I am that over coming up with dinner ideas lately it is a complete joke.  So when the HOTH pointed this recipe out in a magazine a few weeks ago I was all over it!!  

I cooked plain chicken for the kids and gave them rice without coriander.  I had brought them some bread rolls but they ended up eating the tortillas!!  So next time I make it I will be adding some frozen veg in with the rice and buying an extra pack of tortillas!!  

I call this a winning meal as it was easy, quick and we all ate it (which is rare)!!

Linking up with One Mother Hen for #openslather


  1. It's great to have the quick 'winning' meals you can rely on when you don't feel like cooking Ann. Looks delicious♥

  2. How good are burritos. We often have tacos for dinner at Mum's as it's the one thing that everyone will love, even Punky, who has become the pickiest of eaters lately. We have been telling Mum we should have burritos one night so I might have to show her this coz it sounds delish!

  3. I have to do the same, eg give the kids plain chicken and rice, BORING, but at least they eat it. Love burritos.

  4. That feeling when you find a recipe that everyone likes - Winning!

  5. This would be a winner in my house. I'm going to have to add it to our regular lineup.

  6. this is awesome Ann. We love our wraps, we have our tacos in wraps too, I have to buy the hard crunchy ones for hubby though. He is like a fussy child.

  7. Yummm! Looks so easy and delicious ! Totally going to give this a whirl!
