Rich Chorizo and Pork Wraps – Our House Special
I make this recipe a lot. So much so that our boys remark “again?” when they ask what’s for dinner? But it’s easy and always hits the spot even if they’ve had it only last week. It’s a share and talk round the table meal, it’s a sitting in front of the TV meal, it’s a camping phenomenon and it’s a late night beach hut feast. It’s our House Special (… well one of them).
It freezes really well too and when my family sit down together to eat it then I know we are going to talk and giggle and share our day – good or bad but still giggles will feature.
What’s your family everyday meal? You know, the one that “just-works” no frills no spills?
This will serve you well as a quick family meal with enough vegetables in it to make you feel you’ve covered all the bases. Tasty and easy.
Rich Chorizo and Pork Wraps
2 tablespoons oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
1 large carrot, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
500g pork mince
1 teaspoon cumin
1teaspoon smoked paprika
250g chorizo, diced
140g tomato puree
1 chicken stock cube
300ml apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried sage
In a large saucepan, gently fry the onion, celery, carrot and garlic in the oil until softened.
Turn up the heat and add the pork mince stirring until coloured. Add the cumin and paprika and fry for a few minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and cook on a low heat for about 20 minutes.
Tip: Tastes even better if cooked in advance and reheated when needed.
Serve with sour cream dip, grated cheese, wraps and tortilla chips.

This looks lovely!! I love that you can freeze it as I’m in the process of batch cooking at the moment 🙂 X
Oh yes I do batch cook on repeat too! My trouble is I’m not so disciplined with my freezer and some nights we eat the same time! Elinor x
I’m a vegetarian, but this looks like something my husband would love! Saved for a summer’s day 🙂
I’m sure it would work with lentils and you upped the paprika instead of the chorizo. I might just try that and let you know! Elinor x
Oh my goodness this looks phenomenal I am on a cleanse right now and could literally just fall of the wagon looking at this – come to mama!
You are so good. I’m in need of a cleanse for sure! Elinor x
This looks so good, I could just eat it right now. Definitely bookmarking for later x
Thanks Cathy. These are always a hit with my people. Elinor x
This looks so tasty. Do you dice up the chorizo? I definitely want to give these a go with my little one. x
Yes I do, in fact well spotted and will amend recipe. Thanks for that much appreciated. Elinor x
Oh these sounds amazing!! I love pork and chorizo, I’m definitely going to give these a try!
These looks delicious, I love dishes with chorizo
Wow this looks so delicious!!!!! I love any kind of wrap. We’re not huge pork fans in our house, but I definitely want to try this with another type of meat. x
Yes I’m sure it would work with turkey. Sounds like a plan. Elinor x
I made similar one a few times and loved it too and could probably eat every day if I could get away with it.
Ooh I love the look of this. I am a veggie so make Quorn chilli a lot, great with grated cheese, tortillas and dips
These look delicious and exactly the sort of family meal we enjoy. Will be adding to my list! x
Rice and Chicken Curry – No complaints and there would nothing left after the meal 🙂 Love the pictures, made me hungry 🙂
Thanks and good choice on the meal, Elinor
This looks delicious! I think this would go down a treat with my little brood x
That sounds goood… I am always stuck with what to do with pork mince, and usually end up making a spicy chinese tofu and pork dish, but this sounds like one to add to the list! 🙂
