3 tbsp olive oil

2 red onions, sliced

2 red peppers, sliced

3 red chillies, 2 deseeded and chopped, 1 sliced

Small bunch coriander, stalks finely chopped, leaves roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp ground coriander

1 tbsp cumin seeds

812g chicken fillets, cut into small chunks

415g tin refried beans

198g can sweetcorn, drained

700ml passata

1 tsp golden caster sugar

10 tortillas

2 x 142ml pots soured cream

200g cheddar, grated

250g rice to serve

Pinch of turmeric

In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and fry the onions, peppers, chopped chilli and coriander stalks with half of the garlic for 10 minutes until soft.

Stir in 2 teaspoons of ground coriander and 2 teaspoons of cumin seeds, then cook for 1 min more.

Meanwhile, in another frying pan, fry the chicken in the remaining oil, in batches, until browned then add it to the pan of vegetables as you go.

Stir the beans, sweetcorn, coriander leaves and 150ml of the passata into the vegetables and chicken.

In a bowl, mix the rest of the passata with the other crushed garlic clove, the remaining spices and the sugar, then set aside.

Cook the rice according to the instructions, add the pinch of turmeric (for colour). Drain and set aside.

To assemble, lay the tortillas onto a board and divide the chicken mixture between them, folding over the ends and rolling up to seal.

Divide the passata sauce into the dishes you are using, then top with the enchiladas.

Dot over the soured cream, sprinkle with grated cheese and scatter with the sliced chilli and coriander if desired.

Cool and freeze or, if eating straight away, heat oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6 then bake for 30 minutes.
