Please double check packaging for allergens. The stock cube I have used is free from the top 14 allergens, however most contain celery or gluten.
Don't miss out the cocoa powder! This secret ingredient gives a real depth of flavour to the chilli. 
When serving, garnish with some sour cream, lime wedges and coriander (If you are dairy free you can use this plant based sour cream or Oatly creme fraiche)
