Spiced Pork Tortillas
Spiced Pork Tortillas

Tortilla means little 'torta' or little cake in Spanish. In Mexico they are called Enchiladas - corn flour flatbreads, rolled around a meat filling and served with a chilli based salsa over the top.

Tortillas make great camping fare and are one of those simple one dish meals that become family favourites.

Reduce the chilli to your own taste.

Any meat can be substituted for the pork fillet - chicken breast, beef or lamb are ideal.

While the pork cooks prepare the salsa by heating 2 tablespoons of olive in a frypan.

Add the cumin seeds and fry for 30 seconds and then add the red onion.

Cook for 2 minutes and add the diced capsicum.

Add the chopped tomatoes, ground coriander, coriander leaves and brown sugar.

Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Heat the tortillas as per the packet instructions or slap them on the BBQ plate for 30 seconds a side.

Slice the pork fillet thinly and lay down the centre of each tortilla

Ladle the salsa alongside, followed by the cheese, spinach and jalapeños

Roll 'em up and eat 'em.


Left over Chilli Con Carne can be used as a substitute filling for the pork while thinly rolled Naan Bread makes a great tortilla wrap.
