  • Spray olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red capsicum, seeded, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican chilli powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray a deep medium sized rectangle baking tray with olive oil. Prepare another large baking tray with baking paper.

Simmer for 4-5 minutes or until the mixture has slightly thickened. Set aside.
  4. Place baked pita chips into a deep baking tray and top with tomato, bean and corn mix plus grated cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, until bubbling and golden. Top with coriander sprigs to serve.
