  1. Step 1

    Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and fry the onion for 4-5 mins or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 mins before stirring in the spices.
  2. Step 2

    Tip in the black beans and stir well. Pour in two-thirds of the stock and stir until bubbling. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 mins. Mash the beans with a potato masher to the thickness you prefer – add a splash more stock to loosen, if needed.
  3. Step 3

    Sprinkle with the coriander, jalapeños and feta, and serve with tortilla chips and lime wedges for squeezing.
