Whether you live in the city or the country, far away from Kansas, or right down the road, come on in and sit awhile. Pull up a comfy chair, I'd love to visit. I plan to share about life on the farm, the abundant love of a father for his daughter, kitchen experiences, and much more!
Lettuce - Iceberg (I used the bagged shredded for convenience)
Chili seasoning - any brand will work, but my friend swears by Williams, in the silver packet.
I usually buy it but had a large canister from Sam's.
Canola oil (1/2 cup)
Dinner plate or platter
Cake pan lined with foil, spray foil with Pam.
Tongs/spatula - something to pull tortillas out of pans
The assembly line is the following:
Skillet with water and chili seasoning mixed together, put on very low heat. Continue on low heat. Use whisk to mix and break up seasoning.
Skillet - and you will use the canola oil in this skillet
but ONLY put a tiny bit. Retain on low heat.
You take the tortilla, dip in the water/seasoning for just abit, pull out. Let excess liquid slide off, back into skillet. Now you will lay the tortilla in the skillet of oil, just long enough to retain the color. Flip tortilla, wait. Then put on plate, fill with hamburger, lettuce, and cheese.
Fold up and lay folded side down in cake pan. Continue to make and stack them until the cake pan is full.
Cover the cake pan tightly with foil, put in oven at 350 degrees to heat through, about 30 minutes. I usually wait until my cheese is melted.
This is what my kitchen looks like when I am done.
See...... messy kitchen!
I also make cheese ones. Same procedure, no meat or lettuce! My older girls prefer the cheese ones!
I have made the beef filled ones without lettuce, but honestly for some reason, I do not care for them.
