Fresh Tomato, Red Bell Pepper and Black Bean Chili

If you like more heat the add in some dried chili flakes. This is best if prepared a day ahead and chilled, just rewarm before serving. Simmering times are only a guideline you can really simmer this for as long as you desire! Adjust all spices to taste. You can use canned plum tomatoes, chopped in place of the fresh tomatoes
