In a small non-stick pan add the oil and garlic cook on medium for a minute or two and add the chilli flakes, cumin and paprika, stir to combine and cook for a further minute.


Add the mince and cook for a few minutes to combine. It will start to dry and stick a little to the pan. Add ¼ of the stock allow to bubble and deglaze whilst stirring until it evaporates, add more stock and repeat until you have no stock remaining.


Finally stir in the fresh diced jalapeno and cook for another minute. Remove from the heat and set aside.


To make the avocado crema, add everything to a small bowl or food processor and blitz until smooth. Check for seasoning. You can use a stick blender also.


In a dry pan add 1 tortilla wrap, sprinkle cheese on one half top with mince and another layer of cheese, fold over and cook on medium until the bottom is crisp and the cheese if melting. Flip and cook on the side for a few minutes.


Remove and cut into 3 wedges, repeat with the remain tortilla.
