Step 4 Sprinkle over the oregano and chilli powder and stir to mix well. If you are using fresh chilli add at this time Step 5 Return the onions, garlic and peppers to the pan Step 6 Stir through the tomato sauce, tinned tomatoes and barbecue sauce. Step 7 Bring to a gentle simmer on the hob, then add in the kidney beans Step 8 Cook for 45 minutes on a low heat, adding water if the mixture looks too dry Step 9 Taste and adjust seasoning. You can add more chilli at this stage, but of course, you can't take it away - so if you are not sure it is a good idea to use just a teaspoon at the start. Step 10 Meanwhile, if you are making witches fingers, pop the chipolata sausages in a hot oven for about 15 minutes, turning till they are brown all over Step 11 Make the fingernails with small bits of red pepper. You can push them into the sausages by making a small cut with a knife about half a cm from the top. Keep them in a warm oven until ready to serve Step 12 Serve the chilli topped with the witches fingers and with rice or nachos on the side. If you are using whole chilli its a good idea to remove them before serving!
