I live in a busy world. At any one time you can find me either working, working my on the side job, following the boys to a football, basketball, baseball game, track meet, horse riding lessons, etc. or at home trying to keep up on the piles of laundry and cooking food. Sometimes, I just want that one super easy meal that will please all the mouths in my house. When that happens, I turn to homemade chili crispitos. They are one of the favorites at school for R & M and so I’ve found a recipe for home that they enjoy!
- 1lb. ground beef
- taco seasoning
- 1/4-1/2c. salsa or picante sauce
- flour tortillas
- shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican cheese)
Brown your hamburger, which to save time I use the Pampered Chef Micro Cooker . I also use their Mix & Chop to grind up the cooked ground beef with ease. After browning the ground beef, add the taco seasoning and cook for another minute to thicken the water/sauce. Then, stir in the salsa or picante sauce You can choose a spice level that is comfortable for you and your family. You can also use a quantity based on your families likings. Finally, stir in about 1 cup of shredded cheddar. Place about 1/4-1/3c. of the beef mixture in the center of your tortilla and roll up as tightly as possible. Place in a greased 9×13 pan. Sprinkle cheese over the top and bake until warm throughout.
Serve with taco sauce, salsa, or queso! Enjoy!
Tip: I typically double the recipe and then freeze part of them in individually wrapped packages (plastic wrap and then tin foil). I can remove a couple and warm them up in the microwave in a hurry!
