  • 4 large ripe tomatoes
  • 2 ripe avocados, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 small red onions, diced
  • 1 small red chilli, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 3 tablespoons chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves
  • 200 g (7 oz) corn chips

1. Score a cross in the base of each tomato. Put them in a bowl of boiling water for 30 seconds, then plunge into cold water and peel the skin away from the cross. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon. Chop the tomato flesh.

2. Mix together the avocado, lime juice and sweet chilli sauce.

3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the onion, chilli, oregano, cumin and chilli powder over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the tomato, tomato paste and wine and cook for 5 minutes, or until the liquid reduces. Add the beans and coriander.

4. Divide the corn chips into four portions on heatproof plates. Top with the bean mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Flash under a hot grill (broiler) until the cheese melts. Serve with the avocado mixture and sour cream.
