Mexican food makes for a great change. Wraps and parcels are very simple and you can used whatever is left over in the fridge. Traditionally Burritos are usually spicy, but I suggest you have a bottle of tabasco and let the guests do their own seasoning above what you have put in the filling. You can use any meat, and this one uses chicken.
In a large skillet, cook the meat, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the garlic, seasoning, cheese and water. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes.
Place four tortillas on a microwave-safe plate; microwave on high for 20 seconds to make them soft and pliable. Place 1/2 cup of meat mixture on each; fold over sides and ends. Place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
Brush burritos with oil. Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly crisp. Serve with toppings.
