Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 oz lean ground pork
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup mild salsa
  • 2 chipotle peppers minced (or 1/2 tsp/2 ml chipotle chili powder or hot pepper sauce)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small sweet green pepper diced
  • 1/2 tomato diced

Method

In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat; fry pork, breaking up with fork, until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Drain off fat; remove pork and set aside.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil; fry onion, garlic, cumin, ground coriander, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Return pork to pan. Add salsa and chipotle peppers; simmer, stirring, until thickened and saucy, about 3 minutes. Stir in fresh coriander.

Spoon one-quarter of the pork mixture onto centre of each tortilla; sprinkle evenly with cheese, green pepper and tomato. Fold bottom edge over filling, then sides; roll up.

Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until golden, about 7 minutes.
