Ok so hands up you got me, burritto’s are not exactly gourmet cuisine, but if you’ve been at work all day, and have little time to prepare for guests, sometimes this is perfectly acceptable. After all, if it’s healthy and fresh, there can’t be too many complaints really, can there? I have in the past spent a lot of time in preparing for having guests over, but as time has gone on the easiest and most enjoyable nights are the ones, that seemed almost efortless.

Here is a quick recipe for speedy burritto’s!

Mood Food Burrito’s!

  1. 250g of Minced Beef or a packet of Quorn Mince
  2. 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  3. 1 tablespoon of Chili Powder
  4. 1/4 tablespoon of Oregano
  5. A good pinch of salt and pepper
  6. Half a glass of water
  1. 1 Packet of Wholemeal Flour Tortilla Wraps
  2. 2 Peppers sliced thinly
  3. 1 Red Onion sliced thinly
  4. Punnet of Cherry Tomatoes halfed
  5. 1 bag of mixed salad leaves
  6. 1 Tin of Sweet Corn
  7. Half a cucumber sliced thinly

The only real effort in this dish is the browning of the meat and the preperation, apart from that you might as well put your feet up and wait for the guests to arrive!

To start, brown the the meat in a large frying pan, and season with the garlic, chilli, oregano, salt and pepper. Add the half glass of water and let simmer for about 8 mins.

Prepare the vegetables and heat the flour tortilla’s.

And that’s it, serve everything on the table and people can assemble their own burritto to their taste!

    In the states these would be soft tacos. Burritos are usually baked, with the deep fried version called chimichangas. I actually have a tex-mex post lined up, as I find the Irish versions and US versions so completely different! These look yummy though!
