Slow Cooker Lentil & Bean Chilli

There is nothing more I love than a steamy bowl of spicy chilli on a cold Winters night and I think the best chillis are slow cooked allowing the development of strong flavours. But if you’re short on time, you can make this recipe using a pressure cooker (20 minutes on high pressure). The flavours won’t be as intense but will develop in time.
I tend to make a double batch of this recipe and store in portions in the freezer.
