I'm not sure how authentic this is, but it's a good one!


  • Wet Burritos

    • 1 lb. ground turkey or beef,
    • 1 can refried beans,
    • 1 pkt. taco seasoning,
    • 1 c. water,
    • 10 large flour tortillas,
    • 8 oz. shredded cheddar,
    • 2 chopped tomatoes,
    • 1 to 1 1/2 c. chopped lettuce,
    • 1 medium diced onion,
    • 1 can mild enchilada sauce,
    • 1 can cream of chicken soup.

    Brown and drain the ground meat. Add refried beans, taco seasoning and water. Stir well and simmer for 15 minutes over low heat. Now come the hard part: Divide the meat/beans into 10 fairly equal parts. Doing one at a time, place a part of the meat/bean mixture on a warmed tortilla, top with some tomatoes, lettuce and onion. Roll the tortillas according the directions on the tortilla package, being sure to tuck the ends in. Place in a 9 x 13 casserole dish or pan. Repeat with each tortilla. Mix enchilada sauce and chicken soup together and pour over the top of the burritos. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake 30 to 40 minutes at 350. These may be a bit too spicy hot for young kids (mine love them) but any leftovers will keep in the fridge for a few days

Carne Asada

  • Yield: Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds flank or skirt steak
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Marinade:

    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and minced
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin seed (best to lightly toast the seeds first, then grind them)
    • 1 large handful fresh cilantro, leaves and stems, finely chopped (great flavor in the stems)
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 limes, juiced
    • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 cup olive oil

Method

1 Lay the flank steak in a large non-reactive bowl or baking dish. Combine marinade ingredients and pour the marinade over the steak. Make sure each piece is well coated. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.

2 Preheat your grill over medium-high flame (you can also use a cast iron grill pan on high heat for stove-top cooking). Brush the grates with a little oil to prevent the meat from sticking. Remove the steak from the marinade. If you are cooking indoors, you may want to brush off excess marinade as the bits may burn and smoke on the hot pan. Season both sides of the steak pieces with salt and pepper. Grill the pieces for a few minutes only, on each side, depending on how thin they are, until medium rare to well done, to your preference. You may need to work in batches. Remove the steak pieces to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak across the grain on a diagonal.

(Optional) Serve with warm tortillas (flour or corn). Warm the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side in a dry skillet or on the grill, until toasty and pliable. Alternatively, you can warm tortillas in a microwave: heating just one or two at a time, place tortillas on a paper towel and microwave them for 15 to 20 seconds each on high.
