Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water and the salt, stir, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, roughly chop the tomato. Thinly slice the spring onion. Drain the sweetcorn. Drain and rinse the black beans (see ingredients). Grate the zucchini.
In a small bowl, combine the tomato, spring onion, sweetcorn, white wine vinegar and a good drizzle of olive oil. Season to taste and stir to combine.
When the rice has 10 minutes cook time remaining, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium frying pan over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 4-5 minutes. Add a drizzle of olive oil, the Tex-Mex spice blend, tomato paste and the remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium. Add the zucchini, black beans, mild chipotle sauce and water (for the sauce) and stir to combine. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes. Season to taste.
Divide the garlic rice and chipotle beef and black bean chilli between bowls. Top with the corn salsa, sour cream and the shredded Cheddar cheese.
