- 1–2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
- Dried chilli flakes, generous pinch
- Small bunch thyme leaves plucked
- 400g chopped tomatoes
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp sunflower oil
- 4 British Lion eggs
- 4 tortillas, warmed according to packet instructions
- Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the onion, pepper and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions are softened but not coloured.
