Don't be put off by how many ingredients are in this recipe, they are household staples and it seriously takes minutes to prepare and thankfully yee old faithful TM does all the rest!

I have converted this recipe from Valli Little's 'Delicious' Quick Smart Cookbook.

My recommendation in this recipe is to increase the cumin from 1 teaspoon to a whole tablespoon.

Enjoy!  It is our midweek staple and the whole family loves it. Including the 4 year old twins!

    Our house LOVES this recipe. We only cook the 'meat' however, and serve on nachos instead of rice. I also leave out the chilli as I hate all chillies or heat - family adds chilli flakes or tobasco sauce at the table.
    Freezes really well and a great meal to cook for a friend in need, dont forget to take the cornchips, cheese and sour cream to go on top!

    This dish surprised me, I enjoyed it way more than I expected. I have it made it several times and continue to do so.....Don't miss the fresh coriander when serving - the combination of this with the beans and avocado make this dish what it is...delicious ! Even the non-coriander lovers in the houshold agree. Yum Yum.

    Thank you for posting, this is an awesome dish! Really easy and tasty, the avocado really goes well with the beans. I just added in some chopped capsicum and celery with the tomatoes to get some more veggies in there which worked well. This is going to be a midweek staple for us too.
