Recipes BLACK BEAN VEGGIE CHILLI WITH CHEESY NACHOS
BLACK BEAN VEGGIE CHILLI WITH CHEESY NACHOS
We’re celebrating all things veggie this month, giving some of our favourite winter comfort dishes a vegetarian makeover. Forget about chilli con carne and rather tuck into this chilli con veggie alternative! It really hits the spot, especially when topped with nachos with oozy melted cheese.
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- 1 extra large onion, finely diced
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 large red peppers, finely diced
- 2 large yellow peppers, finely diced
- 3 plump cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 2 tsp Cape Herb & Spice SMOKED PAPRIKA
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 2 Tbsp Cape Herb & Spice PORTUGUESE PERI PERI
- 2 large ripe red tomatoes, diced
- TO SERVE
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- Extra nachos
- 2 x 400g tins black beans, drained and rinsed in a colander
- Sour cream
- 8 sprigs coriander (stalks included), chopped
- Spring onion, finely sliced
- 1 cup grated white cheddar cheese
- Coriander leaves
- large pack of nachos
- Pickled jalapeno slices
- METHOD -
Fry the onion in olive oil for five minutes. Then add the red and yellow peppers and fry for a further 10 minutes. Add the garlic and all the spices and fry for two minutes. Add the tomato paste and chopped tomatoes. Place lid on and cook over low heat for 20 minutes. (If you use a thick-base saucepan and the heat is low enough, the tomatoes and peppers provide all the moisture this dish needs, so do not add water.)
Next, stir in the black beans and the coriander. Place veggies in an ovenproof shallow dish and top with half a pack of nachos. Sprinkle over cheese and place in a 150˚ oven for about ten minutes until the cheese has melted. Sprinkle over spring onion, coriander and jalapeno. Serve with extra nachos and sour cream on the side for some serious dunking action!
