Hubby & I both love eating Mexican food and have tried quite a few different meals & variations. I have had burritos before (pre-made ones), but I made them myself for the first time when I received these goodies to review from Old El Paso. I was rather pleased with them considering I had never folded burritos before either, they are actually quite easy! These were yummy served with home-made garlic & chilli potato wedges, but they could just as easily be eaten on their own. The jalapeno relish from my review goes really well with them too.
Ingredients (makes 8)
- 250 g beef mince
- 1 onion, diced
- 75 g rice (dry weight), cooked as per instructions
- 1 tin black eyed beans
- 1 pack Old El Paso chilli mix
- 8 Old El Paso corn tortillas
- Preheat the oven to gas 4/350F/180C.
- Fry the mince & onion until mince is browned.
- Add the rice to the mince mixture and combine.
- Add the black eyed beans to the mince & rice mixture and combine well.
- Add the packet of chilli mix to the pan, mixing well – you may also need a little water to mix it all.
- Take one tortilla and place 2 tbsp of the mixture in the centre.
- Fold the bottom of the tortilla, so it just covers the mince/rice mixture.
- Take each side and fold them in (it’s a bit fiddly but easier after the first couple!).
- Fold the top of the tortilla down, then place fold down into a large deep baking tray.
- Keep making burritos until all tortillas are used.
- Top with a little grated cheese if you wish.
