So yesterday we talked about my favorite recipe for taco seasoning mix. If you didn’t see it, go back and take a read, or at least write down the recipe. You’ll need it. 🙂
There are several dishes I use this mix in, but this one is a new favorite inspired by the lovely folks at Tastes Better From Scratch. She’s right, the whole family loves this idea of a crispy wrap that isn’t deep fried or too heavy. We change up the flavors a bit and I like a wetter filling, so feel free to experiment until you find your taco nirvana!
Crispy Taco Wraps with Ultra Gel
1 pound ground meat, we like beef or turkey or a mixture of both
1/2 white onion, finely chopped1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2-1 can whole kernel corn, rinsed and drained
1 small can diced green chiles (opt)
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 batch Taco Seasoning Mix
2-4 Tablespoons water or broth
For the filling: Brown the ground meat in a large skillet, adding the chopped onion about half way through browning. Cook until meat is done through and onion is translucent. Add beans, corn, chiles, bell pepper and Taco Seasoning Mix. Stir well to combine and cook until veg is soft, adding water as needed to achieve desired thickness.
Lay out tortillas and assemble by layering sour cream, salsa, rice, taco meat and cheese. Fold in ends and cook on a hot skillet or electric skillet. For extra crisp brush or spray with olive oil before placing wraps on the skillet. Rotate until sides are golden and crispy. You may lose some filling in the turning, but I either just chalked that up to taste testing or shoved it back inside when I flipped the wrap back over.
Serve with fresh tomatoes and shredded lettuce.
