Ingredients List

Serves 1
  • cups red kidney beans (black beans or butter beans also work well)
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetcorn
  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup spring onion , chopped
  • 1/2 cup coriander (cilantro)
  • 1-2 tablespoon chili pepper
  • 90 ml lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil


  1. Place all the ingredients except the tortillas in a large bowl and toss to combine. 
  2. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add more lime juice or chilli if required

Jalapeno chillies vary greatly in heat, so it is smart to start with one tablespoon and adjust as needed.
