Recipe: Mexicano Sausages

Spice up your sausages with this recipe from Food in a Minute. Not only is it full of flavour (especially when you add the jalapeños!), but this recipe is so versatile! Plus the ingredients are generally relatively inexpensive and filling - add some veg for a full family meal.

To make the Mexican Black Beans and Tomato Base, heat a dash of oil in a saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook over a low heat until onion is soft. Add cumin, coriander and tomato paste. Stir and continue cooking a further minute. 

Pour over Wattie’s Mexican Style Tomatoes. Add Wattie’s Black Beans and chopped oregano. Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until sauce is reduced by a third. Stir in jalapeño peppers if desired. 

At the same time, grill the sausages until they are cooked. 

To serve, either pour Mexican Tomatoes and Black Bean sauce over sausages or cut cooked sausages into pieces and add to Mexican Tomatoes and Black Bean sauce. Serve with rice and garnish with chopped fresh coriander.
