In a large pan sauté the onions in the oil until they start to go soft. Now add the garlic and the coriander stems. Stir to coat. Next add the spices and keep stirring until they start to toast – you will smell this.

Now add the beans, tomatoes, paste, chilli (if using) and salt.

For the guacamole, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

To assemble, place the corn chips on a platter, then top with the beans, the guacamole, then the quark. Garnish.
