Preheat your oven to 200°C. Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil). Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve. Once the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Stir only twice during this time - you want the sweetcorn to pick up some nice colour. Transfer to a medium bowl.


Meanwhile, halve the baby plum tomatoes. Halve the lime. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain and rinse the kidney beans. Transfer half of the beans to another bowl and mash gently with the back of a fork. Grate both types of cheese. Add the chorizo to the (now empty) pan and fry until it starts to brown, 3-4 mins. When cooked, transfer the chorizo to another small bowl and keep aside (but keep the oil it has released in the pan).


Add the diced chicken thigh to the pan, season with salt and pepper and stir-fry until the chicken is browned, 5-6 mins. Add the garlic and cook for a further min. Next, add the chipotle paste (add less if you don't like too much heat), tomato puree, water for the chicken (see ingredients for amount), chicken stock paste and beans (whole and crushed). Stir together, bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened, 3-4 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging. The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle.


Meanwhile, pop a medium saucepan on medium heat. Add the creme fraiche along with the water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount). Stir to combine then bring to the boil. Add the grated cheese. Continuously stir until the cheese has melted and it has come together to make a creamy sauce, 1-2 mins. Then take off the heat.


Once the chicken filling has thickened, remove the pan from the heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Spoon it down the middle of each tortilla (two per person). Roll up the tortillas, place them snugly in a lightly-oiled, appropriately-sized ovenproof dish, seam-side down. Pour the cheese sauce all over the top of the rolled tortillas. Scatter over the chorizo, then bake your enchiladas on the top shelf of your oven until golden brown, 10-12 mins.


In the meantime, trim the root from the baby gem lettuce, halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways. Pop the tomatoes and baby gem into the bowl with the charred sweetcorn. Drizzle over a little oil, squeeze in some lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Mix together, taste and add more seasoning or lime if needed. Cut any remaining lime into wedges. When the enchiladas are ready, divide them between your plates and serve with the charred corn salad and lime wedges alongside. Enjoy!
