Healthy Mexican Burritos with Apple Slaw


I love Mexican food- I eat it quite a lot but if you’re not careful, it can be full of fat and pretty unhealthy. This is a great little leftovers recipe or weekend meal. Instead of using beef, I like to use lean turkey mince as it is much leaner than other mince meats.

You can get as creative as you want with this recipe- I have kept it quite simple but add whatever veggies or sauces you want.

I also used whole grain, seeded wraps which are much healthier than white tortilla wraps (I got mine from Tescos).

The coleslaw is also amazeballs BUT you’ve gotta use Braeburn or jazz apples as they are the sweetest and crunchiest apples.

Makes approx 5 or 6 depending on how greedy you are (my bf and I polished them off in 4 wraps!)

For the burrito mince:
1tbsp of coconut oil (use olive oil if you don’t have coconut)
1 white onion (finely chopped)
1-2 cloves of garlic (minced/finely chopped)
500g of lean turkey mince
1 Red/yellow pepper (chopped into small pieces)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 packet of burrito spice mix

For the slaw:
1 Braeburn or jazz apple (grated)
1/4- 1/2 of a small red cabbage (chopped)
1 small red onion (finely chopped)
1tbsp of low fat mayonnaise
2tsp of sweet chilli dipping sauce

For the wrap:
Wholewheat, seeded wraps
1tbsp per wrap of low fat sour cream
Lettuce (shredded)
1tbsp of mature cheddar cheese (grated)
Chilli flakes (optional)

Heat the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and soften. Add the turkey mince to the pan and heat for about 10 mins or until cooked (turkey should no longer be pink) stirring all the time to separate the meat. Add the burrito mix, tinned tomatoes and peppers. Cook until the peppers have softened.

Whilst the mince is cooking, mix the red cabbage, apple and onion in a bowl and stir in the mayo and sweet chilli sauce.

Heat the wraps in the microwave for 30 seconds. Put one wrap on a plate and add the sour cream, spreading it over the wrap. Add the lettuce then top with mince, cheese and chilli flakes (optional). Fold two sides of the wrap together and then fold up the bottom. Add a few spoonfuls of slaw on the side of the plate and…devour!
