What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Palatable Possibilities: Unwrapped Burritos! Casual meals come in handy on those days that are filled with unlimited tasks, scheduled appointments, and day-to-day responsibilities. Or you just don’t feel like making a full-course meal. Presenting……burrito fixings! It has all the good stuff: seasoned meat, tasty jalapeños, shredded cheeses, fresh onions, tomatillos, and corn kernels. Always remember to add crunchy tortilla chips and chunky salsa. Think of it as sinfully wicked. Kinda like sneaking more pizza toppings, scooping out lasagna fillings, or gobbling up the creme “Stuf” in an Oreo® cookie. Guilty, as charged.
1 pound lean ground beef, browned and crumbled
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Jalapeño slices, for garnish
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 red onion, sliced
4 tomatillos, sliced and halved
1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Salsa, for dressing
Corn Tortilla Chips, for serving
Combine cooked ground beef, sea salt, garlic powder, and ground cumin. Keep warm, top with jalapeño slices; set aside. For the salad, in a medium bowl combine corn kernels, red onion slices, tomatillos, cilantro, cheddar cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese. Toss gently. To serve, arrange burrito fixings on the table, along with chips and salsa. Enjoy.
