Black Bean Fajitas

This classic tex-mex recipe is inspired by 'refried black beans', a traditional staple of the Mexican kitchen. Yes, it seems like a lot of beans but it forms into a paste and is just right for 8 big wraps. Two more tips: don't be afraid to use lots of coriander in the Guacamole and when in doubt, add more lime juice!

Key to success: Crush at least half of the beans and let it simmer on high enough heat so the water evaporates. This creates a thick paste with a richer flavour. If you want more information, search for 'refried black beans'.

Sauté onion

medium heat ~4 min

Add bell pepper, garlic, cumin, smoked paprika powder and chilli flakes

medium heat ~2 min

Add black beans (including the liquid of the can) and half of the tomatoes

season with salt and pepper, bring to a boil and keep at medium heat so that water keeps boiling off and a paste is formed. With the back of a spoon, crush half of the beans ~20 min

Make Guacamole: add avocados and remaining tomatoes in a bowl

mash with a fork until it has the right structure, season with salt and pepper, and squeeze lime ~10 min

Spread creme fraiche (or oat fraiche) over the wraps, add black bean mix, guacamole and fresh coriander.

Don't forget to add more lime juice 🙂
