A family favorite…brings back memories of Texas!

What you will need:

1lb Hamburger

Chili Powder

Cominos (Cumin Seed)

1 dozen tortillas (the thinnest you can find)- corn or flour

1 medium Onion, chopped finally

8oz Colby/Jack Cheese, grated

Directions:

Chop the onion and saute with the hamburger. Add cominos, chili powder, and salt to taste. Cook together until the hamburger is browned. Drain. Add 1/3 of the grated cheese and warm slightly until the cheese is melted and makes the mixture stick together well. You can also use turkey or bison.

Warm the tortillas between 2 paper towels splashed with water in the microwave for 30 seconds

Make a gravy in a small saute pan out of chili powder, a little of the grease from the hamburger, water, and flour stirred together. Cook this on low untill it has the texture of a thin gravy. You can also use a can or substitute the grease for olive oil.

Prepare work area next to stove so you can work with the gravy in the pan, a plate for rolling the tortillas, and a baking pan for the tortillas. Take one warmed tortilla at a time and run it through the gravy to dampen and then place it on the plate. Do a few tortillas like this to stake them up with gravy between each tortilla. Using your hands, take some of the hamburger/cheese mixture, squeeze it into shape and place it in the tortilla and roll-up. Now, transfer the rolled tortilla to the baking pan.

Repeat till all the tortillas are full and baking pan is assembled. Cover with remaining grated cheese. Cover pan with foil and bake for 20min at 350 degrees. Serve with cooked beans, sour cream, and hot sauce!

Enjoy!
