Mexican Night: Tacquitos

Yes, I love Mexican food. And for good reason . . . this is yet another excellent addition to my repertoire- Tacquitos, which I think are a bit of a cross between burritos and enchiladas.

The three main ingredients are chilli, grated cheese and (store brought) burritos. I used a vegetarian chilli made with beans, chopped onions, capsicum and tomatoes, garlic, coriander, and because I like it to have a bit of a kick: chopped chilli and chilli sauce.

Spread 2-3 tablespoons of chilli across the middle of a tortilla and sprinkle with grated cheese. Then roll it up, as tight as possible without losing chilli out the sides and pop into a greased baking dish. Repeat until your dish is full.

Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 220 degrees
for 20 - 30 minutes until golden brown:

And serve with guacamole
(avocado, chopped tomato and red onion, lime juice and coriander)
