  • 1 tbs sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs ground coriander

Method

  1. Heat oil in a large frypan and fry onion, garlic and mince for about 5 minutes, till onions are clear and meat is browned.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid off, stirring occasionally

Serving suggestion:
Spoon the Mexican Mince onto a slice of wholemeal or multigrain bread and top with a little grated reduced-fat cheese and another slice of bread. Cook in a sandwich press or the oven until the cheese is melted and bread is crunchy.
