In a medium bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt with 1/2 the chopped coriander and a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside.

Spice the beans

Reduce the heat to medium and add the Mexican Fiesta spice blend to the beans. SPICY! You may find the spice blend hot! Feel free to add less, depending on your taste. Cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the water to the beans and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the liquid has reduced. Remove the pan from the heat and add a dash more water if the beans look dry.
