25 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

This is a fantastic way to use up any leftover chicken (or turkey) meat from a roast! You could also replace the meat with prawns, or keep it veggie. Don’t skip the spicy mayo, as it’s an essential accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 4 handfuls cooked chicken (or turkey meat), cut into thin strips
  • 4 handfuls low moisture mozzarella (e.g. not buffalo), grated
  • 1 red peppers, sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced
  • 165g canned sweetcorn (drained weight)
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 4 generous tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Sriracha, to taste
