Recipe type: Dinner, Family
Serves: Serves 5
- 1 packet of wholemeal wraps (gluten free if necessary)
- oil spray or brush oil (1st quantity)
- ½ T multi-purpose oil (2nd quantity)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 500gm premium beef mince
- 400gm can tomato puree
- 400gm can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 t worcestershire sauce (use gluten free if required)
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 2 c spinach, finely chopped
- ½ t salt
- a good grinding of black pepper
- grated cheese (omit if dairy free)
- Preheat the oven to 180˚ C fanbake. Using heatproof bowls, (I used our breakfast bowls), lightly spray or brush the sides with oil (1st quantity). Place a wrap into each bowl, press down to form shape and cook in the oven for approximately 10 minutes until the wraps are toasted and hold their shape. (I cooked five at the same time spread over two oven racks). Once cooked, remove from bowls and set aside to allow to cool and crispen.
- Note: If using gluten free wraps, I suggest warming the wrap before placing in the bowl to make it more pliable.
- Turn the oven onto a high grill.
- While the bowls are cooking, heat the oil (2nd quantity) in a wok or large frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Add the mince and brown on all sides. Add the tomato puree, red kidney beans and worchestershire sauce. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the mince is cooked through. Stir through the grated carrot, spinach and salt and pepper and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until spinach is wiltered.
- Replacing the toasted nacho bowls back in the heatproof bowls, evenly spoon the mince mixture into the bowls, top with the grated cheese (if using) and place under the grill to melt, keeping a close eye on them as they can burn quickly.
- Serve immediately. Break the sides of the nacho bowls as nacho chips to scoop up the mixture & eat.
