  • Ingredients


Toss the frozen wedges in the oil and place them on a baking sheet and bake on a high shelf for 18 minutes.

Next, drain the black beans and rinse them under cold running water. Now place half of them in a large bowl, then add the tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, lime juice and half the coriander. Season well with some salt and whiz the whole lot with a stick blender until it is quite smooth.

Now you need to add the rest of the black beans and give these a short burst (this is to give the dip a little bit of texture). Then transfer it all to a bowl and fold in the crème fraiche.Taste to check the seasoning, then serve garnished with some more coriander and wedges of lime, with the hot crisp potato wedges.
