  • Get the crispy lettuce, grated cheese, juicy chopped tomatoes and Thick ‘n’ Chunky Salsa ready on the side
    2 juicy tomatoes, sliced or chopped, 125 g freshly grated cheese, 1 crisp lettuce, chopped
  • Put the big bowl of beef and bean chilli on the table, and let them tuck in. In El Paso we make a bed of lettuce and tomato in the centre, load a couple of spoonfuls of chilli, cheese and salsa and wrap the warm, soft tortilla around the filling and tuck it in at one end to make a snug burrito - but you can make them however you like!
