Smoked Bean Chilli

The smoked paprika and liquid smoke add a wonderful depth to this chilli. It's ok to leave out the liquid smoke if you can't find any, but it really is worth using smoked paprika.


  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 stock cube
  • 350ml boiling water
  • 1 tin red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 4 drops liquid smoke (about 1/2 a tsp)


  1. Fry the onion in the sunflower oil in a large saucepan until soft.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Serve with tortilla bread or rice. Fresh coriander works well as a garnish.
Serves 2.
