Chilli Beef Burritos

With lots of fibre from the beans and fresh ingredients these are great meals for evenings all year round.


1 tsp rice bran oil or canola oil 
300g beef mince 
390g can red kidney beans, drained 
400g can Mexican flavoured tomatoes 
6-8 burritos (1-2 per person) 
1 avocado, mashed 
150g lite sour cream 
1/2 cup grated Edam cheese 
1 cup shredded lettuce 
2 tomatoes, sliced

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Cook mince until browned. Drain off any liquid. 
2. Add kidney beans and tomatoes. Cook for 10-15 minutes. 
3. Heat burritos as per packet directions. 
4. Spread avocado onto burritos then add mince mixture and other ingredients. 
5. Roll up burritos and cut in half to make them easier to eat. 
6. Serve with extra salad ingredients.

Hints & Tips

Health tip: Draining off the liquid after browning the mince reduces the level of fat in the meal. 
Alternatives: If avocados are not in season, use hummus. If you don’t have any burritos, use the mixture in pita bread pockets or over a baked potato.
