Can you believe there are only a few weeks of winter left? And that means only a few more weeks of low and slow Mondays. I may cry. My slow cooker and I have had some major bonding moments and I am scrambling to narrow down the dozens of recipes I still want to test out to only 4 more. That or I may just continue slow cooker Monday’s through the spring. One recipe I knew I had to make was this beef filling. First, Mexican food is one of my go-to’s. Second… no really, I just live Mexican.
Handsome however, does not.
Whenever we go out to eat, it’s never Mexican. Unless I can bribe a friend to suggesting it as the location. That’s the only way I ever get Mexican. Or if I make tacos, or Gringo enchiladas. We may need a relationship counselor. He suffers through it though when I make things like this at home. And by suffer, I let him because I was in heaven! The flavor of the beef is awesome and the prep work is really easy. Add to that the delicious layers of guacamole, salsa, cheese, rice and beans. Oh sweet baby Jesus. This recipe will definitely be made again and again. Now I’m wondering how can I sneak four more Mexican slow cooker recipes into the round up. (think he’ll notice?)…
- large tortillas
- shredded cheese
- black beans
- beef filling
Lay the tortilla on a flat surface. Spread an even layer of guacamole, salsa, cheese, black beans, rice, and a large portion of shredded beef. Fold the ends up and wrap. If you are feeling feisty, toast the burrito in a preheated skillet over medium heat with a weight (like a plate) pressing down on top until golden. Flip and repeat.
Serve with sour cream and hot sauce, if desired. Live Mas.
