Method

  1. Heat 2 tsp of the vegetable oil in a small saucepan. Cook the onion over medium heat for 5 mins until beginning to soften. Add the spices and cook for 1 min. Season with salt and black pepper and add the mixed beans, cherry tomatoes and chopped pepper. Cook for 5 mins until the veg is beginning to soften and sauce reduced.
  2. Toss the sliced tortillas with the remaining 1 tsp of oil and season with salt and black pepper and a pinch of crushed chilli flakes.
  3. If using an air-fryer, cook for 3-5 mins, shaking after 2 mins, until golden brown and crisp. If baking in the oven, lay the tortilla pieces in a single layer and bake for 8-10 mins until golden, turning after 4 mins.
  4. When the tortillas are crisp, heap into the centre of the air-fryer basket or baking tray and pile on the veg topping. Scatter over the cheese evenly and cook until the cheese is bubbling.
  5. To serve, divide between plates, sprinkle with sliced spring onion, scatter over the avocado and add a spoonful of yogurt for dipping, if you like.
