  1. Peel and finely dice onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Cut the capsicums in half and remove the stalks and seeds then roughly chop.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a big pot on a medium-high, add the chopped vegetables, chilli powder, cumin, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then cook  until softened, stirring.
  3. Drain and add the chickpeas and kidney beans, tip in the tomatoes, breaking them up with the back of a spoon, then pour in 1 tin's worth of water. Add the mince, breaking up any larger bits.
  4. Pick off the coriander leaves and put aside for garnish, then finely chop and add the coriander stalks to the pan, with the balsamic vinegar. Season with another pinch of sea salt and pepper.
  5. Bring the whole mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid cracked 1 hour, or until  thickened and reduced.
  6. Serve with rice or couscous, with some guac and lime on the side for squeezing over. Sprinkle over the reserved coriander.
