Pulled pork & bean enchiladas
Mix some pulled pork with a drained 400g can of black beans and stuff tortillas with the mixture. Pour over passata mixed with taco seasoning, grate over some cheese and bake until the cheese melts.


  1. Put the pork in a large, lidded ovenproof dish with the remaining ingredients and mix well to coat. If you can, chill and marinate overnight.

  2. Heat the oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. Put the lid on the dish and cook on the middle shelf for 4 hrs. Check after 2 hrs and spoon over the juices. Check the meat is tender by pulling it apart with two forks. If it resists, cook for 1-2 hrs more.

  3. Mix the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and warm the tacos. Shred the pork and remove any fat or sinew. Serve with the cabbage, avocado, soured cream and salsa.
