Serving Size: Serves 4-6 Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1/2 minced Onion
  • 1 Poblano Pepper (Roasted, skin removed, seeded and minced)
  • 1 minced Jalapeno (Seeds removed)
  • 1 tsps Canola Oil
  • 3 minced Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tsps Cumin Powder
  • 28 oz Can of Crushed Tomatoes
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 Tortillas (burrito)
  • 4 oz shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 small dice Tomato
  • 3 sliced thin on a bias Scallions
  • 1 Can Black Beans (Drained and Rinsed)
  • Sour Cream
  • Heat up a large saute pan. Once hot, add your ground beef and cook until it's no longer pink. Drain through a sieve and reserve.
  • In the same saute pan, heat up 1 Teaspoon of Canola Oil. Add in your onion and cook for 5-8 minutes. Then add in your jalapeƱo, Garlic and cumin - cook another 2 minutes.
  • Now add back your drained meat. Now pour in your can of Crushed Tomatoes and add your mined Poblano Pepper. Season with a little salt and cook over a medium heat for at least 30 minutes (the longer you cook, the more the flavors will develop).
  • After cooking the meat at least 30 minutes, add in your drained/rinsed Black Beans and cook another 5-10 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a Cast Iron Skillet that is the exact same width as your tortillas, spray with non-stick cooking spray and lay down one tortilla. Top with your meat.bean mixture, add another tortilla, and repeat til you've topped with your 4th tortilla. Top that with the shredded cheddar and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling.
  • Garnish with Tomatoes, Scallions and Sour Cream if desired. *Feel free to add in cayenne if you want more heat - this dish is fairly mild which is great when serving a crowd with mixed tastes.
