Method

  • In a medium-sized frying-pan, melt the butter over moderate heat.
  • When the foam subsides, add the onion, garlic and green pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent but not brown.
  • Stir in the kidney beans, baked beans with the can juice, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and chilli powder and stir well to mix.
  • Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, for a further 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the cheese and cook, stirring constantly, for a further 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the mixture is hot and thick.
