Quick Beef Wraps and Chilli Beans
October 9, 2015
Wraps seem a little like cheating for dinner to me, I don’t know why. Maybe it is because a wrap is generally a lunch meal. My kids think it is a huge treat to have wraps for dinner. They have just returned home from a visit to their grandparents and were drawing tacos and burritos. I couldn’t find out why they had started drawing food images instead of the regular army, family and kinder themed pictures. I asked if they ate them, it their cousin was talking about them or drawing them but couldn’t quite work it out.
We have home made tacos reasonably often so I decided to recreate a burrito type meal for them. This recipe was created taking some things from the garden and bits and pieces from the pantry. It is loosely based on this recipe for burritos that I posted back in the early days of this blog and my home made baked bean recipe. I wanted to give the beans more of a Mexican spin and I cooked them quickly in the pressure cooker. All in all, this was a quick family meal that kept everyone happy.
My four year old skipped the beans due to the chilli I added to them. He is not quite at the point where he will try spicy food. I used fresh spinach from the garden as the kids prefer to eat spinach rather than lettuce.
Quick Beef Wraps and Chilli Beans. A family meal inspired by my children's drawings. Made quick with the help of my pressure cooker.
If you can not find dried black turtle beans substitute with an alternate bean eg: kidney beans, chick peas or similar.
If you do not have a dried chipotle chilli, use the tinned variety in adobe
Quick and healthy, I think we will be eating them more regularly over the warmer months. I enjoyed being able to add the beans to make the meal feel more substantial for Mr Fresh and he enjoyed the left overs for his lunch the next day.
Are you a fan of wraps at your place?
