Tex-Mex Style Burrito

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup salsa (fresh or pre-made - both work well)
  • 1 cup grilled capsicum
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded cooked meat/meat alternative (chicken, beef or pork - Quorn meats work well too)
  • 6 large tortilla or wraps
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (leftover rice is great)
  • 1/4 cups shredded coriander
  • Optional: 1 cup shredded cheese
  • Optional: avocado to serve

Method

  • Add onion and oil to a large pan and cook until soft.
  • Add corn, capsicum and coriander in the pan and stir until well combined.
  • Combine your choice of meat, beans and rice and cook until cooked through. Allow the mixture to rest for 2-3 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat up the salsa in a separate sauce pan.
  • Heat tortillas over a hot pan or grill for 30 seconds on each side to make them easier to fold.
  • Fill the middle of the tortilla with the meat and rice mixture, then add salsa, cheese and avocado.
  • Fold the ends of the wrap over the filling and roll so that you have a nice parcel.
  • We recommend pressing the tortilla into a sandwich press or hot pan to seal the edges and ensure it doesn't come undone!
