Beef Burritos & Beef Ragu

Evening! I hope you had a lovely weekend. We’ve only got a few hours left of Sunday already! I honestly don’t know where my weekends go sometimes.

I’m doing a two for one meal tonight, in preparation for the coming week as I’d like to get the freezer stacked a little more. I also had a 750g portion of mince, so I thought I’d do 500g for the burrito’s and 250g for the ragu.

This is my basic version of the burritos, but feel free to add anything you’d like. Rice, tomatoes, different cheeses etc.

My little man seems to really like beef at the moment, so I thought I’d make him a ragu and portion some up to have in the freezer. He did not have the burrito’s because of all of the spices, but I can tell you that they were lovely and he’ll enjoy eating them when he’s older!

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the ragu. Sorry!

Love, Natalie x
