Chilli Beans

This is a bit of an experiment. I will use these in another recipe, which I shall, of course, post here.

3 tbs dried kidney beans
1 large onion
Several cloves garlic, if liked
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 chilli pepper, if you have any
Hot or sweet chilli sauce, to taste

Soak the beans for six hours, drain and rinse. Cover with cold water, bring to the boil and boil hard for at least 10 minutes. Lower the heat and simmer until they are tender. Drain and rinse.

Meanwhile, chop the onion and garlic and either soften in a little olive oil, or cook in the microwave or a few minutes. Transfer to a saucepan and add the tomatoes and chilli, and finally the beans. Bring to the boil and cook gently until most of the liquid has evaporated; stir from time to time and don't let it burn if you can possibly avoid it!
