Instructions

Prep the Veg
1
  • Preheat your oven (for the tortillas) to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 1cm chunks.
  • Zest half the lime (double for 4p). Chop into four wedges.
  • Roughly chop the chives (use scissors if you prefer).
  • Drain and rinse the kidney beans.

TIP: If you want to avoid turning on the oven you can dry-fry the tortillas in a pan instead.

Cook the Beef
2
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat (without oil).
  • Once the pan is hot, fry the beef mince until browned, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
  • Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper.
Simmer the Sauce
3
  • Add the pepper and Mexican spice mix to the pan and fry for 1 min.
  • Mix in the passata, beans and stock powder.
  • Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, 7-8 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once simmered, stir through the chipotle paste.

TIP: Add a splash of water if the sauce becomes too dry.

Warm the Tortillas
4
  • Pop the tortillas into the oven to warm, 1-2 mins.
Make the Zesty Creme Fraiche
5
  • Add the creme fraiche and lime zest to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir to combine.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Plate up the warmed tortillas.
  • Top each with a generous helping of the Mexican spiced beef mince.
  • Spoon over a dollop of zesty creme fraiche and a sprinkling of chives.
  • Serve with lime wedges alongside for squeezing over.
