Fried black beans. Makes 400g

Guacamole. Makes 200g

Pico de gallo. Makes 300g

To serve 


  1. • Start with the fried beans. Sauté the onions, garlic and chilli with the oil for about five minutes at medium-low heat. They will become soft and translucent. Add the drained beans. Warm them up. Blitz with a hand blender and add some of the tinned liquid if needed. It should have the consistency of a loose hummus. Season to taste and put to one side. 
  2. • For the guacamole, scoop out the avocado. Crush it with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients, toss well and season with lime juice and salt to taste. 
  3. • To make the pico de gallo, combine all ingredients. Season with the citrus juice and salt
  4. • For the padrón peppers, heat a grill or a frying pan at high heat. Toss the peppers in a bit of rapeseed oil. Grill the padrón peppers on all sides. They will become nice and chargrilled. Sprinkle salt to taste all over the peppers. 
  5. • To serve, spoon each element into a bowl. Arrange the peppers on one side of the edge. Finish with the chips on the other side. Enjoy!
