  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.

  2. Spray the tortilla wraps with the vegetable oil then sprinkle a little ground coriander over and press, oil side down into a 6 or 12 deep hole muffin tin – they will stick out slightly, but ease them in so that they create a cup. Make sure that you don’t put them all next to each other – they need a little space.

  3. Bake in the oven for 8–10 minutes until golden brown and just crispy. Set aside to cool while you make the chilli.

  4. Heat a large sauté or saucepan until medium hot. Spray the vegetable oil then add the onion and carrots and fry for 2-3 minutes until just softened. Add the garlic, chillies, cumin, paprika, ground coriander and chilli powder and fry for another 2 minutes until just toasted.

  5. Add the tomato purée and fry for 1 minute, then add the drained beans and chopped tomatoes. Refill the tomato can with water, add to the pan then crumble in the stock cube and stir well.

  6. Stir well, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the sauce just thickened.

  7. Grate the lime zest into the chilli then add the lime juice and plenty of black pepper and stir well.

  8. Divide the tortilla cups between serving plates and spoon the chilli into them.

  9. Top with the yoghurt and roughly chopped coriander and serve straightaway.
