- Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 1.5L (6-cup) capacity ovenproof dish with oil. Boil, steam or microwave pumpkin until tender. Drain.

- Add pumpkin, kidney beans and corn to the sauce and stir to combine. Reserve 11⁄3 cups (330ml) bean mixture. Cool remaining mixture slightly and stir in cheese.
- Warm tortillas following packet instructions. Lay tortillas on a flat surface. Spoon bean and cheese mixture down the centre of each tortilla. Roll to enclose filling. Place tortillas, seam-side up, in prepared dish and cover with foil. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until hot.
- Stir reserved bean mixture in frying pan over low heat until hot. Serve tortillas topped with the reserved bean mixture and coriander.
