Now onto the making of Minced Meat Burritos
The modern, mongrelized burrito is more filling than a burger and lighter than fish and chips. The foodies in Britain are clutching to the burrito.
It is a primary meat component seasoned with condiments such as salsa, cheese, sour cream, etc with cooking juices making it tender. These are stuffed with chicken and a treat for taste buds. Flour tortillas differ from the corn tortillas. These are larger and thinner thanks to the gluten in the flour making the dough elongate.
Now let us see the ingredients needed for making Minced Meat Burritos.
Minced Meat Burrito Recipe
The Ingredients required are plain flour, baking powder, salt, vegetable oil, milk, olive oil, minced chicken, garlic cloves, dried oregano or mixed herbs and green chilies.
Stir the flour and baking powder to mix them in a large bowl. Add the salt and vegetable to the lukewarm milk and whisk briefly. Mix the milk to the flour and make a sticky dough.
Now knead the dough vigorously for 2 minutes. After 10 minutes, work on the rolled pieces of dough and pat them into a 5-inch circle.
Using a rolling pin, make a 7-inch tortilla with less than ¼ inch thickness. Transfer the tortilla to a hot skillet to blister.
Cook for 30 seconds. Now turn it and place the tortillas, in a napkin-lined basket, and cover with aluminum foil.
Before serving tortillas, thaw them to room temperature, wrap them in aluminum foil, and heat up in a warm oven. But Microwaving poses the risk of toughening them.
To prepare the filling, heat the oil in a pan and add the minced meat. Fry for 8 minutes until it turns brown. Then add the garlic, salt, herbs, and chilies and fry it for another 3 minutes.
Place 3 tablespoons of filling on each tortilla and roll-up.
After placing in an ovenproof dish bake it for 20 minutes until the surface turns golden brown. Serve with cheese, sour cream, or yogurt.
