Vegetarain Burritos

In honor of Cinco de Mayo here is our well worn vegetarain Burrito recipe- nothing too flash. We dress it up and down depending on the audience. This was orginally created for the British side of our family- who unfamilar with Mexican food quickly becamse obsessed! If you are not vegetarian you can easily replace the quorn with the meat of your choice.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion (sliced)
4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 red pepper (thinly sliced)
½ packet of quorn pieces (defrosted)
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2 inches of salt
1 tin re-fried beans
½ tin sweetcorn
4 oz grated cheddar cheese
4 large flour tortillas
3 tomatoes, finely chopped


1, Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the onions and garlic, fry for 3 mins and add the peppers. Fry until the vegetables are tender.

2, Add the quorn, the cumin, chili powder and salt and fry until the quorn/chicken is cooked right through. (do not over cook, the quorn/chicken).

3, Add in the refried beans. Stir in until they become thoroughly combined with the other ingredients.

4, Stir in the sweetcorn and cheese. Cook for 5-10 mins, stirring often.

5, Remove the mixture from the heat. Take one of the tortillas and place in a well oiled frying pan. Place a large dollop of the mixture on one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle some fresh tomatoes over the top. Fold up the tortilla over to cover the mixture. Fry on both sides and serve.
