  • Ingredients

    For the filling:
    • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
    • 150g smoked rashers, chopped in bite-size pieces
    • 400g sirloin steak, cut into cubes
    • 1 large onion, diced into bite-size chunks
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 100g mushrooms, thickly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 red bell pepper, diced in bite-size chunks
    • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced in bite-size chunks
    • 1 green bell pepper, diced in bite-size chunks
    • Salt & pepper to taste
    • 80g Manchego cheese, finely grated
    To serve:
    • Corn Tortillas
    • Salsa of your choice
  • Method

    • Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan at high heat. Add the smoked rashers and pan fry it on high heat until the rashers release all their fat and they start to brown up a little. Add the meat, season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes until the meat begins to brown.
    • Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and mix well. Add the Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 2 minutes before adding the peppers. Cook for further 3 minutes stirring regularly. The peppers must still have a bit of a bite.
    • Switch off the heat and add the cheese mixing well so it melts through. Serve in warm corn tortillas with a drizzle of the salsa of your choice.
