"Sanchilatas" aka Mexican San Choy Bau


What do you do with leftover burrito mince?

I decided to fuse Chinese and Mexican to create "sanchilatas" - seasoned mince with capsicum, coriander and lime served in a lettuce shell. It may sound boring but I think it's pretty damn tasty and great when you feel like something a little healthier than a taco!

What you need:

  • iceberg lettuce
  • burrito mince (cooked according to burrito seasoning directions)
  • capsicum
  • coriander
  • lime
Reheat the seasoned mince (or cook if you don't have it as leftovers). Tear the lettuce trying to keep whole pieces so that you have a bowl shaped leaf. Dice the capsicum, chop the coriander and wedge the lime. Serve according to the photo below.
