i put ground beef, salsa, tomatoes, cheese and homemade spanish rice in a tortilla and went to town.
the spanish rice is what makes it and it’s crazy easy to first i didn’t think i’d be able to close it into a proper burrito and it would just be an embarrassingly gigantic taco…however, success was achieved.
keep an eye on these bad boys, they like to boil over.
as i make them i’ve been using less and less milk and that seems to help the the potatoes are nice and tender throw the cracker crumbs and then the cheese on top.
season the heck out of it with whatever spices you feel might add a little something- for instance i added dill but i know i didn’t taste any dill, specifically.i let that marinate for about 4 hours then threw the whole thing into a large pan and cooked until the chicken breasts were cooked through- turning only once.
i served it with cheesy potatoes and veggies but i think it would be quite delish over rice. The Canadian says, it’s all the same ingredients, why is it so great? so i decided to make a burrito because i miss chipotle, BTB, pancheros and the like.
i also chopped the onions super super tiny and mixed it right in there- a year ago this would have made me cry (i hated onions) bits of onion so small you can’t find them to pick them out! this is the infamous red wine incident recipe that i think can easily be rectified by not using so much red wine.
like amer used to say when we’d make it “the kids like it wet and the kids like dill” so no need to skimp on either.
pour in the wine and stir up all the bits that are stuck to the bottom of the pan.
when the wine is hot add the browned meat, thyme, garlic, orange zest strip, pepper and salt, bay leaves and beef stock.
the rice is good on a tortilla with cheese all by itself as a leftover snack.i can’t lie, i also put some taco bell hot sauce that i smuggled in from home. when i used to work at Amer’s in the Michigan Union in college i was mildly obsessed with the egg salad there.
luckily the recipe was easy- to both remember and reproduce.
oh, they did- and nothing could be you need:6 chicken breasts2 large onionsyellow mustardsoy saucesaltpeppergarlicdillthymevegetable oili started by throwing in 1 part yellow mustard, 1 part soy sauce and ½ part vegetable oil. can you use a half a part or do you have to change the others to be 2 and 2 so your ½ part will be 1?
