Cheesy Beef Enchiladas

Cheesy Beef Enchiladas

with tomato and scallion salsa

The name of this popular Mexican dish derives from two Aztec words meaning 'chilli' and 'flute'—references to its rolled-up nature and the sauce it's often eaten with. These particular enchiladas are stuffed full of spiced beef and cheese and paired with a zingy salsa.

Instructions

Make the Salsa
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Drain and rinse the kidney beans.
  • Halve the lemon. Cut half into thick wedges and juice the rest. 
  • Chop the tomatoes into small pieces.
  • Trim and grate the carrot (no need to peel). Trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • In a bowl mix the tomato with half the scallion then season with salt, pepper and 1 tsp lemon juice (double for 4p).
Fry the Beef
2
  • Heat a pan on medium-high heat (no oil). 
  • Once the pan is hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins.
  • Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
Season and Simmer
3
  • Once mince is cooked, add half the grated carrot, kidney beans, cumin and ketchup to the pan.
  • Add a splash of water and mix together.
  • Cook for 1 min and remove from the heat.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
Bake the Enchiladas
4
  • Lay the tortillas on a board, spoon some of the mince down the centre of each, then roll them up to enclose the filling.
  • Drizzle a little oil into the bottom of an ovenproof dish then lay in the wraps. 
  • Pack them snugly, side by side, with the folded edge underneath so they don't unroll.
  • Top with the grated cheese.
  • Bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 8-10 mins.
Make the Topping
5
  • Meanwhile, halve the avocado and scoop out the flesh.
  • Use a fork to mash it. Add a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Season to taste salt and pepper then mix well to combine.
Plate it Up
6
  • Once cooked, remove the enchiladas from the oven. 
  • Divide between plates.
  • Top with the smashed avocado.
  • Serve with tomato salsa and remaining carrot and lemon wedges.
  • Garnish with remaining scallions.
