Check out the latest recipe from Ness’s blog, Mums in the Kitchen!
You can mix up these fabulous weeknight Mexican wraps – I made small wraps to make them a bit like soft tacos, or you could just pile the mince mixture into one big wrap. Or for a change, you could layer the wraps and mince in a casserole dish, sprinkle some cheese on top and bake it – yum!
And of course, get all the fresh ingredients from Charlie’s!
It’s so easy and low in calories (just on 300 calories per serve). I’ve linked to the recipe for the wraps themselves, but you can always use bought. Confession: even though it goes against my current policy of not buying any packaged food with more than 5 ingredients, I used up some leftover Chilli Con Carne seasoning. But now that packet’s empty, I’ll definitely make my own next time, using the recipe I linked below!
I also love how budget-friendly this meal is – about $6 for 4 serves – you can’t get much cheaper than that!
The official verdict from my kids was this:
Miss 3: “That was yummy, mummy – BIG thumbs up”
Mr 1: “More meat! More meat!”
The whole family will love these – enjoy!
