Equipment

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350°F.
  • To make the sauce, heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion. Fry for 5 minutes or so, until they soften.
  • Now, add the garlic, cumin, paprika, oregano, and chilli powder, stir it into the onions, and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  • Add the passata, honey, and red wine vinegar, stir well and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens. Once ready, transfer to a blender and blitz up until smooth.
  • Meanwhile, heat coconut oil in a separate pan and add the remaining onions and pepper.
  • Fry for 5 minutes, remove and set aside.
  • Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper, and fry until cooked through.
  • Add the cooked onions and pepper  to the pan, followed by ½ of your blended enchilada sauce. Stir the sauce into the rest of the pan and remove from heat.
  • To make your enchiladas, add two big spoons of chicken filling to the tortilla wraps and roll them.
  • Transfer to a baking tray, top with remaining enchilada sauce and grated cheddar.
  • Bake your enchiladas for 15 minutes. Garnish with coriander.

*For the paprika - you can use plain, smoked or hot*

**If you wish to make it hotter add more chilli powder**
