We made this vegetable chilli as we had loads of baked beans needing to be used up. This recipe mainly consists on baked beans and tomatoes, however, it did not taste like baked beans due to the spices and herbs used. It tasted great! We served this with rice. As a treat we had oranges for dessert, we brought these from a lady when filming at a local bank. Oranges are really green in Kenya!
