Ingredient List

  • 20g butter, melted
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Stand ‘N Stuff™ Mini Soft Tortilla Boats
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 250g lean beef mince
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 x 344g jar Old El Paso™ Cooking Sauce for Enchiladas
  • 75ml water
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Sliced Green Jalapeños, drained and chopped
  • 60g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C for fan assisted ovens), gas mark 5.
  2. Brush the melted butter all over the mini tortillas and place in a large rectangular ovenproof dish. Bake for 5-8 minutes until brown and firm to the touch. The tortillas will crisp slightly as they cool.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes then add the garlic and beef and cook for 5 minutes, stirring all the time, until the beef is browned. Drain off any excess fat.
  4. Stir in the jalapeños, enchilada sauce and water and simmer for a further 10 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the tortillas and top with the grated cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve garnished with chopped spring onions.
