Chilli Bean Burrito ★★★★★2 reviews

A burrito made quick and easy with delicious ingredients, tightly wrapped in a tortilla. Pro tip for workers: prepare the fillings the night before in a zip lock bag for maximum freshness.

Serves 1 | Prep time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 5 mins


  • 1/2 cup Mexican chilli beans (canned or use leftover chilli from the night before – Day 3 dinner)
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 cup salad leaves
  • 1 tortilla
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/2 sliced Lebanese cucumber (optional)
  • 1/2 medium avocado (optional)
  • Soy sour cream (optional)


  1. You can either have the chilli cold or hot. If you want it warmed, heat it for a few minutes in a saucepan or in the microwave for 20 seconds or until the desired temperature is reached.
  2. Warm the tortilla in a pan, 30 seconds each side.
  3. Spoon chilli bean mix evenly down the centre of the tortilla, add tomatoes, salad leaves, coriander (and optional soy sour cream, cucumber and avocado) then tightly roll up the tortilla.
  4. Serve immediately.

    I used quinoa instead of the tortilla. Is that an acceptable substitution?

      For sure! That’s a very healthy substitute.
