About this recipe: Delicious spicy beef enchiladas. If you like a lot of heat, try stronger chilli powders to bump up the spiciness.

Serves: 2 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons chilli powder
  • 350ml water
  • 1 large tomato, pureed
  • 200g tomato puree
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 500g beef mince
  • 2 peppers, choppped
  • 1 large onion, choppped
  • 4 tortilla wraps
  • 150g cheese, grated

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. Prepare a paste consisting of the oil, flour and chili powder. Add the water, and stir in the pureed tomato, the tomato puree, cumin and garlic salt. This will form the enchilada sauce.
  3. Transfer the sauce to a saucepan and heat over medium-high heat.
  4. As the enchilada sauce simmers, heat the mince, peppers and onion in a frying pan, until the beef is brown and the onions are soft and semi-transparent.
  5. Fill the tortillas on a plate with the filling, and fold them, by starting with opposite corners. Put a little bit of sauce inside each tortilla. Place some cheese between the last two folds, and place the tortillas upside-down in a dish. The cheese should melt, holding the tortillas shut.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese, and any remaining filling on top of the enchiladas. Pour the rest of the sauce evenly over the burritos.
  7. Place the dish in the oven for 10 minutes, and enjoy.


Lift the enchilada out of the dish carefully with a spatula.
