Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil, plus extra to brush
  • 2 red onions, sliced
  • 500g British beef mince (5% fat)
  • 2 tsp chipotle chilli paste (from larger supermarkets)
  • 200ml boiling water
  • 4 medium tortilla wraps
  • 2 little gem lettuces or ¼ iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 6 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1 lime, quartered, to serve
  • Pinch paprika, optional

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/ gas 6. Heat the 1 tbsp oil in a large non–stick frying pan, add the red onions and beef mince, then fry over a medium heat for 6-8 minutes until the onions have started to soften and the beef has browned.
  2. Mix the chipotle paste with the boiling water, then add to the pan.
    Season with salt and black pepper, then simmer for 6-8 minutes until the liquid has cooked off.
  3. Meanwhile, brush the tortillas with a little oil, then put each one
    in an ovenproof bowl (pudding basins are ideal). Bake for 5-6 minutes until golden and firm – work in batches if you only have 1 or 2 bowls. Remove from the oven and leave to cool while you repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  4. To serve, half-fill the tortilla cases with shredded lettuce, then top with the hot chipotle beef, tomatoes and cucumber. Add a dollop of yogurt and a lime wedge to each, then sprinkle with paprika (if using) and serve straightaway.

  1. Chipotle chilli paste has a smoky flavour as well as heat. If you don’t like spicy food, use 1 tsp smoked paprika instead.
