1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic

6 corn tortillas

80g cheddar/ mozzarella cheese, grated

½ tsp paprika

Add the onions and garlic to a pan with the diced rump steak. Cover with water and cook for about for approximately fifteen minutes until the beef is tender

Drain any water and shred the steak into smaller strips.

To make the salsa: Add the diced tomato to a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Place in the oven for about 35 minutes until the tomatoes are soft.

Allow them to cool slightly, and then remove the skins. Deseed the chillies that have been left.

Add the garlic to a dry frying pan until golden.

Place the chillies, garlic and chillies into a blender until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients (sugar, paprika, lime juice, spring onion and the oregano) Blend for a few seconds.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave or in the oven until heated.

Add the beef mixture evenly to the tortillas and roll into tubes. Pour the salsa over the wraps and sprinkle generously with grated cheese. Place under the grill for 5-8 minute until the cheese melts.

Serve with guacamole or sour cream.
