Chorizo Style Mince with Sweet Potato

Mexican chorizo can be hard to find. Luckily, making your own is quick and easy. We have used pork mince. If you cannot find it, use a fresh pork fillet and chop it up in a food processor. Beef mince is an acceptable substitute.




To Serve

  • 4 - 6 soft wraps
  • Ina Paarman’s Coriander Pesto
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced into rings
  • 1 avocado, sliced (if in season)
  • 1 lime or lemon, cut into wedges



Steam the sweet potato cubes until tender. Season with Potato Spice.

Meanwhile place the oil, chilli, paprika, ground coriander and Garlic & Herb Seasoning in a frying pan. Stir and cook gently while stirring to develop the aroma of the spices for about 1 minute.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the garlic, vinegar and sugar. Return pan to medium high heat, add minced pork. Mash and mix meat with a wooden spoon until spice mixture is evenly incorporated. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes.

Add the Sun-dried Tomato Coat & Cook Sauce. Add cooked sweet potatoes and lightly stir through. Cover with a lid and warm through for ± 5 minutes.

Spread each wrap with Coriander Pesto. Spoon mince filling into the centre of each tortilla. Top with onion rings and avocado. Squeeze over a little lime juice.



Instead of sweet potato, use the kernels from 2 meilies.
