Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6
Cooking Time: 12 minutes
  • 30ml - olive oil
  • 1 - bunch spring onions, chopped
  • 1 - clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 - green jalapeño chilli, finely chopped
  • 5ml - each coriander, cumin and paprika
  • 500g - pork mince
  • 90ml - fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 - plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 750ml - grated cheese (mozzarella and white cheddar)
  • 6 - medium tortillas
  • - guacamole and sour cream, to serve

1 Heat 15ml of the oil in a frying pan and sauté the spring onions, garlic, chilli, spices and mince together until golden brown, breaking up the meat continually with a spatula until crumbly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the coriander.

2 Place the tortillas on a work surface and spread a little of the mince mixture onto one half of each, top with the tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese. Fold the tortillas into a half-moon shape.

3 Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the folded tortillas, one at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Use two spatulas to help you turn them over. 

Order your pork mince from your butcher or supermarket beforehand. Use it on the same day, or vacuum pack and store in the freezer.
