  • Lime 1, juiced
  • Sugar pinch, optional
  • Dried Oregano pinch
  • Cumin pinch

For the refried beans

  • Olive oil 1 tbsp

For the guacamole

Method

  • Step 1

    Start by making the salsa. Simply mix all the salsa ingredients together and season with a little salt, then set aside.

  • Step 2

    Next, make the beans. Heating the olive oil in a frying pan and when warm, add the garlic and chilli, plus a pinch of salt, stirring for about 3 mins. Add the cumin, let it sizzle for about 1 min – making sure it doesn’t burn, then add the black beans, crushing some of the beans with the back of a wooden spoon. Season with freshly ground black pepper and a little more salt, if needed. Continue to heat gently while you make the guacamole.

  • Step 3

    To make the guacamole, scoop the flesh out of the avocado halves and into a large bowl. Add the lime juice and season with a pinch of salt, then using a fork, crush the mixture until mostly smooth but with a few lumps. Add the chilli, tomato, coriander, spring onions and freshly ground black pepper, then mix through.

  • Step 4

    Heat the rice according to pack instructions. On each tortilla spoon on some rice, then top with pulled pork, the guacamole, refried beans and salsa, plus a dollop of sour cream, lettuce and coriander. Roll up and enjoy!
