It’s worth buying the best chorizo you can find for this, as it’s really the star of the recipe - we like the picante version. You will need to make sure you’re buying soft cooking chorizo, too, rather than the hard stuff.

1. Heat a splash of oil in a frying pan and cook the onion until soft, around 10 minutes.

2. Add the ground cumin and cook out for a minute or so, stirring. Add the black beans and a splash of water and stir to combine. Cook, stirring regularly for 5 minutes or so, mashing the beans with the back of a spoon a little.​​​​​​​

3. Combine the garlic and sour cream with a pinch of salt and set aside.​​​​​​​

4. Light two of the gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to medium. Once hot, place the sausages on the grill and cook until caramelised on both sides and heated through. Chorizo is a fatty sausage, so make sure you stay with the BBQ to move the sausages when the grill flares up.​​​​​​​

5. Chop up the chorizo and serve with the tacos, beans, sour cream, hot sauce and coriander.​​​​​​​
