  • Blender


  • 440 g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 green chilli pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs tomato puree
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small handful of fresh coriander
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 100 g kidney beans, cooked, rinsed and cooled
  • 100 g sweetcorn, cooked, rinsed and cooled


  • Pop all the ingredients, except the beans and sweetcorn, into a blender.
  • Pulse until you have the desired consistency. I like mine a little chunky.
  • Pour into a serving bowl and stir in the beans and sweetcorn. Serve with nachos or plantain chips.
  • Keep in an airtight container for a couple of days. It’s best prepared ahead to allow the flavours to develop.


Get creative, mix up your beans. 
Too hot? Reduce the chillies. 
Need a good homemade fajita or enchilada sauce? Add a tsp of Cajun mix.
Vegan or Vegetarian? Cram in more beans and add a tsp of Cajun mix for bean fajitas or tacos.
