A good cure for a bad mood – therefore perfect for a Monday. This recipe is quick, it’s easy, and you have the cathartic pleasure of dumping a lot of chilli into the dish – then eating it yourself. It’s so yummo that it’ll chase away the Monday blues – and/or burn the roof off your mouth.

1. Cut up the onion and grate the garlic. Start cooking it up in a medium-to-large sized frying pan with a dash of cooking oil.

2. Once the onion and garlic has softened, put the frying pan onto low heat – and start adding your cumin and paprika. Mix it in good. Keep stirring ‘cos there’s a risk you may burn it. A hefty wad of chilli is on the cards, too.

Quantities are entirely contingent on personal preference. Just don’t put too much in that you give yourself bowel cancer.

3. Put the heat up a bit, and start mixing in the tomato. Keep going with the paprika. Don’t be shy, now. Once it’s bubbling away – add in the chick peas. Keep stirring. Add a bit more paprika. Some salt. And some more paprika.

Making the wraps:

1. Microwave the wraps for 40 seconds – thereby, you know, warming ‘em up (and also getting them unstuck).

2. Line a bit of shredded lettuce down the centre of the wrap, then add a reasonable dollop of your filling. Add cheese, avocado, carrot and sour cream. Spoil yourself.

3. Fold the wrap in half – then fold one end back over the top of that, thereby holding everything in place.

4. Eat it while watching a favourite DVD … and let your existential despair be washed away on a tide of Mexican-food goodness!
