Ingredients

Ingredients for the bites:
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 250g mushrooms (chopped)
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 Habanero chili, chopped or ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 1x 400g cans of kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • ½ lemon (juiced)
  • 100g Nestlé GoFree Corn Flakes
Guacamole ingredients
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • ½ tsp garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp ground cayenne pepper (optional)

Method


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then add the onion and cook for 5 minutes

  3. Next, add garlic, cumin and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the coriander, salt, pepper, and the chilli. Add the beans and stir, letting the mixture cook for 1 minute

  4. Blend the mixture in a food processor until it all comes together. Add ½ the coriander and 75g of the Corn Flakes, and blend again, until the mixture is well combined. Allow to stand for 5 minutes so that the Corn Flakes absorb the moisture and the mixture firms up

  5. Meanwhile, place the remaining 25g of Corn Flakes and coriander into a bowl and mash up the Corn Fakes so they break into large crumbs

  6. Take a tablespoon-scoop of the mixture and roll it into a ball in your hands. Roll it around in the bowl of Corn Flakes and coriander and place it on the baking sheet. Repeat until all the mixture is used

  7. Bake for 20 minutes, until even and golden brown

  8. Meanwhile prepare the guacamole by placing all the ingredients together in a bowl. Mix to combine and serve with the Mexican bites.
