  • spray oil

  • flour tortillas 4 medium

  • black beans 400g tin, rinsed and drained

  • red onion ½, finely diced

  • plum tomatoes 2, ripe

  • avocado 1, diced

  • red pepper ½, diced

  • Little Gem 1, cut into chunky pieces

  • red chilli ½, finely chopped

  • limes 2, 1 zested and 2 juiced

  • extra-virgin olive oil 2 tsp

  • sea salt flakes

  • coriander a bunch, leaves torn

  • cress 1 punnet, snipped

  • Tabasco a few dashes (optional)


Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Turn a large muffin tin upside down and spray lightly with oil. Push a tortilla into the gaps between the muffin holes, to make a bowl shape. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crisp and brown at the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Put the beans, red onion, tomatoes, avocado, red pepper, Little Gem and chilli in a large bowl and toss with the lime juice and zest, olive oil and some sea salt flakes. Tear in the coriander, add the cress and toss lightly again.

Spoon between the tortilla bowls and serve with Tabasco, if you like.
