3 Bean Chilli

Tonight, I was cooking under pressure, hubby was hungry and needed to be ready for his plans by 7:00pm. I was blogging, so he went and threw some sausages and chips in the oven. We always eat together if we're home and I had 20 minutes to think/create, prepare and cook something yummy for myself. My tinned cupboard was raided and I concocted 3 bean chilli, which hubby says looks like a cowboys stew. Whatever it looks like it was very tasty, quick and good for you.

1 red onion
1 white onion
1 clove of garlic
450g mushrooms
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tin black eyed beans
1 tin organic red kidney beans
½ tin baked beans
1 small tin of spicy refried beans
3 slices of jarred jalapeno's
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp chilli powder
½ tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the onions into smallish pieces and fry in a little olive oil until translucent  add the finely chopped garlic and fry for a couple more minutes.
Quarter the mushrooms and add to the pan and fry for a further 5 minutes or until they start to release their juices.
Add the spices and stir in the chopped tomatoes.
Wash the beans under cold running water and drain, then add to the pan and stir to combine.
Finely dice the 3 slices of jarred jalapeno's and add to the pan, bring to a boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve with rice, mixed through pasta, over a jacket potato, or simply on its own. If you're feeling naughty it also goes very well with chips!
