Finish with a little coarsly chopped coriander. Your Mexican tart is ready.
Remarks
The Tabasco sauce in stage 6 is not absolutely essentail, but it really does pep up the flavour.

Similarly, though it is more Mediterranean than South American, you can use puréed chick peas.
Keeping
2 days at most in the fridge.
