The Recipe Post #6: Chilli Beef Tortillas

Sometimes when it gets to teatime after a week of work, simplicity is the key. A few weeks ago I tried out this really simple chilli beef and bean tortillas recipe, which I originally spotted in Sainsbury’s magazine. With a couple of adaptations, here’s the meal we ate:

To serve 2, you will need:

1 red onion, sliced
Olive oil
1 small garlic clove, crushed
250g lean mince
400g kidney beans in chilli sauce
100ml water
4 flour tortillas
Grated cheddar, and anything else you want to serve with

In a large pan, fry the onion in a little olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and mince, stirring until the meat has browned.

Add the kidney beans and 100ml water, turn the heat down and simmer the mince for 20 minutes.

Towards the end of the 20 minutes, griddle both sides of the tortilla wraps.

Serve the chilli topped with grated cheese, wrap into the tortillas and enjoy.

This was beyond simple, and is so filling and satisfying.

What are your favourite quick teatime treats?
