Yield: Makes 8 servings.


Step 1: Generously season lamb on all sides with salt and pepper. Place the meat in a bowl and keep seasoning with the lemon juice, oregano, dried chilies, garlic and some oil. Let it stand for 10-15 min.

Step 2: Sautee the meat in a hot pan without adding more oil.

Step 3: Warm the tortillas in a hot pan and sprinkle them with some drops of water. Wrap them with a tea towel to keep them warm.

Step 4: Spread 1 tbsp of the refried beans down center of each tortilla. Put a portion of the meat, add some coriander, 1 spoon of sauce and roll up burrito style. Cut in half before serving.


  • a) Serve with avocado slices or side of guacamole.
  • b) Use chicken instead of lamb, if desired.
  • c) If you cannot roll it up as a burrito style, just add the filling to the tortilla and fold it half.
  • d) Serve with Mexican rice as a side dish, to make it a main course.
