Nice eat-twice vegetable burritos

I’m sorry, I have been unable to upload a photo, this is because-honestly-my burrito is so nice when I take it out the oven, that I can never be bothered to take a photo. PLUS, my camera is really old and requires me to charge the batteries before each use-a task that I forget to do. A photo may be uploaded in due course, but right now you can type burrito into Google, and that could satisfy you if you don’t know what a burrito is. BTW I also feel that if you’re gonna have mexican, you have to have all the Mexican stuff like guacamole etc. which means I spent about £1.50 on that-leading to this dish not being very thrifty. But it was so nice, i had it two nights in a row-hence “eat-twice”.

Method-For one person

-1 tortilla wrap per person

-1 pepper, red are the best in this situation in my opinion.

-1/4 of a courgette, wrap the rest up in cling film.

-3 Cherry tomatoes


Fajita spices


-A tin of refried beans (only about 85p)

-Cumin and coriander OR new discovery fajita spice (only 75p)

-PLUS-‘tex mex’ dips, such as guacamole, soured cream and salsa. You get all 3 in a pack for around £1.50


– Turn up the oven to 200 c. You don’t have to use all these vegetables, it’s really up to you what you use, but either way chop up peppers and courgette into baton shapes. And slice cherry tomatoes in half. Put these in a dish and drizzle with oil, sprinkle a dessert (cereal) spoon of the fajita mix on top and then move the vegetables around until they’re all covered with the oil and spices. Try and preserve the mix (clip the opening preferably), it can easily be re-used.

-Now put these in the oven. At 15 minutes stir around the vegetables. After another 15 minutes they should be nicely roasted if your oven is good. Turn up your oven if necessary, your vegetables should be soft and crispy at the edges.

-Get a bowl, and put in a few liberal chunks of feta, two dessert spoons of sweet corn, the roasted vegetables and the pièce de résistance about two spoons of the refried beans, or more if you love it. Mix this mixture.

-You might need to put your tortilla in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it up. Okay, now YOU MUST USE KITCHEN FOIL. Place a sheet of foil (the size of an A4 sheet) on a surface, matt side up. Put the tortilla on top, and the then put the mixture down the centre, but don’t put it up to the edges.

-Now wrap up the burrito like a parcel, this is hard to describe.  But just make sure the it is sealed nicely and looks like thisDon’t do it like a fajita!!!! Wrap the foil around it like another parcel, put on a baking tray and cook at the same temperature for 15 minutes.

– Take out and serve with dips and salad. I’ve made this sound complicated, but that’s because I’m not good at describing things.
