Recipes TORTILLA WRAP HACK
TORTILLA WRAP HACK
If you’ve ever struggled with keeping your tortilla wraps together while eating – you’ll love this awesome new trendy hack!! Not only is it easy to make, but so versatile and will take your tortillas to the next level.
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- FOR THE WRAPS:
- Cape Herb & Spice CHIPOTLE CHILLI
- ½ cup tomatoes, diced
- ¼ red onion, finely diced
- ¼ cup coriander leaves
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1 small avocado, mashed with salt and lemon juice
- FOR THE TACO MINCE:
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 ½ cups freshly grated cheddar cheese
- ½ red onion, finely diced
- 3 extra-large flour tortillas
- 2 tsp Cape Herb & Spice TACO SPICE
- Lime wedges, to serve
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- Top tip: Do not buy pre-grated cheese. Preservatives like potato starch are added to keep the grated cheese from clumping together in the bag. This means they don't melt together well when cooking.
- 250g beef mince
- METHOD -
How to make the mince:
Start off by lightly browning the onion in a drizzle of olive oil. When its soft add the Cape Herb & Spice Taco Spice and fry until fragrant. Then add the tomato paste and beef mince. Cook this until the mince is cooked through and the tomato flavour caramelised. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine the tomato, red onion, coriander, lime juice and season it with a little salt.
How to make the wrap:
Lay the tortilla down on a cutting board or a clean kitchen surface, then take a pair of scissors and cut a line from the bottom edge to the centre. Then starting at the bottom left quarter, add some of the fresh tomato & onion salsa. To the top left quarter, spread on some guacamole. On the whole right hand side, sprinkle grated cheddar. On the top right hand corner add some dollops of sour cream and smooth.
Then sprinkle the whole right hand side of the wrap with a little Cape Herb & Spice Chipotle Chilli Seasoning.
Finally add some mince to the top right hand corner on top of the sour cream.
Then, starting with the bottom left corner, fold it up over the top left, then fold it over to the top right and finally, fold it down to the bottom right.
Brush the outside of the tortilla with a little olive oil.
Lastly pan fry over medium heat until the tortilla is very crispy on both sides and the cheese has melted.
Serve hot and enjoy!
