White Bean Chilli

This one is based on a recipe by Simon Rimmer. It's well worth a try as you probably haven't had it before...make it hotter if you like but the way i've described below does have quite a kick.

You need:

2 Onions - finely chopped
1 bottle Sol or Corona Beer
3 Garlic Cloves - crushed
2 Red Peppers - finely chopped
1 Fresh Green Chilli - de-seeded and finely chopped
1/2 jar Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Discovery ones are fine) - finely chopped
1 teaspoon Dried Chilli Flakes
1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika
1 tablespoon Ground Cumin
400ml Vegetable Stock
Bunch Fresh Coriander
50ml White Wine Vinegar
400g can Cannellini Beans - drained
400g can Butter Beans - drained
1 tablespoon Dried Italian Seasoning
250g Cheddar - grated

Place the Beer, Onions, Garlic, Red Peppers, Fresh Chilli, Chopped Jalapenos, Chilli Flakes, Cumin and Stock into a large pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes

In a food processor, blitz the Coriander together with the Wine Vinegar and a large pinch of salt to make a thin paste. Add this paste along with the Beans, the Italian Seasoning and the Paprika to the spiced stock...simmer for 25 minutes

Serve and sprinkle with the Cheddar. This is good served in bowls with Flour Tortillas or with Tortilla Chips
