Method

  1. To make the tomato sauce, heat 1 tbsp olive in a frying pan and cook the onion until soft. Add the garlic and cinnamon stick, cook for 1 min, then add the passata and oregano. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 mins with the lid off, to thicken a little. 
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. In a large saucepan, fry the chorizo sausages over a medium heat, turning once to brown both sides. Remove and set aside. Add the chopped peppers and red onion to the pan and cook over a medium high heat for 5-8 mins until the veg starts to soften. Add the cumin and cook for 1 min, then remove from the heat and stir in the sausages and 4 tbsp of the tomato sauce. 
  3. Lay out the wraps and divide the sausage mixture between them. Roll the wraps and place in an ovenproof baking dish. Pour over the tomato sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until the cheese is golden and the tomato sauce bubbling. 
  4. To serve, top with jalapenos, avocado, coriander and sour cream, or serve with those ingredients on the side.
