Easy home style burrito


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.

Cooking Method

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.
