Thanks to the good people over at Hungry Happenings, your dinner can be spicier than a summer day in the Arizona desert. Muy caliente!  What makes is this recipe so fabulous is that the burrito filling is customizable to whatever you want! Don’t like onions? Don’t use them. Don’t like corn? Don’t use them. Black beans give you gas? Don’t use them.  The trick is the homemade tortilla dough, which is a lot easier than it sounds.

Ingredients:

Tortillas:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup lard or shortening
  • ¾ cup water
Burrito Filling
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons black beans
  • 6 tablespoons corn
  • 6 tablespoons chopped tomatoes
Egg wash:
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
Optional Sauces
  • sour cream, guacamole, salsa
