Its not anything like other beans that I have tasted before. It has distinct sharp taste with a mild pungent note. The seasoning blends well with these beans and makes the chilli incredibly delicious.
200g uncooked bean (cook according to packet instruction) or 400g (drained weight) prepacked cooked bean
250g canned chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 clove garlic, grated
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp red wine
1/2 tsp lemon juice (optional)

Heat the oil in a casserole pan.
Add the onion, garlic and let it sweat for few minutes.
Add the tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes under moderate heat.
Add the oregano, cayenne pepper and cook for 1 minute.
Add the beans, followed by red wine and lemon juice.
Cover the casserole and simmer for an hour.

Serve the chilli with cheese shavings. It goes wonderfully well with jacket potato or by itself. Its very delicious and always make me think “Why is the chilli always gone!!!”
