  • Start by making the enchilada sauce. Put the onion into a medium saucepan with the olive oil and cook over a low-medium heat for 7–8 minutes, or until soft and just starting to brown at the edges.
  • Add the crushed garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the smoked paprika, dried oregano, chilli powder and ground cumin, mix well and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  • Add the passata, brown sugar and vinegar to the pan, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook over a low–medium heat for 20 minutes until thickened slightly.
  • For the enchilada, heat half of the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the sliced onions and peppers and cook over a medium heat for about 3 minutes, or until just tender and starting to caramelise at the edges.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan, add the chicken and cook quickly over a medium heat until cooked through and golden brown.
  • Return the onion and pepper mixture to the pan, add half of the enchilada sauce, and drained kidney beans, season well and cook for a further minute.
  • Lay the flour tortillas on the work surface and divide the chicken mixture between them. Roll the flour tortillas around the filling into cigars and arrange neatly and snuggly in an ovenproof dish (roughly 20 x 30cm/8x 12in).
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the filling is piping hot and the cheese bubbling, melted and golden-brown.
  • To serve, scatter with the spring onions and chopped coriander and serve with sliced avocado and soured cream alongside.
