Nothing takes the chill out of a winter evening like a bowl of steaming, spicy Mexican-flavoured lentils. And it's full of other yummy magic foods like capsicums, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes, kidney beans and coriander. Serve it with rice or in burritos, soft-shell tacos and enchiladas.

• Mexican chilli powder is a spice blend of dried chiles, Mexican oregano, cumin, coriander and cloves.
