  • squash or pumpkin 200g, chopped into 1cm pieces
  • ground cumin 2 tsp
  • paprika 1 tsp
  • garlic granules 1 tsp
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • frozen chunky chips 600g

  • red chilli 1 long, or pickled jalapeños 2 tbsp, sliced
  • coriander ½ a small bunch, chopped
  • mature cheddar 200g, grated
  • soured cream or yogurt 4 tbsp

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Toss the onion, courgettes and squash on a baking tray with the cumin, paprika, garlic, oil and some seasoning. Mix well and roast in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes until golden and tender, stirring halfway through.

  • Step 2

    Tip the frozen chips onto another shallow baking tray and bake above the vegetables for 25-30 minutes or until crisp and golden. Leave the oven on.

  • Step 3

    Blanch the beans for 2-3 minutes until bright green and tender, then drain well. Stir the tomatoes, lime juice, half the chilli and half the coriander in a small bowl with some seasoning.

  • Step 4

    When the chips and vegetables are done, transfer the chips to a large baking dish and spoon over the roasted veg and beans. Scatter with the cheese, bake for 5-10 minutes until melted and bubbling, then scatter over the tomato salsa, soured cream, remaining chilli and coriander to serve.
