This delicious recipe has a Mexican flavour to it.


The Pastry

  • Almond Flour (7 heaped tbsp)
  • Coconut Flour (3 heaped tbsp)
  • Konjac Flour (2 heaped tsp)
  • Baking Powder (1 tsp)
  • Egg
  • Olive Oil (3 tbsp)
  • Salt (pinch)
  • Butter (to grease pan)

For Mexican Filling

  • Minced Beef (500g)
  • Konjac Flour (2 tsp)
  • Spring Onion (6 sliced)
  • Black Beans (1 can)
  • Soft Cheese (250g)
  • Red Onion
  • Eggs
  • Chilli Powder (1 tsp)
  • Cumin (2 tsp)
  • Oregano (2 tsp)
  • Red Bell Pepper (1 diced)
  • Garlic (4 cloves)


For the pastry
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, until you get a dough like texture. Add a little bit more water if it is too thick.

Grease the inside of a round baking tray with butter. I used a 20cm wide and 8cm high baking tray and all of the measurements of the ingredients are for that size. I use two sheets of greased parchment paper to roll the dough between. The based I make slightly bigger than the actual base, so that when I put it in the baking tray it comes up the sides by a few centimetres. I then with wet hands, fix the dough around the inside of the baking tray. I then put the top of the pie, on a separate piece of paper. I put it all in the oven at around 180�C for about 15 to 20 minutes.

While the pastry is cooking, finely chop your garlic and fry it in olive oil for a minute or two. Then add your chopped onions and mincemeat and spices and cook until browned.

Beat your eggs and then add your soft cheese, konjac flour, beans, spring onion, eggs and anything else you want to add to the dish and stir for 4 or 5 minutes.

Remove it from the heat and spoon it into your pastry. Keep pushing it down so it fills all gaps. Place your pastry top on and put back in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Tip: Instead of minced beef, you could also use finely chopped beef.
