DIRECTIONS

  • First make the sauce.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan.
  • Add flour, chilli powder, oregano and cumin and cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden brown.
  • Add garlic and passata and mix to combine.
  • Stir the stock into the tomato and chilli mixture and bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until sauce reaches the required consistency.
  • Turn off heat.
  • (The sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.) Make the enchiladas.
  • Brown the mince in a dry frying pan (or wok) and then put the mince in a colander to drain off any excess fat.
  • In the same pan heat the oil and fry the onion and peppers until soft.
  • Return the cooked mince to the pan and add approximately⅓ of the sauce and stir to combine the mixture.
  • You can add more chilli powder to the meat at this point if you want to spice it up more.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Assemble the enchiladas.
  • Divide the meat and sauce mixture equally between the 8 flour tortillas, fold in the sides and secure with a cocktail stick to stop them from unfolding.
  • Place in a lightly greased baking tin.
  • You can usually only fit four in a tin; use 2 tins or freeze some of the enchiladas.
  • Pour the remaining sauce across the middle of the enchiladas and then remove the cocktail sticks.
  • Put the grated cheese over the part of the enchiladas covered by the sauce.
  • Cover loosely with tin foil and bake in the oven at Gas Mark 5 for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with salad, saffron rice and french stick.
  • To freeze individually place each enchilada on a piece of tin foil, add sauce, remove cocktail stick then wrap in the foil and place in the freezer.
  • To cook unwrap the enchilada while still frozen and place in a baking tin, let the enchilada defrost and then add grated cheese, cover with foil and cook at Gas Mark 5 for 30 minutes.
