For The Guacamole:

  • 2 avocados,  peeled, mashed
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • ¼ jalapeño pepper, finely sliced
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • A handful of coriander, chopped

For The Salsa:

  • 1 red pepper, diced

  • 400g (14oz) tin of red kidney beans
  • A pinch of cumin
  • 1 red onion,  peeled, chopped

  5. For the fried beans, heat the oil in a pan and fry the garlic. Add the cumin, lime juice, onion, coriander and beans and heat for a few minutes. Serve in a small bowl
  6. For the salsa, mix all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Fill the tortillas with guacamole, beans and salsa and serve.
