About this recipe: Great alternative to lasagne! This is a firm favourite for my family. Low in fat, bursting with flavour and very filling. Great served with sweet potato fries or roasted butternut squash. Feeds four hungry people.

Serves: 4 

  • low calorie cooking spray
  • 300g extra lean minced beef
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried coriander leaves
  • 1 chicken Oxo® cube
  • 1 large red onion, finely sliced
  • 3 peppers (different colours), finely sliced
  • 1 chilli, very finely sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 Weight Watchers® soft tortilla wraps
  • 50g low fat Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and over a medium heat add the minced beef. Stir in a pinch of salt, coriander and crumbled Oxo® cube. After 3 to 4 minutes, add the onion, peppers, chilli and garlic. Cook and stir for 3 minutes to soften the vegetables then add the tomatoes, paprika and pepper to your taste. Stir frequently over a medium high heat for 10 minutes, until the beef is no longer pink.
  2. Preheat the grill.
  3. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray then spoon 1/4 of the beef mixture into the dish. Layer one wrap on top then add another quarter of the mixture. Keep layering like you would a lasagne. On the top sprinkle the cheese and dust with a little smoked paprika.
  4. Pop under the grill until cheese has melted and is golden brown. Cut into quarters and serve.
