‘Giraffe-Style’ Huevos Rancheros – or Mexican Open Wrap

Giraffe’s Huevos Rancheros Recipe - HalimaBobs
So a while ago I posted about my inaugural experience at Giraffe restaurant where I had this awesome brunch wrap which was basically all my favourite stuff on a tortilla.

Well, not only was it delicious, it was super simple too. So easy in fact, that I’ve recreated it myself at home and wanted to share the recipe with you.

I can hardly call this a recipe, as it requires almost no cooking. The wrap is essentially kept unwrapped and slathered in all manner of deliciousness including salsa, cheese, and avocado. There’s
a lot going on. And the going is good.

So here is my copycat of ‘Giraffe-style’ Huevos Rancheros – or Mexican open wrap…

Ingredients for mexican open wrap

  • 1 soft flour tortilla
  • A spoon of salsa (you can make your own by blending tin tomatoes with onions, green chilli and coriander. I cheated.)
  • Handful of grated cheddar cheese
  • Handful of sweetcorn
  • Half an avocado, sliced
  • Some cooked chicken, teared (leftover roast is ideal for this)
  • Handful of black olives

The beauty is, you can mix and match the ingredients to your heart’s content. You can even top with a fried egg if it’s for breakfast.

Method for mexican open wrap

Place the tortilla on a hot dry pan and let it heat on one side for a few seconds
Turn over the tortilla
Pile on the food with abandon, starting with the salsa first, followed by the cheese so it can melt.

And that is literally it.

Giraffe’s Huevos Rancheros – or Mexican open wrap… done!
