Directions

10 mins to prep

10 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Combine all the taco seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until softened and slightly translucent. Add the taco seasoning mix and stir for about 30 seconds, until all the aromas are released. Add the beans and stir to coat with the spice mix, then stir in the tomato and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until slightly thickened.

  3. Step 3

    To serve, arrange the corn chips on a plate, then scatter with the cheese, if using. Top with the hot bean mix, sprinkle with the corn kernels and top it off with a generous spoonful of guacamole.

  4. Step 4

    Garnish with coriander, and squeeze the other half of lime over the top. Serve with a small bowl of jalapeños for those who like a bit of a kick.

Hot tip!

*If you want to use a homemade cheese, try our stretchy, gooey, melty mozzarella! Before adding the other toppings, pop the cheese-scattered chips in the oven at 180°C for 5-10 minutes, keeping an eye on them to make sure the chips don't burn. **If you’re short on spices (or time), you can use a packet of premixed taco seasoning from the supermarket.
