• Preheat oven to 200°/180°C fan-forced. • Finely chop brown onion, carrot and garlic. • Drain and rinse black beans. Drain the sweetcorn.


• In a deep frying pan or large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 2-3 minutes. Add onion, carrot and corn and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-7 minutes. • SPICY! You may find the spice blend hot. Add less if you're sensitive to heat. Add Mexican Fiesta spice blend and garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.


• Add diced tomatoes with garlic & onion, black beans, vegetable stock powder, the brown sugar and the hot water (2 tbs for 2 people / 1/4 cup for 4 people). Stir to combine. • Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until slightly thickened, 10-15 minutes. • Stir in the butter. Season with salt and pepper.

TIP: Drain the oil from the pan at the start of this step for best results!

TIP: Butter helps balance the acidity of the tomatoes.


• While the chilli is simmering, cut mini flour tortillas into wedges. • Place chips on a lined oven tray. Drizzle (or spray) with olive oil. Season, then arrange in a single layer. • When the chilli has 10 minutes remaining, bake the chips until golden, 6-8 minutes.

TIP: If your oven tray is getting crowded, spread the chips out over two oven trays.


• Meanwhile, roughly chop coriander leaves.


• Divide Mexican bean and veggie chilli between bowls. • Sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese and coriander. • Top with a dollop of light sour cream. Serve with baked tortilla chips. Enjoy!
