    This is a quick and easy Mexican inspired dish and is really fun to make for family supper night. Be sure to have plenty of soured cream and guacamole on hand as it is disasterous to run out!

    1. In a non-stick frying pan brown the beef mince. Add chilli and fry for a few minutes until soft. Add cayenne, paprika, cumin and salt and stir well.
    2. Meanwhile heat the oil in a separate frying pan and cook and stir the onion until soft. Add green peppers and cook and stir until soft and until onions are browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    3. Heat the tortillas (in the oven or microwave, see tip) until soft and warm. Equally spread spiced meat and peppers onto the tortillas. Add a spoon soured cream and guacamole and roll up. Enjoy!

    Heating tortillas

    To get the best results when heating your tortillas, preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and lay the tortillas directly on the centre oven shelf for 5 to 8 minutes until just warm. If using the microwave, warm tortillas one at a time in incremements of 8 to 10 seconds on high on a microwave safe plate (they should be warm in about 15 seconds).
