This week I had small amounts of left overs that would not be enough to feed three people but by adding a few more ingredients I could make them stretch.I had left over roast, potatoes, beans, rice, mushroom soup, green onion, and a few flour burritos. I added a few more ingredients and made green chile burritos. My daughter is a vegetarian so I used the combination of the beans and rice to make a complete complete protein and made her a burrito. Follow through and I will show you how to make a delicious meal from leftovers. Let's get started.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 cup or more Pre-cooked roast cubed
1 Small can diced green chiles
1 Crushed garlic clove
4 Flour tortillas I used wheat
1/4 to 1/2 Cup Crema Mexicana or sour cream
1 Cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
1 Cup country fried potatoes
1/2 Cup Cream of Mushroom soup
Green onion and black olive for garnish, Optional
Salt and pepper to taste
Makes approximately 4 burritos
You will also need a small rectangle pan.
Step 2: Green Chile Sauce
Cream of Mushroom soup, Green chile,garlic and Crema Mexicana, or sour cream and season to taste.
Step 3: Spread Sauce on Burrito
I put the tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them so they are pliable.
Spread the sauce over the top.
Step 4: Layer Meat
Step 5: Layer Potatoes
Step 6: Layer Cheese
Step 7: Roll Burrito
Step 8: Get Ready to Bake
Lay the burritos seam side down into the pan
Step 9: Layer Topping
Spread remaining sauce over the burritos as shown
Sprinkle a little cheese over the top
Bake for 40 minutes or until the cheese is melted
Step 10: Garnish
I added a few potatoes over the top of the burritos the last five minutes of baking to use up the remaining potatoes on a couple of the burritos.
Add a few black olives and diced green onion for garnish.
Roger will have this for lunch tomorrow.
