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!

Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes cut into chips
  • 1 beef oxo cube
  • Fry light

Instructions

  • As you are preparing the chips, put them into a pan of cold water. Once all done, give them a good shake around in the water and drain them.
  • Refill the pan with cold water to cover the chips, and sprinkle in the Oxo cube
  • Bring the pan up to the boil, and then simmer the chips for a further 6 minutes
  • Drain the chips in a colander, and allow them to steam for 3-4 minutes to get rid of excess moisture.
  • Pop the chips back into the empty pan, and spray them all over with Fry light. Give them a stir and repeat a few times- this should fully coat them and also ruffle up the outsides a bit to help with a crisp in the oven
  • Pour onto a chip mesh (or pizza tray) or just a regular baking tray and bake for around 25-30 minutes at 180c until golden brown and crispy on the outiside.
