Recipe Swap Thursday - Cheesy Burritos & Mexi-Fries

This week, we tried a 'new' recipe - but like usual, I added and modified and revamped it to make it more interesting. I then decided to pair it with "Mexi-Fries". The result was good - everyone ate well and agreed it was a "do again" meal.

Cheesy Beef Burritos
1 lb hamburger
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup salsa
6ea 10" flour tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 diced green onions
6 leaves, chopped fine, romaine lettuce
1 tomato, diced
sour cream

Scramble fry hamburger until nearly done, add chili powder and cook until done. Drain if necessary and then add salsa. Simmer on low. Stir in about 3/4 cup of shredded cheese, stir until melted. Keep warm while tortillas heat.

Warm tortillas in oven (450 F for 7 or 8 minutes - wrapped in foil).

Remove hot tortillas, place spoonful of meat mixture down centre of tortilla, top with shredded lettuce, tomato, green onion and sour cream. Add a sprinkle more shredded cheese if desired. Roll tightly and slice in half. Repeat until all tortillas and fillings are used.

Makes 6 servings, 1 burrito each.

16 oz Tater tots
3 - 4 tbsp Cheeze Whiz
3 - 5 tsp Enchilada Sauce
Sour cream, if desired

Cook tater tots according to package directions. Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of Cheeze Whiz in microwave, when nearly melted, add 3 to 5 teaspoons of enchilada sauce. Stir and heat another 30 seconds.

Put 9 to 12 tots on each plate, top with Cheeze Sauce and a dollop of sour cream. Makes 6 generous servings.
