I love Mexican food, but it can be tricky to get it just perfect. I’ve tried tons of Mexican wrap and burrito recipes but never before have I found the perfect mix of ingredients, until now. This delicious take on a burrito can be whipped together in 15-minutes, and there are some hacks you can employ to make that even quicker!
What you’ll need:
400g of black beans in water
400g of kidney beans in water
1 red onion
1 red pepper
200g halloumi cheese
50g grated cheddar
8 large tortilla wraps
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon paprika
250g mix of brown basmati & wild rice
What to do:
- Finely chop your red onion, red pepper and halloumi (halloumi should be in tiny pieces too).
- Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large saucepan and lightly fry the onions, pepper and halloumi for a 3-4 minutes.
- Drain your kidney beans, black beans and sweetcorn. Make sure you run some clear cold water over the beans and corn too.
- Add the beans and corn to the saucepan along with a teaspoon of cumin and paprika. The halloumi should provide enough salt, but if you want a little extra then add in now.
- Using a fish slice, stir the ingredients together every few minutes, using the slice to cut up and larger pieces of halloumi into fine bite-size chunks.
- To make this dish even quicker, use pre-boiled rice. My favourite is the Tilda Brown Basmati and Wild Rice. Microwave for 2 minutes and voila!
- Once the beans have been cooking for a further 7-8 minutes, take the pan off the heat.
- Heat a large griddle or frying pan on a medium heat and warm up your tortillas – just a minute on each side.
- Put together your burritos by placing an inch-width line of grated cheese down the middle of the wrap. Cover the inch strip with a healthy serving of your filling, adding a few drops of lime juice in too.
- Then roll the burrito together, fold the ends in and slice across the middle.
If you’ve got extra filling left-over, you can serve a couple of spoons of it alongside your wrap, along with a dollop of delicious guacamole. Or, pack it up for a warm and filling lunch for the day after. Enjoy!
