  • 1 small onion, sliced



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 400g can mixed beans, drained and rinsed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 30g sachet fajita seasoning (we like Discovery), or 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 8 soft corn tortillas wraps (Old El Paso are good)



    In Spain, a tortilla is a kind of omelette, with ingredients added - frequently sliced cooked…

  • grated cheese, guacamole and soured cream
  • handful coriander or parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Gently fry onions for 5 mins in oil, until softened. Tip in beans, tomatoes and seasoning, then simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally.

  2. Meanwhile, warm the wraps in the microwave on High for 1 min.

  3. Take a large spoonful of beans and spoon along the centre of each wrap. Top with some grated cheese, a spoonful of guacamole and soured cream and a sprinkling of coriander or parsley. Wrap into a cigar shape and eat straight away.

This was quick, easy and very tasty. I used half a 35g packet of fajita seasoning. The grated cheese, guacamole and soured cream added to the overall flavour.

Used Dukkah as my spice - delicious.

Really impressed with this, such a simple and tasty recipe, even my doubting husband who said he didn't fancy this had to admit he was wrong and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think the extras of guac, coriander, cheese and sour cream make all the difference too.

These were great. So quick aswell to make after work. Added some frozen sliced mixed peppers to the bean mixture.

It says that this recipe is freezable, does anyone know at what stage it should be frozen and how best to re-heat it? I have a young son and i'm looking to do some batch cooking for the freezer to make my life a bit easier during the week but i'm not sure of the ins and outs of batching for the freezer! Any help with this recipe would be appreciated.

I'd freeze this after stage 1, and either thaw it in the fridge overnight, if you're organised enough, or thaw it on defrost in a microwave for however long it takes - maybe 15-20 mins depending on the volume. Alternatively you could thaw and reheat it gently on the stove, but take care not to overcook it in that case, or the beans may go mushy!

My husband is a vegetarian and I'm not so I love it when I find a recipe we 'both' like. Very tasty and easy to make. Used 'mild chilli' seasoning and did recipe exactly as stated and served with cheesy Doritos. Delish!

Really nice though I sound the bean mix a little watery for wraps, so next time would drain the juice a little from tomatoes. Did them with sour cream and salsa - yummy

I made this for me and my husband this week. We used Old El Paso Salsa wraps, topped them with salsa and cheese and baked in the oven for 10 mins. It was delicious, will definitely have it again.
