Taco Wontons ~ Secret recipe club challenge 17th June 2013

This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try  it and blog about it.
My assigned blog was creative kitchen adventures written By Denise. The blog is fun with lots of interesting recipes. I was looking for a speedy  recipe and the post on Taco wontons really captured my attention but it was not vegetarian.This did not deter me I used the idea and the method and replaced the meat with mixed beans and peppers. The recipe turned out really delicious.


4 whole meal tortilla wraps
1 can of mixed bean (precooked)
125 g mixed peppers finely diced
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 tablespoon tomato purée
Pinch of ground cumin

Cilantro and chopped peppers for garnish


1. In  a pan add the oil, when it is hot the garlic and sauté for a minute , add the peppers and cook for another minute.
2. Add the beans, salt, chilli flakes,cumin and 1 tablespoon tomato purée and cook the mixture for 3-4 minutes more. Remove from heat and keep aside.
3.Cut the tortillas into  8 (4 inch x 4 inch) squares.
4. Press the tortilla squares into a muffin pan to form little baskets, bake these in a preheated oven 180 degrees C/ 375 degrees F for about eight minutes or until crisp
5. Remove the tortilla baskets from oven and fill them with the bean mixture.
Garnish with some more finely chopped peppers and cilantro.
