INGREDIENTS (serves 8)


Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion, garlic and celery until soft. Add the mushrooms and chillies and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomato purée and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. When the mushrooms are soft, add the cocoa powder (if using) and stock and bring to the boil.

A pan with vegetables and a spoon on a colorful table, ready to be munched.

Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, then add the beans and cook for a further 10-12 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced and the beans are all heated through. To serve, place 2-3 tablespoons of the bean chilli in each taco shell. Top with the grated cheese, chopped coriander (if using), and a spoon of yoghurt and put on plates.
