Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes Serves: 4
For the chilli
A drizzle of natural avocado cooking oil (we love Olivado)
2 packets beef, beetroot and lentil sausages (we love Hellers)
1 red onion – diced
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 can black beans (we love Chantal Organics)
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 tsp clover honey (we love Airborne)
1 packet tortillas (we love Giannis)
A handful grated cheddar cheese (we love Mainland)
1 red chilli – finely chopped
For the toppings
4 tbsp sour cream (we love Anchor)
1 red chilli – thinly sliced
A handful coriander (we love Superb Herb)
1 New Zealand avocado – sliced (we love NZ Avocado)
In a heavy based saucepan over a medium heat, fry off the red onion, chilli and garlic until translucent.
Add the cumin and smoked paprika and fry off for 2 minutes.
Remove the skins from the sausages and fry off the meat with the onion spice mixture until it’s broken down into mince and looks lovely and golden.
Add the cans of chopped tomatoes and beans. Season with a teaspoon of honey. Stir to combine and place a lid on the saucepan. Turn down to a low heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Turn oven to 180C. Cut the tortillas into “corn chip” triangles and evenly spread flat on a baking tray. Drizzle with avocado oil and the cheddar cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy and golden.
Transfer the cheesy golden tortilla chips into a serving dish. Top with chilli mixture, sour cream, green chilli slices, coriander, avocado slices and limes.
