Olive oil

420g can chilli beans

500g tomato-based pasta sauce ½ egg­plant, finely diced

5 but­ton mush­rooms, diced 1 cour­gette, finely diced

Salt and pepper

Corn chips

Grated cheese (moz­zarella is awe­some)

2 ripe av­o­ca­dos

2 tbsp sour cream A squeeze of le­mon juice Salt and pepper

SALSA

¼ cu­cum­ber

2 toma­toes

¼ cup Ital­ian pars­ley 1 tbsp bal­samic vine­gar
