Bunch of Coriander – £0.70
1 Lime – £0.30
2 Tbsp. Sweet Chilli sauce – £0.30
Cumin – £0.85
Paprika – £0.85
Garlic – £0.30
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Drizzle the sweet potatoes in olive oil and a pinch of salt. Bake them for 50 minutes or until soft until soft.
Tip: To speed things up you can spike the potatoes with a fork a few times and microwave on a plate. Once they are soft (about 10-12 minutes) pop in the oven to crisp off!
While the potatoes are in oven, sort the guac! Scoop flesh out of two avocados. Add to bowl. Add a handful of chopped coriander, the juice of a lime, and the Chilli sauce. This is the cheat’s way of making amazing guacamole!
Chilli time! Dice the peppers.
In a pan, add a splash of olive oil. Add 2 cloves of chopped garlic, 2 teaspoons of cumin, and 2 teaspoons of paprika. Once the garlic has softened (1 minute) add the peppers.
Fry until soft, on a medium to low heat. Add a bit of water if it starts catching on the pan. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
Once softened, add your mice and cook through.
Then add the beans.
Tip: Make sure you taste your chilli once the mince is cooked. You may want to add more spices to boost the flavour. Use your chef’s instinct!
Remove your sweet potatoes from the oven. Top with the yummy chilli, your guacamole, a little cheese and some more coriander. ENJOY!
