Instructions

  1. Mist a pan with the cooking spray and add the onion. Fry, stirring, over a medium heat for 5 mins or until softened, then add the garlic and chilli. Fry, stirring, for 5 mins, then add the mince. Fry, stirring, for a further 5 mins or until browned.
  2. Stir in the sauce, a splash of water and the kidney beans. Simmer over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 25 mins.
  3. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4/180°C/fan 160°C. Halve the peppers lengthways, scoop out the seeds and core and place in an ovenproof dish. Stir the coriander into the chilli, then divide the chilli between the peppers.
