  1. In a deep flameproof casserole dish, cook the onions in the oil for 8 mins until soft. Add the cumin and cook for 1 min more. Stir in the mince and add a bit more oil, if needed. Turn up the heat and cook for 4-6 mins, stirring occasionally, until the mince is browned.

  2. Stir in the chipotle paste, tomatoes and half a can of water, and simmer for 5 mins. Mix in the beans and sweetcorn, and cook for a few mins more until thick, piping hot and the mince is cooked.

  3. Heat the grill. Take the pan off the heat and put the tortilla triangles randomly on top. Scatter over the cheese and grill for a few mins until the topping is crisp, taking care that it doesn’t burn. Sprinkle with the spring onions and serve.

I'm so fed up with these recipes that claim to give you a calorie count but don't show weights for ALL ingredients. Saying '2 onions' is useless: how big are the onions included in the count? What does 'a small handful' mean? Whose hand? What size are the corn tortillas? You can get them with a diameter of 10-25cm. If you expect the calorie count to be accurate then the quantities need to be accurate. That means WEIGHT. Not volume or an item count. SO frustrating!

Really tasty , quick and simple. Pimped up the sauce a bit with some smokey honey BBQ sauce and jalepeno ketchup, just coz it was in the cupboard, but helped with the depth of flavour. Needed plenty of seasoning for me too. Didn't have any flour tortillas but had packet of tortilla chips, which worked fine. Everyone ate it all and enjoyed, even fussy son, so will be making this one again.

Delicious. All the family loved it, especially combination of the grilled cheese and spring onions with the tortilla topping. I added a rehydrated chipotle chilli, dark chocolate chunk and a chicken stock cube.... turned out a little too spicy for my boys but otherwise a big hit.

Really tasty and quick midweek meal. I used chopped toms with onion and garlic and replaced the 2 onions in the recipe with an orange pepper. It was a bit spicy for my youngest, but everyone else loved it. (Didn't need the water either - will miss that out next time).

Yum and so easy to make, added a bit of cayenne pepper and a splash of tabasco sauce for extra spice and served with some low fat creme fraiche, definitely one to cook again!

Absolutely loved this recipe! Followed it almost exactly although I added a bit extra chipotle and doubled the tortillas. I'll definitely be cooking it again and can easily seeing it becoming a regular mid-week dinner in our house!

Delicious! Chipotle paste lovely and gave so much flavour. Will be a regular diet addition. Chipotle paste with spices in Asda.

I found this a brilliant recipe. I used organic minced beef. Delicious. Very quick to cook and served it with garlic bread. Will be great as part of a buffet for a crowd along with Enchilladas etc.

This was okay as a mid-week meal, but was nothing special.

I don't know whether I got a bad batch of chipotle paste, but I wasn't at all impressed with the turkey chilli: made in accordance with the recipe, it tasted of nothing other than tomatoes. With the addition of another two tbsp of chipotle paste, some cayenne pepper, thyme and lots of seasoning, it's not too bad, but I'm still not sure I'd bother with the recipe again. The cheesy tortilla topping is nice, though, and I'll probably use that on my usual chilli recipe in future.

This was a hit with the hubby. I used black beans instead of red kidney beans, and added some extra passata, and salt and pepper.
