I use tortillas quite a lot for lunches and serve them with my veggie chilli, but the first thing I wanted to make when I made my own tortillas was cheesey bean wraps.
You see I've been craving them for a while. Tesco used to sell a 3 Bean Wrap that I loved, in fact the only Tesco sandwich that was worth buying, but of course it came off the shelves the same way the roasted vegetables on sun-dried tomato bread and the mushroom and horseradish did. I don't know why Tesco persist in selling such foul sandwiches when they got it so right with these.
The original 3 Bean Wrap wasn't spicy, but I wanted mine to have a kick, so I added some Smoked Chilli Paste to my mayonnaise.
I picked up a sample jar of this gorgeous paste when I was down in London at Food Blogger Connect in July. This stuff is gorgeous! The paste can be added to so many dishes and they also sell a spicy mayonnaise and spicy honey which I also loved. I've just found out you can buy it on Amazon, but you could just add your favourite spices.
My wraps were delicious!
