Comfort Food: Mexican Kapsalon

A kapsalon is normally a dish with meat and fries that is served in snack bars in the Netherlands. I already made a vegetarian kapsalon before. But I found a recipe on Uit Pauline's Keuken, with a Mexican twist on this dish. She made it with nachos for a healthier base. But I wanted to make it with fries as a weekend treat. Still it is a more healthy version than the original kapsalon because it has loads more veggies. I also replaced the meat in the recipe of course. The dish looks a mess. Sorry, not sorry ;) Anyway, enjoy :)

Mexican Kapsalon (serves 2)
- 100 gr vegetarian minced meat
- 1 spring onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- 250 gr fries
- 200 gr cubed tomatoes
- small can of  kidney beans
- small can of corn
- 1 bell pepper
- 50 gr grated cheese
- dash of smoked paprika and pepper
- olive oil
- some sour cream for serving

Chop the garlic, cube the bell pepper and cut the spring onion in rings. Heat some olive oil in a pan. Bake garlic and onion shortly. Add a dash of smoked paprika and the vegetarian minced meat. When brown, add the cubed bell pepper and the drained kidney beans and corn. Also add the tomatoes and some pepper. Let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile bake the fries.
When the fries are done put them on your plate and pour some sauce on top. Add some grated cheese and serve with sour cream.
