Yup, it’s another Mexican recipe. I told you we love Mexican food! It has become so popular in England in recent years, but most people are turning to Old el Paso to make easy Mexican food. By doing that, you are turning a pretty healthy meal into an fairly unhealthy one with the seasoning packet that has way too much salt in it. Make the seasoning yourself using the recipe below. You could use chicken, beef or prawns instead of the beans if you like.
Serves 2 – Cooking time: 45 minutes
- 2 peppers (one red and one green), sliced
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 courgette, chopped
- 10 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 carton of passata/tomato sauce
- Mexican seasoning (1tsp cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp paprika, 1tsp onion power, 1 tsp garlic granules, 1tsp fructose sugar – you could use normal sugar, 2tsp chipotle flakes or 1 tsp chili powder (make it as spicy or mild as you like).)
- 1/2 tin pinto beans
- 4 small whole wheat tortillas
- 3 tbsp 0% fage Greek yogurt
- 50g reduced fat cheese
1) Heat some fry-light in a pan and cook the peppers, onion, mushrooms and courgettes until softened – about 7 minutes.
2) Pour in 3/4 of the passata carton onto the veg and add all the spices of the seasoning.
3) Add the beans and cook for 5 minutes
4) Add half of the remaining passata to the bottom of a ovenproof dish
5) Take one of the tortillas and add some of the vegetable and bean mix.
6) Roll it up like a burrito and lay fold down in the dish
7) Repeat with the other four tortillas
8) Spread the yoghurt over the top of the rolled up tortillas.
9) If there is any left over vegetable and bean mix, put it on top of the yogurt
10) Pour over the left over passata
11) Sprinkle over the cheese
12) Bake for 30 minutes at 200C
