Cook the Rice
Cook the Rice

Pour the water for the rice (see ingredients for amount) into a saucepan and bring to the boil. When boiling, stir in the rice, lower the heat to medium and pop a lid on the pan. Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat and add the beef mince. Cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, 4-5 mins. Meanwhile, halve the peppers and discard the core and seeds. Chop into small pieces. Trim the carrot then quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into small pieces.

Cook the Chilli

Lower the heat to medium and stir the mexican spice into the mince along with the chopped veggies. Cook, stirring, until the veggies start to soften, 4-5 mins, then pour in the water (see ingredients for amount), finely chopped tomatoes, tomato passata and red wine stock pot. Stir and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the mixture is thick and vegetables are cooked, 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally.

Zest it Up!

Meanwhile, zest the lime then chop into wedges. Pop the soured cream in a bowl and stir in the lime zest. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

When ready to serve, fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls. Season the beef mixture to taste with salt and pepper if needed, then reserve 2 portions of the mixture - this is for your lunch burrito. Serve the remaining mixture on top of the rice and finish with a dollop of zesty soured cream (reserve half for your burritos!) and the lime wedges for squeezing over.


When you're ready to pack your lunch, drain and rinse the sweetcorn in a sieve and grate the cheese. Stir the sweetcorn into the reserved chilli. Lay a wrap on your board and spread with a little of the reserved soured cream. Top with some spinach, chilli and cheese. Tuck in the ends and roll into a burrito then wrap in foil and refrigerate. Repeat for the remaining wraps. Enjoy cold, or alternative heat up in a microwave or sandwich press until piping hot. Enjoy!
