    Serves: 12


    6 eggs, hard-boiled

    2 x 280 g packets small corn tortillas

    3 Spanish onions, diced

    3 garlic cloves, crushed

    1 small red chilli, sliced

    2 teaspoons cumin

    2 x 240 g canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed

    3 cups lettuce leaves

    1 avocado, diced

    2 limes and juice

    2 tomatoes, diced

    1 cup coriander leaves

    4. Divide lettuce between tortillas cups. Top with bean mixture.

    5. Toss avocado in 1/4 cup of lime juice and spoon into cups.

    6. Top with tomato, coriander, diced hard-boiled egg and sour cream.
