An easy hack when it comes to speedy suppers, tortilla wraps can inject Mexican fire into any number of meals, says food writer and SL contributor Chloe Scott-Moncrieff. From a South-American tostada, to a creative sweet treat, here are three to try…
Shred your tortilla and toast in a large pan on the hob, using a little light olive or vegetable oil. Push to one side.
In the same pan, fry the garlic for a few minutes, making sure not to burn it. Pour in the black beans and 1 tbsp of water. Add the spices and let the beans stew gently. Taste. Season with salt and pepper and as many herbs as you like.
Gently simmer for 10 minutes, adding a little water to the beans if they dry out.
To finish, crumble over the feta cheese. Scatter over the tomatoes.
Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime. Serve.
Fry the onion in a pan. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and the chilli – and vodka if using. Simmer for a few minutes on a low heat. Season with a little salt and add a sprinkling of sugar if the tomatoes are tart.
To assemble, cover the bottom of a large baking dish with a layer of the shredded tortillas, then a layer of the tomato mixture. If there’s more left over, keep layering. Finish with the mozzarella to cover the top.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling.
Top with the avocado slices. An extra layer could include a pile of fresh herbs and a fried egg.
Finish with a drizzle of sour cream. Serve with salad.
