Mexican Chipotle Wraps

Slow cooked beef tortilla with ooft! CHipotle

Mexican Chipotle wraps

Mexican chipotle wraps have taken the Uk by storm. They are easy to make, use simple ingredients and are tasty. In an age where its all about quick and easy they work for many hard pressed working people. But if you take a little time you can make these simple foods into gourmet treats. This recipe uses home baked beef, but tis not a big hard thing to do, season and pop in the oven at the weekend and set the timer. Then you have lovely fork mash able meat for wraps for a week, that is just so much tastier.  Use a quality sauce like Ooft! Chipotle. Many of the sauces sold in supermarkets are not that tasty and full of additives and chemicals.

Ingredients (for 4-6 people)

1kg beef brisket

1 bottle ooft! Chipotle

1 Onion

2 cloves Garlic

Lettuce, avocado, sweet peppers



Take a frying pan and render down some onions and garlic slowly. Remove and turn up heat and sear pieces of brisket until browned. Add all to a covered oven pan together with half a bottle of Ooft! Hot Chipotle sauce and enough water to cover meat, and cook low for 4 hours. Drain and simmer sauce in pan until reduced by about half and nice and thick. The beef will shred with a fork. This can keep for several days and served quickly when you come home from work. This can be served many ways.

Shown here served on a warm tortilla with lettuce, sweet pepper strips (for crunch) and sliced avocado topped with more Ooft! Chipotle.

But you could equally well put that tortilla in an open dish, add Spanish rice and cover with grated cheese and grill to make a tamale.
