Cook savvy: beef & spinach burritos

Here’s an everyday recipe that’s easy to make, is very tasty and the whole family can enjoy.


Takes: 15 mins

Serves: 4


2 tsp vegetable oil

1/2 x 750g beef mince

1 x 250g pack wholegrain microwave rice

475g frozen spinach

1 x 290g tin hot and spicy beans

4 x seeded tortilla wraps, warmed

50g grated mature cheddar

6 tbsp fat-free natural yoghurt (optional)

Hot or sweet chilli sauce (optional)


1. Over a high heat, warm the oil in large frying pan and add the mince. Fry for 2-3 minutes until well browned.

2. Add the rice and spinach and mix well. Cover and cook for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until the spinach is defrosted.

3. Stir in the bean with sauce. Season.

4. Split the mixture between the warmed tortillas, spreading it along the centre. Add the grated cheese. Roll up the tortillas, tucking in the ends to prevent the filling from falling out. Serve with yoghurt and chilli sauce if using.
