Ingredients

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 250 g lean beef mince
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 400 g can no-added-salt red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 400 g can no-added-salt diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbs sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs ground coriander
  • 1 tbs chilli flake, optional
  • See serving suggestion

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:
Use scissors to cut up a tortilla or flat bread into triangle shapes. Cook in the oven (10 minutes at 180° C) or in a sandwich press until golden and crunchy. Top these crispy triangles with a spoonful of Mexican Mince, a sprinkle of reduced-fat cheese and a spoonful of low-fat natural yoghurt. Add spring onions and chilli flakes for extra spice.


Variation:

Comment:

Double the recipe and freeze individual servings for an easy dinner another day.

Healthy tip!

To keep lean meats juicy and add flavour, try brushing with a marinade.
