Chilli con peanuts


I was born in an era before nut allergies were popular, the labels on peanut butter jars used to say “children thrive on it”… And we did. I still love peanut butter, and peanuts, to this day and tried a new idea out yesterday… Peanut chilli!

The nuts were soaked and boiled with the beans, I gave the boiling stage extra time because there were butter beans in the mix so the pan was on the hob for about half an hour before being tipped into the slow cooker. Fresh chillies and a good gloop of Encona West Indian Extra Hot chilli sauce were added and the mix left to simmer overnight.

That’s breakfast, dinner and tea sorted for the next couple of days!
