  1. To make the jalapeño sauce, put all the sauce ingredients into a small food processor and blitz until smooth. Season to taste and set aside.
  2. Put the tomatoes, shallots and coriander stalks in a bowl. Mix together the ketchup, red wine vinegar and chipotle paste until well combined, then add to the bowl and toss to combine. Season and set aside.
  3. Mist a nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and set over a medium heat. Add the beef mince and cook for 5 minutes until browned. Stir in the garlic salt, paprika, cumin and chilli powder, cook for 30 seconds, then add the tomato purée with 200ml of water. Cook, stirring, for 6-8 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the black beans and coriander leaves, then season to taste.
  4. Put the lettuce leaves out onto a serving board or platter and divide the beef mixture between them. Top with the tomato salsa, drizzle over the jalapeño sauce and serve with the lime wedges.
