chipotle cumin corianderDid you have a long week at work? But you still have a bit of energy left to cook but it needs to be simple? You want to enjoy simple food but with very satisfying umami? I often end up making this simple dish that I can easily eat with the least amount of utensils as possible: wraps!

These bad boys have a bit of everything. Sweet because of the potato, beans, cumin, and coriander. Sour in the salsa, fatty in the guacamole and cheese. And hot and smokey thanks to the ground chipotle. 

Inspirational credits go to our friend Bronwyn and Adriaan, but we’ve added some Bold Spices twists to it. 

Our friendly neighbor El Jefe ( in our Aalsmeer production space has great taco tortillas for this recipe and if you think it’s not hot enough, feel free to add some of his hot sauces.
