  • 180g jar fiery chilli pesto (we used Sacla)



    Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.


  • 450g lean beef mince
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 2 red pepper, sliced
  • 400g can kidney bean, drained
  • 8 small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 8 flour tortilla
  • 2 avocado, stoned and thickly sliced



    Although it's technically a fruit, the mild-flavoured avocado is used as a vegetable. Native…

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • reduced-fat mayonnaise, to serve


  1. Tip the pesto into a large pan with the mince and cumin, and fry for a few mins. Crumble in the stock cube, add the peppers and kidney beans, then fill the empty can with water and add this to the pan, too. Cover and simmer for 10 mins, then remove the lid and continue to cook for 5-10 mins or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir in the coriander.

  2. Heat the tortillas following pack instructions and serve with the chilli, avocados, onion and a dollop of mayo.

Great reward for the amount of effort...

Not bad, even for me as a spice-aphobe! Agree with others it would be nice with rice, although enjoyed it just as much in wraps. Partner and I would definitely make this again.

actually really rather enjoyed this - used it with rice rather than the tortillas - also added a small tin tomato puree.

My student son made this for us for dinner and said it was so easy to make he will try it when back at uni. Not easy to eat in wraps though! Maybe rice would have been better.
