Drain the pineapple and set the juice aside. Finely dice the pineapple and, in a bowl, mix it with chilli and coriander and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion, stirring occasionally until softened (about five minutes). Add the mince and stir, breaking up the lumps. Cook for five minutes, then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the sugar, tomato sauce and pineapple juice, and season to taste.

Cook for five minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice.

Heat the tortillas in the microwave or a pan, following directions on the packet. Divide the lettuce, mince mixture and pineapple salsa between the tortillas and serve.
