Recipe Notes

Passata
This pack size sounds random but it's the size of most of the large glass jars. If you are using cartons, you can use slightly more if you have it rather than throw it away!

Black Beans
You can substitute with any other cooked, canned, drained beans for example, kidney beans.

Onion
I use frozen pre peeled and chopped but you can use fresh if you prefer.

Chilli Powder
I do suggest using just a little for warmth but if you are worried about feeding this to children who hate spice, you could leave it out and add some chilli sauce to individual portions for the adults. Alternatively, of course you can use more if you like spice šŸŒ¶

Sweetcorn
Tinned sweet corn that has been drained is fine. You can also use frozen if you prefer but defrost first. I find the tin sizes vary depending on store, if your tin is slightly bigger or smaller don't worry.

Cheese
I use a mixture of grated Mozzarella and redĀ Leicester as I like the 'pull' and the colour, but use whatever you have.
