How to make our recipe


Spray a large saucepan lightly with oil and place over a medium heat. When hot, add red onion and red pepper for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add the mince and cook, stirring, until browned all over.


Add the tomatoes and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, stir in the kidney beans and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Stir in the salsa, season to taste and heat through.


Serve immediately, sprinkled with coriander and topped with fromage frais, with some boiled rice (100 cals, 4 Checks, 0.5g fat for each 30g dry weight or 75g cooked weight).

Alternatively, roll up in a tortilla (180 cals, 6 Checks, 4g fat per 60g tortilla) and eat with your fingers.
