  • 4 Soft Tortillas
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Tin of Black Beans
  • 1 Bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 1 Lime
  • Diced Chorizo
  • Tomato Purée
  • Fajita Mix
  • Crème Fraîche
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Honey
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1 Baby Gem Lettuce
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 220. Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Halve, then remove the core from the green pepper and thinly slice. Drain and rinse the black beans in a sieve, then finely chop the parsley. Zest the lime.

  2. Heat a slug of oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add the chorizo. Cook for 5 mins then remove from the pan and set aside. Add the onion and pepper to the pan and cook for 5 mins until soft. Stir in the tomato purée and fajita mix (use as much as you want, to taste) and cook for a further minute. Add the black beans, chorizo and 125ml of water. Cover the pan with a lid (or plate if no lid available) and cook for 5 mins.

  3. Once cooked, remove the lid/plate and simmer for 3-4 mins, until the liquid has almost evaporated. Put the mixture into a bowl and roughly mash. Add the parsley and lime zest, then season with salt and pepper as required. Lay the tortillas on a chopping board, spoon the mixture into the centre of each (evenly across all 4 wraps) and roll them up into enchiladas.

  4. Drizzle a little oil into a baking tray/ovenproof dish and lay all of the tortillas into the tray, with the folded edge downwards so they don't unroll. Spoon the crème fraîche over the top and spread out evenly. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top then bake in the oven for 15-18 mins, until golden brown.

  5. Meanwhile, squeeze the lime juice into a bowl and add the olive oil and honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste and whisk together with a fork. Halve the cucumber lengthways, scrape out the seeds with a teaspoon and chop the flesh into chunks. Trim the root from the lettuce, then half lengthways and thinly slice widthways. Mix the lettuce and cucumber and cover with the dressing. Toss to complete your side salad.

  6. When the enchiladas are cooked, remove from your oven and leave to cool for 2 mins before serving. Serve 2 enchiladas per person with the citrus side salad.
