Finely chop the onion, garlic, and sauté them in 1 ½ tbsp of oil until translucent. Clean the chicken breasts and cut them lengthwise. Season the meat with salt, pepper, chilli, ground cumin and 1 tsp of ground paprika. Place the prepared chicken in the pan with the onion and garlic. Cook the chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides, then add water and rinsed beans. Simmer everything together for about 5 minutes. Afterwards, shred the chicken into smaller pieces using a fork, return it to the pan, and mix well.

Fill the tortillas with the prepared mixture, roll them up, and place them side by side in a smaller baking dish. In the oil left on the pan, sauté the remaining sweet paprika, then add the tomato passata and season with salt, ground black pepper, and let it come to a boil. Pour the prepared sauce over the tortillas, and sprinkle them with coarsely grated cheese.
