Tips

♠ I like onions to be cooked well to get sweetness from them.
♥ Instead of sour cream, Connage yoghurt goes with this recipe beautifully.
♦ If you forget to soak kidney beans, try north Mexican style,
using diced potatoes, carrots and peas.
♣ Adding a little organic sugar increases the depth of the taste.
