Step 4

When the peppers are a bit softer, add the mushrooms to the mixture.

Mushrooms need less time to cook than the other vegetables.

Step 5

Whilst the mixture cooks, ask an adult to help you warm the tortillas in the oven.

They don't need to be in the oven for long – 5 minutes should be enough to warm them nicely.

Step 6

When the tortillas are ready spoon the mixture onto them, making a line or strip down the middle.

Add some crunchy bean sprouts.

Step 7
