My mom had cooked some ground pork mixture several days ago. Now I wasn't sure at the time of what to make with them and since I tried my hand at making tortillas, I couldn't leave it with just making small taco-sized. No. I went ahead and made almost burrito-sized ones, too. Mwhahaha... Burrrrrito time!!!! So I decided to make a sort of "breakfast burrito" out of them. I had some lettuce that I had shredded the night before. Oh, I had every intention from the previous night of making burritos the next day. Slightly planned ahead so that I didn't have to buy any ingredients, but soon I find out that I didn't have any beans. I wish I did. As much as I love going to the market and buying necessary ingredients, my laziness to drive out conquers.
So I heat up the pork mixture, add in the shredded lettuce for that added crunch. Top with some shredded cheddar and voila! Add a couple dashes of hot sauce on mine and I'm good to go. Though, I need to practice my burrito wrapping practice skills. Looks like it want to bust out at the seams.
Makes 4 burritos.
2 torillas - burrito sized
1-2 c shredded lettuce
shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 lb ground pork
1 small bell pepper - chopped
1 small tomato - deseeded/chopped
1 garlic clove - chopped
1/2 small onion - chopped
1small potato - small chopped - optional
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the garlic in a tiny drizzle of olive oil. then add in the onion and cook until limp. Then the ground pork. Cook until the meat is browned.
Next add the tomato and the optional potato. Cook all together until the potato is tender.
Lightly heat the tortilla on an ungreased skillet or wrapped in foil in a 350˚F preheat oven for 5 minutes.
Place the filling like a log in the center of the tortilla. then the lettuce. Top with the cheese.
Roll up the burrito. With the filling facing you horizontally, wrap the bottom part over the filling, then fold in the sides and fold in the top. Wrap it in a piece of foil or serve as is with a side of hot sauce.
