  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the meatballs on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 12-15 mins until piping hot and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 mins until starting to soften. Add the peppers, cumin and season with pepper and cook for 10-15 mins until softened. Set aside.

  3. In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork, then add the lime juice and season to taste. Heat the tortillas according to the pack instructions

  4. To assemble, place a little gem lettuce down the centre of each tortilla, then top
    with the onion and pepper mixture. Add two meatballs to each tortilla and a little avocado. Scatter with cheese (if using) and chilli. Serve two tortillas per person, along with the lime wedges to squeeze over.

Tip: Griddle the tortillas in a hot griddle pan for 30 seconds to 1 min for extra flavour.
