Fast and Easy Beef and Potato Burritos Recipe 2010-11-19 16:08:45

Ingredients

  1. 1 large baking potato
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
    3/4 pound ground beef
    1 onion, chopped
    1 jalapeno chile, finely chopped
    1 can (14 ounces) chopped tomatoes with juice
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons paprika
    Coarse salt
    4 flour tortillas (10-inch)
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
    1/4 cup grated Monterey Jack
    1/4 cup fresh cilantro (optional)
    1 lime, plus wedges for garnish

Directions

  1. Peel potatoes; cut into 1/2-inch dice. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add potato; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 6 minutes.
  2. Add beef, onion, and jalapeno; cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until beef is thoroughly browned, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and juice, cumin, paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt; cook until liquid has evaporated, about 6 minutes.
  3. Heat tortillas, one at a time, in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, turning once, until lightly browned, about 10 seconds.
  4. Leaving space on bottom and sides, layer tortillas with sour cream, lettuce, beef mixture, cheese, and cilantro, if using; squeeze lime juice on top. Fold bottom upward, covering filling by 2 inches. Fold each side to overlap, leaving the top end open. Serve garnished with lime wedges.

Serves 4.
