  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Step 3

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

Recipe tip

Serve with lime wedges.

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