Mexican Beef Wraps

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.

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.

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!

Olive oil spray
1 red onion, diced
400g lean beef mince
1 tablespoon Mexican spice mix
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated

To serve:
1 tomato, diced
1/4 avocado, diced
1/2 cup corn kernels
squeeze lime juice
4 large wraps/8 small wraps

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and spray with olive oil.  Add onion and saute for 5 minutes, until soft.  Add mince and cook until browned.

Add spice mix and tomato paste and cook, stirring, for a further 2 minutes.  Add 1/2 cup water with carrot and zucchini.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve on wraps, with the salad.
