Method

  1. Fry the onion in half the olive oil for about 5 mins or until soft. Stir through the garlic and cumin. Cook over a low heat for 1 min more. Add the tomato purée, pinto beans and a few tbsp of water. Heat through, then mash up with the back of a fork and season.

  2. Meanwhile, toss the courgette slices in the remaining oil with some seasoning. Place on a hot griddle pan and cook for a couple of mins each side until tender and grill marked. Place to one side.

  3. Mix the cheese, chilli and coriander in a bowl. Spread the bean purée over half of the tortillas. Lay over courgette slices and scatter with cheese mixture. Top with the remaining tortillas, pressing the two together. Cook in batches in the hot griddle pan, carefully turning, for about 1-2 mins each side or until the cheese has begun to melt and the tortillas are crisp. Serve in wedges.

A really great recipe: Cheap ingredients, simple to cook, but filling and flavourful. I served mine with salad and had them for dinner, very tasty, will make again.

I added the juice of a lime for acidity, and because it goes so well with chilli and coriander. Yum.

delicious! really simple great flavours. I didnt have cumin so i used some old el taco fajita spice mix on the onions and courgettes.. bit of a cheat i know! also used refried beans rather than pinto. so easy and quick will certainly be making it again and would even be good for veggie dinner party

Delicious recipe for using up courgettes. We didn't change the recipe much apart from using slightly less oil. Will become a firm favourite!

Followed the recipe exactly and these were extremely tasty!! Although I would allow a bit longer for the courgette slices to get tender than the recipe suggests. Will definitely be making this again.
