Frugal Cooking Series – Burrito Bowl and Home Made Tortilla Chips

Burrito bowls have fast become a family favourite ! The joy with these is that you can add or remove anything you or your kids do not like , they are healthy and really easy to throw together ! Some days I throw all the beans in separately other days I use left over chilli and add lettuce , sweetcorn and cheese ! My kids LOVE the beans , which is great as they are such a cheap way of getting protein into their diets .
