Ingredients

 

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the kidney beans, spring onions, cucumber and salsa. Stir in the chopped coriander and season to taste with black pepper.
  2. Heat the tortillas for a few minutes on a hot griddle pan or in a preheated moderate oven, or for 15 seconds in a microwave – they should be warmed through, not charred or too dry.
  3. Spread the yoghurt over the warm tortillas and cover with shredded lettuce. Divide the bean and salsa mixture between them.
  4. Roll up the tortillas and serve with guacamole and some crisp salad or grilled vegetables.

Tip: To make these tortillas even more spicy, you can add some finely chopped chilli to the bean and salsa mixture.
