Meat Lovers Chilli con Carne Wrap

Sometimes I´m laughing that my recipes have to pass the honest quality test. This recipe here has successfully passed the test. It´s now my boyfriend favorite meal. Mostly I succeed with desserts which are my favorite things to do but sometimes I´m able to make some savory dishes.

Also, our greenhouse was full of tomatoes & chili peppers. So, I had to do something with them!

Serve for 4


  • 400 g minced beef
  • 1 medium onion chopped into cubes
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 medium red fresh jalapeño
  • 1 medium fresh chili pepper
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • Freshly grounded sea salt and black pepper
  • 400 g tinned crushed tomatoes or freshly blended tomatoes
  • 100 g tinned red kidney beans
  • 100 g tinned white kidney beans
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped mint or coriander
  • 4 multigrain wraps*
  • 4 handfuls of fresh rocket leaves
  • Homemade guacamole: 3 ripe avocados, 1/2 medium fresh juiced lemon, freshly ground sea salt and black pepper, chili flakes


  1. Chop large onion into small dices. Chop the chili and jalapeño. (If you don´t like it to be too spicy, then take out the seeds. I like it spicy and I usually leave them inside).
  2. Caramelize the diced onions with a little bit of coconut oil in a hot pan until they go almost like glass. Then add minced garlic, chopped chili and jalapeño. Cook another minute.
  3. Add the beef to the pan and break it up with your spoon. Season with chili flakes, salt and pepper. The mix should sizzle a bit when you add the minced beef. Keep stirring for at least 5 minutes, until all the mince is cooked and there are no more pink bits. The heat has to be hot enough to become brown.
  4. Add crushed tomatoes. Wait until they go hot and then lower the heat until it is gently bubbling. Then leave it for 10 minutes or until most of the liquid steams away. Check the pan occasionally and stir. After that, the mixture should look moist and juicy.
  5. In a meantime make the guacamole. For that, blend all the guacamole ingredients and season it for your taste.
  6. Drain and rinse the beans and then add them to the mixture. Cook another few minutes until the beans are hot.
  7. Finally, take the chili con carne out of the heat and add chopped mint.
  8. Heat up the wraps without oil on a clean non-sticking pan (you can add some melted cheese on the wrap but I usually skip that part). Add rocket leaves and chili con carne.
  9. Serve the chili con carne wrap with guacamole.

Notes: *You can always serve the chili con carne with rice instead of wrap.
