    Love it

  • Claire

    Lovely meal but my partner and I found it quite spicy so used a lot of sour cream!!

  • Barbara Starkey

    Loved it. I added extra veg e.g. Courgette and carrots. Had some left over, it was even better the day after

  • Rorysdad

    Nice flavours but a bit too spicy for the rest of the family. Will make it again but with reduced spices.

  • Amirah

    Very, very spicy! My vegetarian partner found it too spicy & she claims to love really spicy food.

  • Rachel

    Very easy to make and tasty...good thing to make if half the family is vegetarian and half are meat-eaters!!

  • Naomi

    AMAZING :) loved this and will definitely be making it again! I ended up with 6 portions rather than 4 though - the quantity is v generous.

  • Lynda

    Very tasty alternative to standard chilli.

  • Amirah

    Great recipe!!! It's balance between spice and sweet (potato) is great!

  • Lisa R

    My hubby loves his meat, but thought this recipe was flavoursome, and really enjoyed it. It is simple and easy to make, and keeps for a few days in the fridge. Will,definitely become a regular in our house!
