Blitz the bread to form fine bread­crumbs. Place in a large bowl with co­rian­der, onion, jalapeño, beef and tomato sauce. Sea­son with salt and pep­per, and crack the egg into the bowl. Us­ing your hands, com­bine the mix­ture well. Di­vide into 12 por­tions and roll into meat­balls. Ar­range on a tray and flat­ten into pat­ties. Re­frig­er­ate for about 15 min­utes or un­til ready to cook. To make the salsa, com­bine to­ma­toes, shal­lots, lime juice, chilli and co­rian­der in a bowl. Add salt, vine­gar and pep­per and stir through. Re­frig­er­ate un­til ready to serve. To make the gua­camole, add lime juice, sugar and some salt and pep­per to the avo­cado. Mash lightly so it’s still chunky and stir in the cheese. Cover with cling film (let it touch the sur­face of the mix­ture, to help pre­vent ox­i­da­tion), and re­frig­er­ate un­til needed. Heat oil in a large fry­ing pan over medium heat. Fry pat­ties for 3 min­utes on each side, press­ing down a lit­tle with a spat­ula, mak­ing sure the whole patty is in con­tact with the pan. Cook to pref­er­ence. Warm the tor­tilla wraps in a dry fry­ing pan un­til slightly soft­ened. Build your wrap with gua­camole, pat­ties, salsa and dol­lop of sour cream. Serve with na­cho chips on the side.
