Like Robert Downey Jr and Charlie Sheen, there are certain controversial dishes. But just as those two have dusted themselves off to reach new career heights, some badly behaved recipes can be saved.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, finely slice the red onion, dice the tomatoes, grate the Cheddar cheese, pick the coriander leaves, and slice the lime into wedges.

Heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the red onion and mild Mexican seasoning and cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes, or until soft. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 4-5 minutes, or until browned. Add the remaining Mexican seasoning if your family likes the flavour. Stir through the tomato paste and warm water. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 7-8 minutes until the water has reduced and the sauce has thickened.

While the mince is simmering, brush the wholemeal Lebanese breads with a little olive oil (or use a spray oil) and then cut into triangles. Place the triangles on a lined oven tray. (Note: you may need to two trays for this.) Cook for 7 minutes in the oven, or until golden (watch they don’t burn!).
