This is a take on everyone's favourite Mexican Burrito, but I have taken the easy way out and just layered everything in a pan and baked it . . . coz sometimes I can be lazy like that. It actually turned out really tasty, and cut into wedges really well. We quite liked it! I love it when my experiments turn out alright!
For the filling I relied on some store cupboard ingredients and then a pound of fresh ground beef. I like to use lean beef. We only ever very rarely eat red meat and when we do eat it, I prefer it not to be too fatty.
I browned the beef and added some onions and fresh peppers and then an envelope of taco seasoning. I also added a jar of salsa for extra zip!
I then just simply layered it in a baking dish with flour tortilla wraps, cheese, rice and a tin of refried beans. Baked in a moderate oven, it melded into a delicious combination. I cut it into wedges and dressed each wedge with some sour cream, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, spring onions and black olives. Delicious! Simple. Quick to make.
