“So simple, but so tasty this one-pot chicken and bean chili is packed with cilantro and flavoured with lime. To freeze: Put in a freezerproof container, cool and freeze for up to three months. Thaw overnight at cool room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350F. Bring the chili to the boil on the hob, then cover and reheat in the oven for 20min or until piping hot. This is great served in warm tortillas, with some grated mature Cheddar, guacamole, green chilis and soured cream. Put it all on the table and let everyone help themselves. Freeze a packet of tortillas alongside the chili, so you'll have them to hand, too.”
