This vibrant and fresh salad works brilliantly as part of a barbecue or summer dinner. It combines classic Mexican ingredients, such as avocado and sweetcorn, with mixed beans and crunchy toasted tortilla chips.

  1. Drain the beans and sweetcorn together and rinse. Pat dry with kitchen paper and tip them into a large bowl with the tomatoes, red onion, spring onion, avocados and lime. Mix well and add a small pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Mix in most of the tortilla chips and cheese. Serve in a large serving bowl topped with the remaining tortilla chips and cheese.
