  • 8 fresh flour tortillas
  • Coriander leaves, to garnish
  • For the tomato-chilli sauce
  • 1 x 400 g can whole tomatoes in juice
  • 1 fresh red chilli, split
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3-4 T chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 T olive oil
  • For the cheese filling, combine
  • 180 g grated mozzarella
  • 180 g grated mature Cheddar
  • 180 g crumbled feta
  • 250 g low-fat plain cream cheese

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

To make the tomato-chilli sauce: Blend the tomatoes with the juice. Transfer to a wide pan and simmer over a high heat. After 5 minutes, reduce the heat and add the chilli, garlic and a pinch of salt.

Simmer for about 15 minutes or until reduced to a suitable sauce consistency. Discard the chilli and add the chopped coriander and olive oil. Simmer for a few minutes and check seasoning.

To assemble: Place a tortilla on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and spread with a layer of thick cheese filling. Top with a second tortilla. Repeat in layers to the thickness you require but leave the top tortilla plain. Spoon over the tomato-chilli sauce.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until heated through and the cheese fi lling is melting. Carefully slide on to a serving plate.

Allow to stand for about 5 minutes before slicing with a sharp knife. Garnish with coriander and serve hot.
