Kevin Dundon's Cajun Bean & Chicken Chilli is mouth-wateringly good.

Ingredients

Serves 6

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 sweet Ramiro peppers or red peppers, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp. Cajun spices
  • 500g chicken breast, sliced
  • 2 tins cannellini / black eyed beans, drained and rinsed
  • 90g tin sweet corn kernels
  • 1 litre chicken stock , warmed
  • 1 Lime juice and zest
  • 4 tbsp. coriander, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sour cream & Tortillas to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in large saucepan over moderate heat. Add the red onion, peppers and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Next add the cumin, coriander, chilli, dry herbs and Cajun spices and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the pan on a side dish. Then, in the same pan, over medium heat, add the chicken pieces and sauté,  for 5 - 8 minutes, until the meat is cooked through.
  4. Add back the cooked vegetables and pour the beans, sweet corn, chicken stock and simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes. Add the lime juice and zest then check the seasoning.  Season with a little salt and pepper if required.
  5. Ladle into individual bowls and top each serving with a large dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of coriander. Serve with a warmed tortilla.
