Mexican Style Tomatoes

Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Mexican StyleTomatoes are diced and blended, then seasoned for an authentic Mexican flavour.

Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C and lightly grease a round 23cm shallow ovenproof dish.
Step 2
Heat a dash of oil in a non-stick frying pan and brown mince. Add onion and capsicum and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
Step 3
Stir in Wattie’s Mild Chilli Beans, Wattie’s Tomato Paste, Wattie’s Mexican Style Tomatoes and parsley and cook for a further 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir.
Step 4
Spread a third of the cooked mince and bean mixture over the bottom of the ovenproof dish and lay one tortilla on top. Spread a third of the cottage cheese over the tortilla then sprinkle with a third of each of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat twice more so you have 3 layers.
Step 5
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is golden.
