Lime Burritos

I have a great love for Tex-Mex food but for some reason had never made my own burrito until I made this one. I highly recommend giving it a try, they're very easy and exceptionally tasty.


  • 2 onions, finely chopped

  • 3 tbsp oil

  • 300g rice

  • 660ml water

  • 3 limes

  • 1 large bunch of coriander, finely chopped

  • 200g of red leicester, grated

  • 8 flour tortilla

  • guacamole to serve



  1. Fry the onion in the oil on a medium heat until it starts to soften.

  2. Add the rice and stir it well to coat the rice evenly with oil.

  3. Pour the water into the pan and then turn the heat to low and put a lid on the rice. Don't be tempted to peak and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. While the rice is cooking pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.

  5. Once the rice is cooked, squeeze the juice of the limes into the rice and add some zest from one of the limes.

  6. Mix the coriander and lime juice into the rice.

  7. Take a tortilla and spoon some of rice mixture into the centre of it.

  8. Sprinkly 1/8th of the cheese over it and then fold the tortilla up.

  9. Place the tortilla in an oven proof dish and repeat for the remaining tortilla.

  10. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the tortilla start to crisp up.

  11. Serve with a large dollop of guacamole on the side of the plate.

Serves 3 to 4, depending on how hungry people are.
