Just that I'm afraid...added too much chilli powder. How can I save it please?

Or cheese and mayo.

Make another one with no chilli at all in, mix up together, and freeze the excess.

Or creme freche or yoghurt

Add a pinch of sugar along with all of pp suggestions

Add a few squares of very dark chocolate, or a spoon of dark brown sugar don't over do it though
Add more tomatoe puree.
Remove as much of the sauce as possible ( freeze for next time ) and add more tinned or fresh tomatoes.

Add more passata and more mixed beans.

Adding a tin or two of baked beans or some red lentils and veg stock might be a quick fix if you don't have time to make another non-spiced version and double up. Yes, and serve with soured cream/yoghurt, grated cheese and plenty of rice!

Thanks all. Have added another carton of passata and a tin of cannelini beans. Giving it another good simmer then will test. Thanks again

and stir in a pot of yoghurt at the end. It'll be fine, OP.
