- Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
- Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (peeling optional).
- Pop the wedges onto a large (lined) baking tray.
- Toss with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer.
- When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
- Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
- Drain and rinse the beans in a sieve.
- Pop half the beans into a bowl and roughly mash with a fork.
- Mix the whole beans into the bowl and set aside.
- Place a large pan over medium-high heat (without oil).
- Once hot, fry the beef mince until browned, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- Use a spoon to break up the beef as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper.
- Stir in the Mexican spice mix, garlic and tomato paste.
- Cook until fragrant, 1 min.
- Add ¼ tsp salt, ½ tsp sugar, 50ml water (double all for 4p), the red wine jus and the beans to the pan.
- Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
- Once thickened, taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
- Lay the tortillas out on a board.
- Spoon the beef mixture down the centre of each, then roll up to enclose the filling.
- Drizzle a little oil into the bottom of an ovenproof dish, then lay in the enchiladas. Pack them snugly, side by side, with the folded edge underneath so they don't unroll.
- Scatter the cheese and chorizo over the top.
- Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until golden, 8-10 mins.
- Meanwhile, halve the avocado and remove the pit.
- Use a spoon to scoop the flesh out into a bowl and mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, then mix together.
- When ready, divide your enchiladas between plates.
- Serve the wedges, smashed avocado and creme fraiche alongside.
