If someone tells you that a chilli is something that takes hours to knock together, then they’ve clearly never made our super speedy Mexican chilli. Bursting with more flavour than you can shake a stick at, here’s a twenty minute dish that defies time and delivers on taste. Pile the chilli over bowls of rice and top with a generous dollop of zesty soured cream and fresh, peppery coriander. Delicious!

Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
