Chilli Bean Tortillas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

These look really yummy. I am sure if you like things with more of a kick you could use a hotter chilli powder but I am a spice wimp so this is right on target for my taste buds. I found this in the Winter 2008 copy of the BBC Easy Cook magazine.

Fabulous! Loved the lamb used instead of the usual beef! I made these with multigrain tortilla wraps and served them with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and grated cheese - oh yes, and a big Spanish style salad! Made for Mexico and ZWT5 - merci S_J!! FT:-)
