Be creative with your next batch of Mexican bean chilli – enjoy some as usual and save some to whip a batch of these delicious Mexican Bean Sausage Rolls with Salsa together for a fun lunch or cool entertaining option for friends and family. They’re full of wholesome legumes and plenty of spice!

We love Careme Butter Puff Pastry which comes in Wholemeal Spelt and All Butter Puff (not sponsored) for our pastry, but you could make a pastry or buy one that suits your needs.

Option to serve with salsa, and if time and ripe avocados allow, some guacamole would be all kinds of awesome too.

Full recipe below….


Makes 12-16 small sausage rolls // Vegetarian

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 small (100g) brown onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 small (100g) red capsicum, diced

1 cobs (1/2  cup kernels or 100g) corn

2 tsp smokey paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

good pinch ground chilli flakes, or to taste

1/2 bunch fresh coriander, leaves and stalks finely chopped

200g cooked kidney beans or tinned, rinsed and drained

200g cooked lentils or tinned, rinsed and drained

200g cooked black beans or tinned, rinsed and drained

200g diced tomatoes

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

375g Careme Butter Puff or Wholemeal Spelt Pastry

1 free range egg, whisked + 1 additional for egg wash on pastry

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

sea salt and black pepper

Heat a large frypan on medium heat, add olive oil, onion, garlic, corn, capsicum and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Add spice blend and cook for a further 1 minute then add remaining ingredients (except for pastry) and season with salt and pepper. Bring to simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to cool then add breadcrumbs, grated cheddar and 1 whisked egg. Mix together. Heat oven to 180C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Lay pastry on chopping board and slice into 2 equal pieces. Divide the mexican bean mix between the two pieces, making a log / sausage down the middle of the pastry. Give the mix a squeeze with your hands to bring the ingredients together and shape it. Bring one side of the pastry over the top of the sausage and tuck in tightly. Bring the other side over and tuck it over tightly. Slice into desired number of sausage rolls and place onto the baking tray. Wash the top with egg using a pastry brush and place in oven to cook for 40 minutes. Serve with spicy salsa and guacamole if desired or enjoy just as is!
