  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Lightly oil a medium-sized ovenproof dish, roughly 25 x 15 x 5cm deep, with ½ tbsp oil.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the chicken and fry for 5 mins, tossing frequently, until lightly golden. Add the peppers and onions and fry for 5 mins, then stir through the paprika, cumin, spinach, sweetcorn and coriander
  3. Use 2 of the tortilla wraps to line the ovenproof dish so they hang over the edge. Fill with the chicken mix and sprinkle over the cheese. Fold over the tortilla overhang and top with the remaining 2 tortillas, tucking underneath to seal. Brush over the remaining ½ tbsp oil.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden and slightly crisp. Cut into 4 and serve in slices with a crisp salad and tomatoes on the side.
