|My son's plate... no toppings for him instead i put them on the side.|
All he wanted was salsa to dip things into anyways.
Serves 3 or 4 people
1- 2 Burritos each
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of salsa verde medium (I used La Victoria - just because I knew it wasn't too spicy for my kiddo)
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 Tbs taco seasoning homemade or store bought
1 & 1/2 cups of cooked and shredded corned beef
1 package soft taco size tortillas
1 cup or more your favorite shredded cheese ( I used sharp cheddar)
optional taco toppings: extra salsa, cilantro, chopped green onion, sliced avocado, sour cream, shredded lettuce...ect
1. In a large skillet bring the water, salsa up to a boil. Add in the meat chunks. Reduce heat to low and simmer.
2. Add in the taco seasoning, green pepper, and chopped onion. The fat from the meat will help "saute" the veggies and the water will help the seasonings to really surround the meat. Continue cooking on low for 5 minutes or so until the veggies are soft and half of the water has been reduced. Add in the corn starch and stir for about 2 minutes and turn off the stove. The sauce will thicken.
3. In another skillet heat up some tortillas just until they are more flexible. Put about a 1/4- 1/2 cup of the meat/veg mixture in each tortilla. Then top the mixture with cheese, and if you want more salsa and avocado. Tuck the sides in and roll the tortilla to look like a burrito Put them seam side back down on to the same skillet that warmed the tortilla for a 3-5 minutes to make sure the cheese melts over low heat. If you want a crunchier texture cook for 5-10 minutes flipping it when it looking more golden brown.
4. Top the finished tortillas with shredded lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cilantro, green onion = anything you want. Treat it like a taco. For me this meant more avocado! Yum!!
