  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C. Once the oven is heated and bean mixture cooking, warm the tortilla boats for 5-8 minutes until firm but not crunchy. Remove, set aside and turn the oven onto a high grill.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy based fry pan or pot, cook the onion and garlic until soft, 3-4 minutes. Add the drained beans, sieved tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and cumin powder and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the red pepper and courgette, cook for a further 3-4 minutes until warmed through.
  4. Spoon the bean mixture evenly into the tortilla boats, sprinkle with cheese and place under the grill until melted, keeping an eye on them as they can burn quite quickly.
  5. Serve immediately with extra coriander and sour cream on top and salad or steamed veggies on the side if desired. For gluten free option, serve on cauliflower rice.
