Spicy bean burritos

Another recipe that proves that cooking can be easy! In fact I feel a little cheeky posting this, because it’s so simple. But I’ll post it anyway, because it was that good.
We had these burritos for dinner, but they’re so quick to make that they’d make a good lunch too. And once again, they’re healthy enough to fit in with your new year’s resolutions! (if you’re not trying to eat more healthily this year, don’t worry – I’m sure I’ll have something indulgent up my sleeve to share with you soon)
These pictures are making me hungry remembering how tasty these were – loads of hot, spicy beans, with some crunchy salad and just enough cheese and light mayonnaise to make it not taste like a health food!
Also, considering you could easily buy a wrap like this in a shop for at least £3, these are a pretty cheap dinner.

Spicy bean burritos
Serves 3
3 flour tortillas
400g tin kidney beans (240g drained)
400g tin black eye beans (240g drained)
1tsp cayenne chilli pepper
1tsp hot chilli powder
1tsp paprika
Black pepper
100ml water
Half a small lettuce
2 large tomatoes
30g cheddar cheese, grated
6tbsp mayonnaise
Drain the two tins of beans and add to a saucepan with the spices and black pepper. Add 100ml of water to prevent them from sticking. Stirring frequently, cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes, or until the beans are soft and beginning to break down. Mash once or twice with a potato masher if desired.
Distribute the beans into the three tortilla wraps, and top with the salad, cheese and mayonnaise. Wrap up, and eat while the beans are still warm.
