I don't know about you, but Mexican food is one of my favourite cuisines. It's got such a rich mix of different spices and colours, and every single dish sounds fun and exciting. I also find it's actually one of the easiest types of cuisines to make at home too, with each recipe being satisfying and rewarding with nutritional content - the meals are often high in protein (we're talking plenty of pulses and grains), filled with additional vitamins (the amount of roasted vegetables and buckets of corn) and smothered in seasoning that just makes your body sing (adding extra herbs and spices are also great ways of getting a variety of different foods into your gut microbe!). And I feel like everybody loves a burrito, right? You can essentially stuff them with whatever fillings you love, and they always end up tasting so delicious, but I promise you that this combination is one of the best. Roasted peppers with halloumi, sweet chilli sauce, smoky black beans and a hint of fiery vegan pepperoni - it's honestly so good...
With these burritos, I haven't included much heat. Personally, I can't handle too much anyway, but I also think that there is already plenty of smokiness and enough of a fragrant flavour to really make the burrito sing - but I'm telling you know that the finale of the drizzle of sweet chilli sauce really does make a HUGE difference. It's the sweetness that works so well with the lime and the smoked paprika - and of course, the halloumi - whilst the gentle chilli just adds the extra kick. If you're a big fan of heat then please feel free to add some chilli flakes earlier on or finish with some hot sauce, but don't worry if you can't handle the extra spice, as there is plenty of flavour waiting for you already!
One (large) mouthful of this brilliant burrito will give you smokiness, chewiness, creaminess and gently heat all in one go. And it's also ready to eat in less than 20 minutes. What's not to like?
