Ingredients

  • 1/2 quantity slow cooker bolognaise, thawed if frozen (see recipe below)
  • 2 tbs mild Mexican seasoning
  • 420g can black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 160g pkt roasted capsicum, coarsely chopped
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) tomato passata
  • 1 cup (120g) shredded tasty cheddar
  • 1 jalapeño chilli, sliced
  • Coriander sprigs, to serve
  • Light sour cream, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the bolognaise and cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until heated through. Add Mexican seasoning and cook for 1 min or until aromatic. Add the beans and capsicum and stir to combine. Season. Cook for 2-3 mins or until the mixture is heated through. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.

STEP 2

Divide mince mixture evenly among the tortillas. Fold the tortillas over to enclose the filling and arrange upright in a large baking dish. Pour over the passata and sprinkle with cheddar. Bake for 12-15 mins or until the cheddar melts and the tortillas are golden.

STEP 3

Sprinkle the tacos with chilli and coriander. Drizzle with sour cream. 

Serve with lime wedges

Swap me: For some added spice, swap the passata for Mexican salsa.
