1.Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan forced). Oil a large ovenproof dish.

3.Divide chicken mixture onto centre of tortillas, roll tortillas to enclose filling, folding in sides. Place burritos in dish, sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until browned lightly.

Mexican is a popular cuisine, especially with children. Cayenne pepper, however, is extremely hot so the amount used should be adjusted depending on whether you are cooking for adults or kids. You can use 1 cup thawed frozen corn kernels instead of canned, if you prefer. A large barbecued chicken weighing about 900g (1¾ pounds) should give you 3 cups of shredded chicken meat.
