Fry's Golden Crumbed Schnitzels

3 soft flour tortillas/wraps

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground coriander

½ tsp ground cumin

2 tsp salt

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 green bell pepper

2 avocados, mashed

½ red onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Juice of 1 lime

Salt, to taste


Black olives

Lime wedges

Sriracha, or hot sauce of choice


Cut the tortillas into eighths (into little triangles).

Sprinkle the tortilla chips with smoked paprika, coriander, cumin and salt. Brush the chips with some olive oil.

Place the chips in the aifryer for 2-3 minutes at 185°C, shaking halfway.

Place the Schnitzels side by side in the airfryer. Air fry the Schnitzels for 8 minutes at 185°C, until golden*. Once cooked, slice them into strips, about 1cm thick.

If you don't have an airfyer, preheat the oven to 180°C. Spread the spiced tortilla chips out on a lined baking tray in a single layer. Ensure the chips have been crushed with some olive oil. Bake the tortilla wedges for about 6 minutes. Flip the tortilla chips and bake for another 6-9 minutes, until they are just beginning to color.  Remove from the oven and let cool.

For the Schnitzels, place under a preheated hot grill for 10-12 minutes (from frozen), turning once, until golden. Once cooked, slice them into strips, about 1cm thick.

To make the guacamole, combine the mashed avocado, onion, garlic, lime juice and coriander in a bowl. Season with salt.

Slice the green pepper.

Halve the olives and depit them if required.

Place the tortilla chips in a bowl and top them with the Schnitzel strips, guacamole, black beans, green pepper, salsa, black olives, lime wedges and hot sauce.

*Reduce cooking time if the Golden Crumbed Schnitzels have defrosted.
