Top Review by Bunny Erica

This chilli is great. I usually make chilli with TVP mince but find it quite stodgey and heavy so this is a brilliant alternative. I love sweetcorn so always add a small tin ( I try not to buy ones in salt and sugar) to every chilli I make. I also added half a grated carrot to this as I try to fit in carrots where I can as I'm not very keen on them. Thanks for the recipe, it is highly recommended.
