Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Bake blind in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove the paper and baking blind material and cook for a further 7-8 minutes until well cooked.

Brown the mince in a large frying-pan and set aside. Add a dash more oil to the pan and gently cook the onion and jalapeno peppers for 7-10 minutes until softened, Increase the heat and stir in the Mexican chilli seasoning, tomato paste and canned tomatoes. Cook for 1-2 minutes before stirring in the mince. Simmer gently for 12-15 minutes.

Stir in the red kidney beans and spoon the hot mixture into the cooked pastry shell. Pile the corn chips over the filling and sprinkle the cheese on top.

Reduce heat to 180°C and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the corn chips are crispy and the cheese has melted.
