An American-style vegetarian wrap, with a savoury bean filling.


  • 1/2 a 400g can mixed or black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 40g (a big dollop) mild salsa
  • 50g herby soft cheese (like chive or garlic Philadelphia)
  • 1/2 an onion (chopped)
  • 1/3 pepper (chopped)
  • Frozen sweetcorn (optional)
  • Clove of garlic (crushed)
  • A little oil for frying
  • Salt
  • Coriander and cumin (optional, but recommended)
  • Black pepper or other herbs (optional)
  • Tortilla wrap (one or two, for serving)


  • STEP 1
    Fry the garlic and onion for a few minutes, until the onion is a little brown.
  • STEP 2
    Add the beans, pepper and salsa. Add the sweetcorn now too, if you are using it. Continue to heat for a minute or two.
  • STEP 3
    Add the soft cheese, in small chunks. Mix until it has all melted into the filling.
  • STEP 4
    Add salt to taste. You can add coriander, pepper, cumin or other herbs too, if you like.
  • STEP 5
    Continue to heat and stir until the bean filling has reduced to the consistency you would like it. Be aware that the filling tends to thicken a bit after sitting and cooling for a while.
  • STEP 6
    Serve in a warmed tortilla (or two, if you want a couple of smaller burritos, instead of one big one). You can toast the wrapped burrito in the oven, with grated cheese on top, if you like.
