Unwrapped beef Burritos

Equipped with seeded tortillas, a diverse amount of fillings and some of my favourite sauces; there could only be one thing on my mind. After craving burritos the past couple of days, it was only inevitable that I'd end my Sunday with so much goodness on one plate. I've had the longest week ever, exhausted doesn't even begin to describe how I feel. The burrito making process was rather therapeutic whilst the taste was just delightful. Why unwrapped you say? Because I always seem to add such a huge variety of fillings (if I like it, I'll add it in regardless of the norm) which then makes it practically impossible to wrap them up nicely. What does it matter, they are going in my tummy either way! When you're not up for cooking a full blown meal, this my friends is such a great solution; quick, easy and really tasty.
 What you need:
1 cup brown rice or white rice (depends on preference)
250g minced beef
Quarter cup chopped red onions
A handful of chopped peppers (red/yellow)
Quarter cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp homemade salsa or you can buy
Red kidney beans
Handful of spinach
Handful of Kale
Chopped cucumber
Tbsp French dressing sauce
Method:

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions. I have a rice cooker so that's a 15 minute job.
  2. Whilst rice is cooking, fry up your minced beef and season then set aside. In a tsp of oil on medium heat, add beans, onions, spinach, and kale. Fry for a minute just to heat them up.
  3. Layer in no particular order; rice, beans fry up, cucumber, salsa, french dressing and a sprinkle of cheese.
  4. Tada, let's eat.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to take on the week ahead!
