Try journalist Kemi Bamgbose’ fiery jollof beans, made with scotch bonnet chilli for extra heat. It’s surprisingly thrifty to make too.
Turn up the heat even more with chilli-marinated chicken kebabs.

Traditionally this recipe is made with dried crayfish, but as this is hard to find (unless you live near an African or Caribbean shop), non-vegans could add a pack of chopped smoked mackerel fillets at the end of the cooking time and heat through.
To save time you could use a 400g tin black-eyed beans. Drain and rinse under cold water, then start from step 3.
Make the beans up to 3 days ahead and keep covered in the fridge. Reheat until piping hot throughout to serve.
