Method

1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, then add onion and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and chilli powder and cook for 1 minute. Stir in beans, corn and tomatoes. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 7-10 minutes or until thick. Stir in coriander.
