Directions:

  1. To make the sauce, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion about 8 minutes, until golden. Stir in the garlic, then the chili powder and cumin. Add the stock and tomato paste and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). To prepare the filling, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onion and red pepper for 5 minutes, until tender.
  3. Lightly oil a 2qt (2 liter) baking dish. Spread each tortilla with a spoonful of sauce. Top with equal amounts of the filling and about 3 tbsp cheese. Roll up each tortilla and place in the dish.
  4. Spread the remaining sauce over the tortillas, and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese has melted.
