This is a very simple and quick satisfying dinner & a healthy nutritious one too. The added crispy onions on top just give it a lovely little crunch. I used Corn Tacos for extra flavour.

150g sweetcorn (fresh or frozen)

1 red pepper, diced

1 tsp dried chilli flakes or chilli powder

1 tbsp cumin

1/2 tsp onion granules

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Sour cream

Chopped Coriander

100g baby spinach

1 Lime

6 Corn Tacos

50g grated cheese (any of your choice)

4 tbsp crispy onions (for recipe click here)

 

  1. Heat a little oil in a fry pan on medium to high heat
  2. Add in the pepper and sweetcorn and cook for about 5 minutes
  3. Add in the black beans, chilli, garlic, onion granules, cumin and pinch of salt, mix through and cook for about 5 minutes
  4. Add in the baby spinach and 2 tbsp water, cover and let spinach wilt for about a minute of 2. Mix through. Finished with 2 tbsp coriander and juice from 1 lime.
  5. To serve, heat up the corn tacos under a grill (or tortillas if using). 2 tbsp of bean mix, top with sour cream, cheese and crispy onions. Yummy!

  1. Combine flour, salt and paprika in a bowl.
  2. Slice the onion very thinly.
  3. Heat up a little oil in a fry pan to medium to high heat
  4. Coat the onions slices in the flour mixture, shake of excess and drop into the oil. Cook until browned and crispy.
  5. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.
