Notes

  • Note 1 I find a sharp knife best to cut the garlic and I use a small mandolin for the carrots. I don't peel the carrots or rinse them as I find they are usually good to go when I purchase them. 
  • Note 2 the best way to cook the mince is to use a flat utensil and break it up as you go. Breaking it into small and small pieces means that the mince will be thoroughly cooked. If there are large chunks of the mince, you will find that the outside is cooked but the inside is still pink. 
  • Note 3 to toast the corn chips, lay them on a baking tray and toast for about 5-10 mins. These can burn quickly (yes, I have burnt corn chips in my life, the oven smells for weeks!!) 
  • Note 4 I have made this dish with both black beans and red kidney beans. Both work very well. Use whichever one you have in the cupboard and it will be fine!
