This is a great take on cannelloni with a Mexican theme from tasty refried beans and salsa. It's also very easy to make since it's done in the microwave.

Serves: 6 

  • 500g beef mince
  • 500g tinned refried beans
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 250g cannelloni shells, uncooked
  • 1 1/4 cups (285ml) water
  • 500g picante salsa
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onions for garnish

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Grease a microwave-safe 20x30cm baking dish and set aside.
  2. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat and cook and stir the beef until crumbly, evenly browned and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  3. Mix together the cooked beef mince, refried beans, oregano and cumin in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into uncooked cannelloni shells and place the filled shells into the baking dish. Combine the water and salsa in a bowl and pour over the shells.
  4. Cover the dish with microwave-safe cling wrap, cut a few holes in the wrap with a knife to vent and microwave on High power for 10 minutes. Carefully pull back the cling wrap to avoid steam and turn the shells over with tongs. Replace the plastic and microwave an additional 15 to 20 minutes on Medium power until the shells are cooked and the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Pull off the cling wrap and spoon sour cream over the shells. Sprinkle with cheese and chopped spring onions for garnish.
