2 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp chipotle paste

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR 2:

STEP 1:

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C(fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4. Cut each tortilla in half, lay them on a baking tray, drizzle with 1-2 tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle on 1 tsp (2 tsp) of pepper and salt to taste. Put in the oven for 15 min, or until crispy.

STEP 2:

Meanwhile, crush the garlic with the side of a knife, peel it and chop finely. Remove the stem(s) of the pepper(s), deseed and slice finely (approx. 1cm thick).

STEP 3:

Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to a large pan on a medium-high heat. Add the garlic and pepper and 1 tbsp of sugar and salt to taste. Cook for 3 min, then add the tomato paste and chipotle paste. Cook the paste for another min or until it releases aromas, stirring continuously.

STEP 4:

Drain and rinse the cannellini and kidney beans under the tap. Add them to the pan and cook for 2 min, or until the liquid has evaporated. Add 250ml of water and cook for 5 min, or until half of the liquid has evaporated.

STEP 5:

Check the tortilla in the oven to make sure they do not catch. Grate the cheddar. Chop the spring onion(s) finely, discarding the root end(s).

STEP 6:

Mash the beans with a masher (or fork) to break them up slightly. Cook for 2 min, or until all the liquid has evaporated. Season to your taste with salt and pepper.

STEP 7:

Remove the tortilla from the oven, they should be crisp and slightly coloured.

STEP 8:

Divide the beans between bowls, top with a good dollop of sour cream, grated cheese and spring onion. Serve the tortilla crisps alongside the beans. Enjoy!
