Mexican Burritos

Heres an easy-peasy recipe you can fill your easy-peasy flat breads with. This recipe is packed full of vegetables, and the beans make it filling and high in fibre. If you’re not quite ready to try a full vegetarian meal, start by adding half the amount of mince you usually would and bulk it out with a tin of beans. 



2 cloves of garlic crushed and chopped 

1 x onion diced 

Mexican spice mix*

1 x tin of tomatoes (or fresh tomatoes) 

1-2 x tins of beans (any kind you have e.g. kidney beans, chickpeas, blackbeans, 4 bean mix, even baked beans will work)

Any salad ingredients (e.g. lettuce, purple cabbage, capsicum, carrot, cucumber, avocado, spinach- aim for lots of colours!)

Flatbreads, wraps, or cooked rice 

Plain yoghurt / lite sour cream 

Optional mince



  1. Fry garlic, onion, and mexican spice mix in a little oil for 2-5 minutes until onions are soft. If you are adding mince cook the mince at this step. 
  2. Add capsicum, tinned tomatoes, and bean mix and simmer on a low heat for ~10minutes 
  3. While the mix is cooking chop salad ingredients. 
  4. Build your flatbread, wrap, or mexican bowl by adding everything together. 
  5. Top with plain yoghurt or lite sour cream 
  6. Enjoy 


* if you don’t have a premade sachet then mix any of these spices you have in the house: 1tsp cumin, 1tsp oregano, 1tsp paprika.
