Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Boil a half filled kettle for the couscous.
While it comes to the boil, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 1cm chunks.
Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
Put the couscous in a medium bowl. Pour in the boiling water for the couscous (see pantry for amount), stir in half the chicken stock paste, then cover tightly with cling film.
Leave to the side for 10 mins or until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan on high heat (no oil). Once the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Adjust the heat if necessary. Stir only twice during this time - you want the sweetcorn to pick up some nice colour.
Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the (now empty) pan to high heat (no oil).
Once the pan is hot, add the pork mince and pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir-fry until the mince has browned and the pepper has softened, 6-7 mins. Use a spoon to break the mince up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
Meanwhile, zest and cut the lime into wedges. Grate the cheese.
Add the garlic and cook for 30 secs. Add the passata, sun-dried tomato paste, chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder), remaining chicken stock paste, water and sugar for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). Stir to combine.
Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.
Once the sauce has thickened, add a good squeeze of lime juice. Remove from the heat.
Fluff the couscous up with a fork, then stir through the lime zest and share between your bowls.
Spoon over the chipotle pork. Top with the charred corn and finish by sprinkling over the cheese. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
