Shape into 12 ping-pong- sized balls .

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the meatballs and cook, turning them frequently, until golden. Remove from the pan.

Tip the onion and garlic into the pan with the pepper and stir-fry until softened. Stir in the spices and chilli paste, then pour in the stock. Return the meatballs to the pan and cook, covered, over a low heat for 10 mins. Stir in the tomatoes and beans, and cook, uncovered, for a few mins more, add the juice of the lime.

p.s.

Original uses cherry tomatoes in a can, avocado, coriander leaf and stalks, red onions, chipotle paste.

I either didn’t have those ingredient or I hate them like the coriander leaf and avocado. I suppose the red onion, yellow  pepper, black beans, green avocado is for colour, I used what I had, I also added more spices as I felt like it could do with a few more. 😉 I turned our fab!
