Burrito Bowl – Bowl Food is Soul Food – Midweek meals

I have fridge bits to use up, onions, peppers etc so took a pack of Market porter Mince out of the freezer last night – making Burrito Bowls.


I start by slicing 2 small onions and crushing 3 cloves of garlic


and popping them into the frying pan with a pinch of black pepper and a tablespoon of oil.


I then add the minced Beef, and once browned the sliced red bell pepper.


I add a crumbled oxo cube, a good shake of Worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of cumin, a little chilli and a pinch of sea salt, stir through and ensure the mince is browned.


Then add a can of crushed tomatoes, and a good squirt of tomato purรฉe with half a can of water.


Stir through, turn the heat down low and leave to cook through for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally till thick and rich.


Rather than the traditional Burrito Wraps, I am making tortillas chips, take a wrap


slice into 3,ย then each third, cut into triangles


lay them out of a baking sheet


cook for approx 5-10 minutes in a medium oven (180) till browned.

To build up,the bowl, add a big bowl full of the chilli Beef, ย aย large portion of sliced iceberg lettuce and any other salad you lik, andย the Tortilla chips, aย big blob of natural yoghurt with chopped fresh coriander.


Bowl food = Soul Food

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
