How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F, Gas 4).
- Put the squash in a roasting pan with the olive oil, onion, garlic, peppers, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper.
- Roast for about 25 minutes until cooked through and the squash begins to blacken on its edges, checking frequently as oven temperatures vary. Remove the thyme stalks and squeeze out the garlic flesh and discard the skins.
- Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, mix the tomatoes, chickpeas, kidney beans, vegetable stock and chipotle paste, chopped coriander stalks and cook for 30 minutes with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
- Now is a good time to prepare the rice and guacamole.
- Combine the roasted vegetables with the tomato sauce and mix well. Keep warm until ready to serve.
- Just before serving, stir through coriander leaves and serve with rice.
- Top with guacamole and Gran Luchito Fire Roasted Serranos.
- Enjoy this easy vegan chilli con carne recipe.
