It’s Wednesday and the weather is taking a turn for the better here in Manchester. The last few days have been rain, wind and more rain for good luck. My birthday is in 5 days (not that I’m counting), and I’m just praying for sunshine.
On Monday, Sam and I did our weekly shop and it was safe to say that salad wasn’t on the menu, it was way too cold and miserable. Instead I made these beefy, cheesy, Mexican crunch wraps- the perfect cheat meal.
These aren’t healthy, but they are delicious and super filling. These would be a great addition to a family night in or even a games day, and they only take 15 minutes to make!
Serves: 6-8 wraps Prep Time: 15 minutes
- 500g Lean Beef Mince
- 2 tsp Cayenne
- 2 tsp Paprika
- 2 tsp Garlic
- 2 tsp Cumin
- 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 16 Cheese Slices (or cheddar)
- Half Head Romaine Lettuce
- 8 Cherry Tomatoes, Chopped
- Sour Cream (Sour Cream with Chives also works with this)
- Chilli Heatwave Doritos
- 8 Tortilla Wraps
- Heat up a pan and add a little oil, add in the mince and spices, and cook down and add a couple of tomatoes for extra flavour. Add balsamic vinegar.
- To assemble the wraps, first cut off an inch wide section from the top of the wraps, you’ll use these later. Layer a cheese slice, mince, lettuce, tomatoes, doritos, sour cream and another cheese slice. Make sure not to over fill the wraps as they might split.
- To wrap the wraps- place the small piece of tortilla in the center of the wrap, then fold the tortilla over into the centre to create a pentagon/ circle shape. Essentially you want this to be wrapped up like a little parcel. Once you’ve wrapped it up, turn it upside down and repeat.
- You can grill these in 2 ways: If you have a George Foreman Grill, then just pop them in and grill for 2 minutes on each side.If not, heat up a frying pan with some oil and place your wraps in face down (so the side you wrapped is touching the pan). Take a spatula and press down on the wraps and cook for a couple of minutes, then flip over once browned and repeat on the other side. You want to really press down with your spatula to allow the cheese to melt into the meat.
- Serve alone or with your favourite dips!
