Method

  1. Warm the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the mince and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon, until well browned.
  2. Add the rice and spinach, and mix well. Cover and cook for a further 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the spinach has defrosted. Stir in the beans and their sauce. Season.
  3. Divide the beef mixture between the warmed tortillas, spooning it along the centre of each one. Scatter over the cheddar. Roll up the tortillas, tucking in the ends to stop the filling from falling out. Cut in half at a slight angle and serve with the yogurt swirled with chilli sauce, if using.
