Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion, green pepper, and garlic, and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened.

Add the tomatoes and chilli, and cook over a medium heat for a further 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Stir in the chilli powder and paprika, and cook for 3 minutes, then add the refried beans, breaking them up with a fork. Add the measured water and cook, stirring from time to time, for 8-10 minutes, until the mixture thickens.

Spoon the beans into a baking dish, arrange the tortilla chips around the edge, and sprinkle with cumin. Sprinkle the cheese over the beans and tortilla chips.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200c (180c fan, Gas 6) for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted. Sprinkle paprika on top before serving.
