So, even though I go around telling everyone that I love cooking and eating. Sometimes, I just love the fact that it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare dinner. You know, on ‘those’ days… where you don’t want to cook, but you do want something warm and you want real food not fast food… So, to sum things up: you know you’ll have to cook. This is the perfect recipe for those kind of days. An easy wrap. Pop it (the tortilla wrap) in the microwave for one minute and fill it with whatever you want.
We chose meat and chicken (that’s right, we wanted a bit of both. That’s allowed on a saturday. ;)) with salsa fresca, guacamole and sour cream. Mouth watering and still nutritious. You could fill them up with some (skinny) chili con carne too. Or with prawns and avocado, or… You get the picture, the options are endless. But, anyhow, this is my version.
You’ll need (serves two people)
- 150g chicken fillet (*or 300g if you prefer only chicken. Same for the steak)
- 150 steak
- 1 avocado
- 1 lime
- 1 garlic clove
- Rocket salad
- 3 tomatoes
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Sour cream
- Tortilla wraps
Start up by peeling the tomatoes and by removing the seeds. (easy trick to peel tomatoes is to cut a cross on top of the tomatoes and to add some boiling water to them. After two minutes rinse them off with cold water and the skin will easily peel off) Cut them in to small pieces and mix them in a bowl together with some rocket salad, olive oil and salt and pepper. You could add some garlic too. But since I’m going to add garlic to my guacamole too, we left the garlic behind in the tomato mixture. Pop it in the fridge, while you prepare the rest, until dinner is served.
Remove the flesh from the avocado and mix it together with lime juice and the garlic clove. Add some salt and pepper to taste Again, pop it into the fridge.
Now cut the chicken breast fillet into small pieces and bake them on a high heat in some coconut oil with salt and pepper. In a second pan, you bake the steak. Also on a high heat with some coconut oil. I suggest you bake the steak in one whole piece first and after cut them up into small pieces like the chicken.. This way, the center will stay pink and it will be baked perfectly. While, when you cut them up first and bake them after, they will easily turn dry. You’ll never be able to keep the slices moist and slightly pink in the middle. Unless you love your steak very well done. Than forget my advice ;).
Now put the wraps into the microwave for a minute or two. Put everything on the table and start layering them onto the wrap.
Start off with a good spoonful of sour cream, spread on top of the wrap. Add some guacamole, add the salsa fresca (tomatoes with the rocket salad) and add the chicken or steak. And fold the wrap as you please. I always make an envelope. The least messy way to eat a tortilla wrap, or so I’m told :).
