Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Cook all aromatics, except for the fresh coriander and mint, in oil with the onion until fragrant.

Add the tomato paste and cook for a further 2 minutes stirring the pot.

Add the chicken mince and the tomatoes and cook for half an hour or until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has reduced.

Season the mix with salt, pepper and sugar to taste.

Add the fresh coriander and mint.

To assemble the burrito, set your oven to 180°.

Lay the tortilla flat on the bench and smear with 1 heaped tablespoon of sour cream.

Spoon 4 tablespoons of chicken mix down the centre of the tortilla and strewn with tasty cheese and roll.

Place on a tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until the tortilla is golden and crunchy and the inside is hot and gooey. Serve with chilli jam and fresh lime cheeks on the side.
