Recipe by Perfect Pixie
I adapted this out of a children's cookbook and changed it around quite a bit. It says you can use corn tortillas as well and you can also substitute chopped chicken. If you don't get tins on chopped tomatoes where you are then the recipe did call for 4 ripe tomatoes. I also used more than twice the amount of cheese called for and used a dominoes store brought white sauce which was also more than required.
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 400 g chopped tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (approx)
- 500 g lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon coriander
- 8 flour tortillas
- 300 ml white sauce
- 55 g monterey jack cheese, grated
