Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Stir to combine, then bring to the boil and simmer until the chilli has reduced and thickened, 4-5 mins.
While the chilli simmers, zest and cut the lime into wedges. Trim the baby gem, halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways.
Squeeze some lime juice into a small bowl and add a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar (if you have any). Mix together.

When everything's ready, taste the chilli and add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve with any remaining lime wedges for squeezing over.
