  • 2 Sweet Potato (Small)
  • 1 400 Gram Pack of Black Beans
  • 1 Sweet Corn Cob
  • 100 Grams of Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Small Bunch of Coriander
  • 70 Grams of Tasty Cheese (grated)
  • 50 Grams of Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Teaspoons of Mole Spice Mix
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 1 Tablespoons of Tomato Paste

Cook Potatoes:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave until tender, 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through (potatoes should be soft when cut in half. Microwave for longer if required). Set aside to cool slightly. Slice down the centre and mash inside a little with a fork.

Prepare Ingredients:

Wash the fresh produce. Peel and small dice ¾ of the red onion (you will have left over). Peel and mince garlic. Remove silks and husks from corn cob (and discard). Cut corn kernels from the cob (discarding the cob). Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Pick coriander leaves and roughly chop (discarding stems). Thinly slice ½ the jalapeno (removing the seeds if you wish - you will have left over). Zest lime and cut in half. Drain and rinse beans.

Make 'Taco' Bean Filling:

Heat olive oil (enough to cover base) in a pan over medium heat. Add onion (reserving 1 TBS) and garlic and cook until tender and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the spice mix, beans and tomato paste and cook a further 5 minutes, until beans are warmed through. Squeeze in some lime juice (to taste) and zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed.

Prepare Salsa:

In the meantime, in a bowl combine cherry tomatoes, corn kernels, remaining onion, jalalpeno (to taste) and coriander (reserving some for garnish). Squeeze over remaining lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
