  • 4 large tomatoes diced
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives

1. Add a small amount of oil to a frying pan over medium high heat and saute onion for five minutes. Add tomato paste and fry for a further minute before browning the mince. Stir in spices, oregano and garlic powder. Add beans, corn, tin tomatoes, water and beef stock powder. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 25 minutes or until it has thickened.
