Chile Verde Burritos

This is a recipe that comes from my dad's family.
These burritos are soo good. And easy to make.
I gave them to the hubs to eat for the first time and he was in love!

Chile Verde Burritos

2lbs Pork, cubed
1/4 C. Flour
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Cans Original Rotel
1 can Green Chiles
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp Corn Startch
2 C. Water and 2 tsp Water
6 Potatoes
Flour Tortillas
Mozarella or Cheddar Cheese

1. Slice potatoes thinly, in pan cook potatoes with a small amount of oil and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until potatoes are cooked through and soft.
2. While potatoes are cooking, get ziplock bag, pour 1/4 c. flour in baggie, add pork in bag and shake until the pork is coated in the flour.
3. Heat about 1 Tbsp oil in pan, once it is pretty hot, pour pork in the pan and cook pork until pork is cooked through and browned.
4. Once pork is cooked, pour into the pan with the pork 2 C. water, rotel, green chiles, and garlic.
Bring to a boil. If the misture is too thin, add corn startch to thicken. I find that this works best by putting the 1 Tbsp corn startch with 2 tsp water in a baggie, with your fingers work the corn startch mix in the baggie until it is mixed and there are no lumps (this prevents lumps in your sauce and works absolutely great in gravy)  pour corn startch mix in the sauce mixture, mix and simmer sauce for about 5 minutes.
5. Now get your tortillas, put in some potatoes, pour in the chile verde sauce and add some cheese. I like to add the chile verde sauce on top of the burrito too.


I am sure there are tons of versions of chile verde out there, and maybe mine isn't too authentic, but I really love these, they are easy and so good. Hope you like them too.

Holy jeez this sounds soooo good. I'm not a huge pork fan, so I may try it with chicken. Okay, I'm *definitely* going to try it with chicken. And thanks for the tip on the cornstarch/water in a bag--I never would've thought of that and I hate when my sauces get lumpy!! :)
