Mexican Burrito


Burritos are such a quick and easy dinner that i thought i should share them with you! I always used to make mine with chicken until i had them at a friends and she used mince – they were spicy and delicious! So now i use mince too. Perfect for those lazy weeknights…



6 flour tortillas
1 tbsp olive oil
250g beef mince
1 small onion, diced
1 sachet taco seasoning
1 tsp Piri Piri seasoning (or chilli powder)
1.5 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1/2 avocado, diced
1/2 tomato, diced
8 slices cucumber, diced
Tomato salsa, to serve
Sour cream, to serve


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

Start by frying off the onion and mince in the olive oil until cooked through. Mix the taco seasoning in 1 cup of water and pour over mince mixture, and add the Piri Piri seasoning. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow the sauce to thicken.

At this stage you can loosely wrap your tortillas in foil, and put them in the oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare your fillings by combining lettuce, tomato, cucumber and avocado in a bowl. Next grate your cheese and place that in a bowl also. Once the mince is ready put that in a serving bowl, along with another bowl for the salsa. Remove your tortillas from the oven and you are ready to assemble your burritos.
You can put as much or as little filling as you like. Don’t forget to top with sour cream!
