Burritos Baby!

Burritos (As I have already visited America and tried to tackle their humongous portions, I can well believe that these are indeed as big as your head! But don't worry mine are realisticly edible sizes!)

Where I work in Disney there is a Dinner Show called the Wild West Show with real cowboys and indians! One of the indians who works there makes the most fantastic (and HUGE!) burritos and sells them for only 5€ but the other day as I strolled over for a burrito fix I discovered much to my disappointment he is on holiday for a month. So I thought if he can do it so can I. So here’s my burrito recipe.


6 tortilla wraps
6 tblsp creme fraiche
200g grated cheese
500g minced beef/lamb/pork
1 small tin of tomato purée with meat
1 red pepper, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 small tin of sweetcorn
1 large onion
2 tsps cayenne pepper
1 tsp chilli purée or chopped chilli
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp salt
2 tsps worchestershire sauce
1 tblsp olive oil


1. Before starting the burritos, par boil* the carrots, drain and set to one side
2. Preheat the oven to 200°C
3. In a large shallow pan heat the olive oil
4. Add the onion, chilli and red pepper
5. Stir until the onions and peppers start to soften
6. Add the minced meat, cayenne pepper, paprika and salt
7. Stir constantly until the meat is beginning to brown
8. Add the tomato purée, carrots, sweetcorn and worchestershire sauce
9. Mix well together and leave to simmer for 5-10 mins
10. Meanwhile, lightly heat the tortilla wraps in the oven (see instructions on the packet as these may vary)
11. Once the tortilla are warmed, spread a tblsp of creme fraiche onto each
12. Fill the tortillas with the meat sauce, sprinkle over the grated cheese and wrap up!

Tip : You can wrap the bottoms in tin foil just to keep them together during consumption!!

I served with rice and a green salad.
