Shall I persevere with cooking my chilli?

Making a chilli and on auto pilot just poured in a can of what I thought was kidney beans in chilli sauce but on rechecking was kidney beans in salted water. Shall I:

1. Up the spices and persevere?

2. Bin it and order in a takeaway for tonight instead?

Tastes a bit salty atm

Stick a few peeled potatoes in while it cooks and they may take up some of the salt. Remove before they go mushy

Or make up another batch without salt and mix them together

Peeling potatoes as I type, not good enough to make a second batch. Thank you.

I've done this before, in the end I added more liquid tomatoes etc and added the rice I planned to serve it with to cook in the chilli. It was lovely and I do it like this regularly now for a change.

Good idea lonelynow. I definitely won't need to season it!
