By Patrick Gitau

Ingredients

2 tbsps sunflower oil

1 red onion

3 cloves garlic

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

homemade chilli salsa

1 tbsp mayonnaise

250gms shredded Sirimon Everyday Cheese

Homemade flour tortillas

1/2 cup water

2 cups black beans, cooked

Lettuce leaves

To make the flour tortillas, you’ll need:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup water

3 tablespoons olive oil

How to make the flour tortillas:

1.) In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes. Cover with a kitchen cloth.

2.) Divide dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-inch circle.

3.) In a greased cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook tortillas over medium heat until lightly browned, 1 minute on each side. Keep warm.

Method of Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a pan. Cook the onions and garlic till fragrant. Add cooked black beans, water and spices. Simmer for 5 minutes to reduce the water. Remove from fire.
  2. To assemble the burrito, place the cooked black beans, red bell pepper, lettuce, chilli salsa, mayonnaise and shredded Everyday Cheese on the flour tortilla. Fold to form a wrap. Enjoy!
