Red Bean Wraps

I thought I’d take the opportunity to post about one of my current favourite meals/snacks.  Red bean wraps.  I love wraps coz… well, they’re just more fun than a sandwich, aren’t they? And also there’s a whole host of things I’d never put in a sandwich that I would in a wrap (fajitas) and a whole lot of things I’d have in a sandwich but never in a wrap (cheese and pickle).

Anyway, wraps are always part of my kitchen arsenal.  However, stuff to put in wraps, that’s usually in short supply.  I keep all my meats frozen to use as and when, so if I want some chicken then I have to plan for defrosting, cooking, etc.  However, if I just want a quick bite to eat that fills me up and gets me going I don’t have time to mess about.  This is where these little beauties come in.  A tin of red kidney beans, may be even some bacon if I feel like it, and away I go!  Better yet, if you ignore the cheese and bacon options these could actually be considered healthy!

Serves 4 (don’t feel you need to serve it all at once, it refrigerates and reheats well.)

1x400g tin red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 small onion, diced
1 tsp coriander
pinch chilli powder
1 tbsp lime juice
(2 rashers of bacon, chopped)

To serve:
sliced onion/usual salad suspects
creme fraiche
sweet chilli sauce
grated cheese

– Put all of the ingredients in a microwavable bowl, give them a bit of a stir.
– Cover and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.
– Check to make sure it’s cooked, give it longer if not (only really necessary if using bacon).
– Serve in a wrap with lettuce and whatever sauces or garnishes take your fancy.
