made on hob. Ii will definitely be making again. Went great with Naan Bread

    This recipe is truly delicious, and really it mimics minced meat. If you have access, mince up a rehydrated ancho chili or any other mexican hot pepper, and transform this into pure miracle. The flavours intensify over a few days - so plan to eat it after 2 or 3 days! Would be great in a fajita shell!

    Delicious. On my 4th repeat. Don't miss the meat: very hearty and flavorful. BUT, Felt it was too spicy, so I cut out all the spices except the cumin. I drained the beans (notice some complain it's watery. Consistency was perfect for me). Also doubled the onion (so one full onion) and added 1/4 cup or more of fresh coriander. I felt the flavors were perfect this way, but to each his own.

    Dreadful recipe that turns out either watery or stoggy

    It turned out fine for a vegetarian meal as we are not vegetarian. I would like to make it again.

    Loved it. I added just a little bit more of paprika and chili powder just at because I prefer it spicy. Topped it off with some almond “mozzarella like” shreds and avocado. Super yummy!

    Great! Slightly too watery, I made the Dutch oven (not slow cooker) quicker option and it turned out more soupy than expected. Still tasted great if you minus adding the spices/herbs which I did because I don’t like things too spicy.

    Very tasty and wholesome - will make again! Left out paprika because I didn’t have it, but I think I’ll include it next time

    Really tasty chilli, will make again for sure. I used smoked paprika which added such a fantastic flavour. I did not use ANY chilli powder as this was for a family meal. we scooped it up with flat breads.
