  • 300g jar Asda Tex Mex Hot Salsa
  • 400g can red kidney beans, drained
  • 4 Asda Wraps
  • 180g can Asda Tuna in Brine, drained well
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 100g mature Cheddar, grated
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Sour cream, to serve
  • Salad, to serve
  • Put half the jar of salsa in a bowl with half the beans and mash roughly with a fork. Lay the wraps on a work surface and spread the bean mixture over one half, leaving a 2cm gap round the edge.

  • Flake the tuna and scatter on the top with the spring onions, cheese and coriander, reserving a sprinkling of spring onions and cheese. Fold over to make a crescent-shaped turnover and press the edges firmly together.

  • Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook as many of the turnovers as you can fit in easily, for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, pressing them down with a spatula as they cook. Keep them warm while you cook the rest, adding more oil when necessary.

  • Serve with sour cream and salad, along with the rest of the salsa and beans, and scatter the reserved spring onions and cheese on top.
