    …cooking tip

    This bean mixture is also good as a filling for warm tortillas or taco shells. Serve them with some bought or home-made guacamole. (For guacamole, halve, stone and peel 2 large avocados. Mash with 3 tbsp lemon juice, then stir in 1 crushed garlic clove, 3 tbsp crème fraîche, and seasoning. Add a large pinch of crushed chilli flakes or a dash of Tabasco sauce, if you like. Serve immediately.)
