First of all, put the rice on to cook. Keep an eye on it and when it is ready, drain it.
In the mean time...
Drain the beans and wash them in a strainer. Put them to one side.
|Mexican-style bean mix - all in a|
tin from your local supermarket.
In a large pot, fry the cumin until it changes.
|Jeera, chillies and peppers - all|
at the hot end of the cooking.
Add the chillies and fry them for getting on for a minute.
Add the red pepper and put the lid on.
Remember that peppers have a lot of water in them - see the knowledge and cheats page.
Add the onion and garlic and let it fry for a few minutes, until the onion has started to go soft/translucent
|Onions bring down the temperature,|
allowing you to add the garlic.
Add the chopped tomatoes, salt, coriander leaf, lemon juice and mixed beans and bring to the boil but don't boil it for long.
Put the now-cooked rice into three lunch boxes.
Pour the salsa sauce on top of it and that is it.
This makes a perfect meal to go with home made tortilla chips.
