  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and sauté the red pepper until soft. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the Nando’s hot sauce and heat through.
  2. Add the basic bolognaise and the fresh coriander and remove from the heat. Season to taste, if necessary.

  5. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
  6. Serve with guacamole, sour cream and chopped chillies.
