Ingredients

  • 4 tortillas
  • 200 g vegan ground beef
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 chilli pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground all spice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 200 g vegan cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Warm a pan over medium/high heat, add a splash of oil and cook the onion, garlic and chili for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the vegan ground beef and cook this for 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomato puree and spices and stir well, cook for 1 minute and taste for salt. 
  • Lay the tortilla on a flat surface, cover half of it with some shreds of vegan cheese, the “ground meat” and more cheese and fold it close.
  • Warm a pan over medium/low heat and add a gentle splash of oil, place the tortilla, press lightly and cook with a lid until the bottom is brown and crisp.
  • Flip it, press gently and do the same to the other side without the lid.
  • Serve it as is or add some cilantro and sauce of choice. I used the blue garlic mayo from the cookbook. Enjoy!
