Some Mexican Flavor

Today I tried out an old recipe that my friend Niki used to make for us when we used to live together in London. This is the old favorite and well known Mexican recipe of Burritos. Not only are Burritos extremely yummy, they are also easy to make. This dish is perfect if you have little time on your hands yet still want a scrumptious recipe that's a bit different from the usual desi food.

The ingredients you need would be: 2 capsicums, tortillas, cheese, a can of mixed beans in spicy tomato sauce, chili garlic sauce and some thick and chunky salsa for that extra bite of flavor. You can get any kind of tortillas, ranging from the normal to the wheat ones but I personally like salsa tortillas so I chose those.

Take a frying pan, and add some olive oil. Put the pan on the stove at medium temperature. Add the capsicum, and fry them in the oil. Not only will these add some crunch in our burritos, but they will also add a lot of lovely color and some gusto.

Once the capsicum is done, add the contents of the can of mixed beans. Stir around to ensure proper mixing. Also add a teaspoon of chili garlic sauce for some zest. If you like your food extra spicy, you can also add some chopped chilis as per your taste.

Take a plate and place one of the tortillas on flat on it.

Take some salsa and place a thick and chunky bit of it on top of the tortilla. Spread it all over the tortilla.

Add the mixture of beans and capsicum from the sauce pan over the salsa. Spread it generously all over the salsa and tortilla.

Take some cheese and spread it all over the tortilla. Add cheese according to taste.

Now slowly wrap the burrito up like a roll, carefully ensuring the contents don't fall out. Place it in the microwave for about a minute, to make the cheese melt and mix all the contents inside. Enjoy some Mexican flavor hot, tangy, full of salsa zest and dripping with yummy cheese.
