Fajita casserole crush


2 soft tortillas, cut into triangles
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 onion, roughly sliced
1 red pepper, roughly sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
Small handful of green beans
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp ground cumin
1 tsp yeast extract
400g can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
300g passata
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avocado, finely chopped
1 small red onion, finely sliced
1 small green chilli, finely sliced
Juice of 1 unwaxed lime
Generous handful of fresh coriander, roughly torn
Generous pinch of smoked sea salt


Preheat the oven to 200C.

Arrange the tortilla triangles on a baking tray and drizzle with the olive oil. Bake for 8–10 minutes until golden.

In the meantime, heat the sunflower oil in a large stove-to-table casserole dish over a medium–high heat and cook the onion and red and yellow peppers for 2–3 minutes until they begin to soften, then add the green beans, chilli powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder and cumin, and cook for a further minute.

Add the yeast extract, kidney beans and passata, and bubble for 10 minutes until the vegetables have softened.

Remove from the heat and scatter over the cherry tomatoes, avocado, onion and green chilli. Squeeze over the lime juice.

Gently scatter with the baked tortilla chips and coriander, and season with smoked sea salt to taste.
