There are so many dishes where a squeeze of lime adds such incredible flavour and lift, and I love that Mexican-style combination of zesty lime, chilli and garlic. I’ve been wanting to have a go at a Mexican all-in-one style rice dish where lime is one of the predominant flavours, and the great thing about this is that it’s packed full of healthy vegetables and is also delicious both hot and cold- so worth making a double batch and saving some for quick and easy lunches.

This dish could easily be made vegetarian or vegan by just omitting the chicken, the inclusion of the black beans (absolutely my favourite type of bean!) gives it real filling power as well as texture and flavour. I use brown (wholegrain) rice, as it’s a lot more nutritious than white rice, and the nutty texture complements the dish as a whole. This could easily be substituted for white rice if you need it to be ready a bit more quickly!

I made a slightly simpler version of this for the kids, where I omitted the chilli, tomatoes and pepper- they loved it too!

Print Recipe
10 minutes
30 minutes


  • 500 g peeled and chipped potatoes
  • 1 dessert spoon instant mashed potato
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper leave this out if you don’t like them spicy
  • low calorie cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 180c. Prepare your chips. (If you are doing them in advance, leave them submerged in cold water until you are ready to use them and pat them dry with a teatowel or kitchen roll before using)
  • Mix together the instant mashed potato, garlic powder, onion granules, salt, pepper and cayenne
  • Put your raw chips into a bowl, spray generously with low calorie cooking spray, toss a couple of times and re-spray.
  • Sprinkle over the powder mix, turning the chips to ensure they all get covered
  • when fully coated, respray with low calorie cooking spray and mix again
  • Spread over your chip mesh, or over baking tray already sprayed with low calorie cooking spray. Give them one more spray all over and pop in the oven.
  • I find that 30 mins cooking time has them perfectly cooked, but it can depend on your oven so keep a bit of an eye on them after 25 minutes
  • Test a big one before you serve them to make sure that they are cooked through.


You can mix up the spices on the outside depending on what you are serving them with- I love garlic and rosemary too!
