oooh! Clare! brilliant idea this community!  
My burritos :D

this is a recipe that I made up for burritos after I tried every kind of store-bought mix that is available and hated them all.


1lb ground beef
1/2 red onion (diced)
1/2 Green pepper (diced)
1 cup white rice
1 whole pimento (diced)
3 large peppadews (sliced)
2 tbsp cholula sauce (or your favourite pepper sauce)
1 tbsp dried chipotle peppers
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
dash garlic salt
dash curry
(you can add or subtract spice amounts to taste. This amount gives it a bit of a kick without making you feel on fire)

diced tomato
raw onion
shredded cheese

crumble meat over low heat and add your veggies. Turn up heat just a notch until the meat is just sizzling. stir and fold meat and veggies until slightly brown and add your cholula or pepper sauce. fold well then add your spices one at a time folding well each time. Turn back to low heat and throw an lid on for 15 minutes.

While your meat is cooking, make your rice according to package directions.

When your meat is done, put 2 or 3 paper towels into a collander over a plate and dump the entire mixture in. The paper towels will soak up the grease and bring down the calorie and fat content.

Dump from collander back into pan and throw away your paper towels.

put one large spoon of meat and one large spoon of rice into a tortilla and top with whatever you like. The rice will make the burrito more filling and stretch your meat farther.

Sounds absolutely YUM!

I would probably substitute the meat for some Quorn or meatfree mince, but it would work just as well.

This would probably work in Tacos aswell?

You cant take a picture of this. It's already gonecimmorene on September 21st, 2005 12:59 am (UTC)
oh yes! would be divine in tacos, as well as making nachos

Ok, call me a silly american, but, what is quorn? is it like tofu?

Quorn is a mushroom based meat replacement that we have over here. I assumed you had it over there - lol! Its really great as you can get so many different things made from it such as mince, fillets, burgers etc. Here is their website :)
