  • 2 tblsp chilli oil
  • 1 tblsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tblsp paprika
  • pinch of caster sugar
  • grated rind and juice of 1 lime
  • 4 skinless turkey breast fillets (cut into strips)
  • 2 tblsp sunflower oil
  • 1 red onion (halved and sliced)
  • 1 red pepper (halved, seeded and thinly sliced)
  • 1 yellow pepper (halved, seeded and thinly sliced)
  • 8 soft corn or soft flour tortillas
  • 50 g cheddar cheese (grated)
  • for the chilli sauce:
  • 2 tblsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 red chilli (seeded and finely chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp each sweet or smoked paprika, ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes (in rich tomato juice)
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Mix together the chilli oil, chilli powder, paprika, sugar and the lime rind and juice in a shallow non-metallic dish. Add the turkey to the chilli mixture and stir until well coated, then cover with clingfilm and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  • To make the chilli sauce, heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion for 6-8 minutes until golden. Stir in the garlic, chilli, paprika, cumin and coriander and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the tomatoes and lemon juice and season to taste. Simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until slightly reduced and thickened.
  • To prepare the turkey filling, heat the sunflower oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the sunflower oil and sauté the onion and peppers for about 5 minutes until softened and just beginning to catch around the edges. Tip in the marinated turkey and continue to sauté for 3-4 minutes until the turkey is just tender and cooked through.
  • Use the turkey and pepper mixture to fill the tortillas, then roll up and lay side by side in an ovenproof dish. Spoon over the tomato sauce and scatter the cheese on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until bubbling and golden brown. Serve straight to the table with a separate bowl of salad and allow guests to help themselves.
