  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  1. Cook the French fries following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 10 mins. Prepare the guacamole by mashing the avocado and mixing in the lime juice, red onion and chopped tomato.

  2. Add the garlic, chipotle paste, ground cumin and ground coriander to the onions, which should be softened and translucent. Fry for 1 min, then tip in the mixed beans and the chopped tomatoes.
