    Used different ingredients. This recipe was fantastic, though I added my own touches... Used a can of mild chilli beans besides the kidneys, and mashed half of each can. Added a 125g can of mild green chillies. Also diced half a green capsicumand did not cook it or the onion until all the ingredients were mixed. Cut the water in half to make it thicker and heartier, and added a dash of cinnamon. We are definitely saving this recipe - it is the best we've tried so far! Edit: I've made this a second time now, this time in the slow-cooker. We did not change anything except to add a little more water. We left it on low for the day (8 hrs).  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. My wife just loved it... To avoid it being too soupy I added a can of chilli beans in addition to the kidney beans. To give it a more unique flavour I added: 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon cinammon 2 seeded and chopped jalapenos 1 seeded and chopped green capsicum. I also suggest using red onion instead of a white onion. Enjoy!!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. very good flavour...Will make again and again and again! used black beans instead of kidney, only because I prefer the presentation of black beans.  -  29 Sep 2008
