The instruction how to make Minikins with Mexican beans

  1. Preheat oven to 200u00b0C. Heat half of the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini, onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5-8 minutes or until soft. Add the seasoning and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic.
  2. Add the tomato and kidney beans and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
  3. Use a sharp knife to remove the top of each minikin. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and discard. Spoon the bean mixture evenly among the minikins. Place the minikins and minikin lids in a roasting pan. Drizzle over the remaining oil and bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until tender.
  4. Place the stuffed minikins on a serving platter. Top with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with coriander. Top with minikin lids and serve.
