Hi guys, need abit of input please. Iv always made my own chilli sauces with tinned tomatoe & a dash of this & that, but today I had the 5 bean chilli at weatherspoons for lunch and it was devine, but it was a totaly different tast to anything iv ever created at home & very moorish. I know theres loads of chilli seasonings on the market but have avoided them becouse of syns.

Can anyone tell me what you use for that authentic taste & how many syns it has please?

I liked using died mexican chillies - ancho chillies and chipotle give things a great flavour. Also "liquid smoke" seasoning adds a great depth to anything with a tomato sauce, especially with chilli.

It is literally liquid smoke - I am sure its a very complicated process but what they basically do is pass smoke through water which causes an "essence of smoke" flavour. Its very powerful and you don't need much but it is delicious. You can find it on ebay for a couple of pound. And best of all the "hot headz" and "colgin" brands have zero calories so syn-free flavouring!

mmm, that sounds like it would give a chilli a nice kick
