Preheat your oven to 220°C.Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion into half moons. Halve, then remove the core from the green pepper and thinly slice. Cut the chorizo stick in half lengthways, remove the skin and slice into ½cm wide half moons. Drain and rinse the black beans in a sieve. Finely chop the parsley (stalks and all). Grate the lime zest.


Heat a glug of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Add the chorizo, cook for 5 mins. Remove from the pan, set aside. Add the onion and pepper to the pan. Cook until soft, 5 mins. Stir in the tomato purée and fajita seasoning (use less if you don't like spice), cook for 1 minute more. Add the black beans, chorizo, water (amount specified in the ingredient list) and pop on a lid. Reduce the heat to medium, cook for 5 mins.


Once the 5 mins are up, remove the lid from your pan. Simmer until the liquid has almost evaporated, 3-4 mins, then remove from the heat. Roughly mash the mixture with a potato masher. Stir in the parsley and lime zest. Taste and season with salt and black pepper if needed. Lay the tortillas on a board (two per person), spoon the mixture down the centre of each, then roll them up into cylinders.


Drizzle a little oil over the bottom of an ovenproof dish, then lay in the tortillas. Pack them snugly side by side, with the folded edge downwards so they don't unroll. Spoon the crème fraîche over the top and then spread it out evenly. Grate the cheddar cheese and sprinkle on top, then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden brown, 15-18 mins.


Meanwhile, squeeze the lime juice into a large bowl. Add the honey and olive oil (amount specified in ingredient list). Season with salt and black pepper. Whisk together with a fork and your dressing is made! Halve the cucumber lengthways, scrape out the seeds with a teaspoon (discard the seeds) and chop the flesh into 1cm chunks.


When the enchiladas are cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly for 2 mins. Toss the baby leaf mix and cucumber in the dressing. Serve the chorizo enchiladas on plates with the salad alongside. Enjoy!
