Everyone of you must have eaten the usual rolled burritos many times.  But have you ever thought of a large burrito piece on a flat baking dish in the shape of a pie where you need to cut it with a knife in pieces for serving?  Yep, you can make it and believe me, it's absolutely yummy!  It's very simple too.  Read everything below to learn this main dish.

I'll mention the ingredients in small quantities so that, if you're trying it the first time, your trial burrito pie will be a small one.  If you like it, you can then make a larger one next time by doubling the ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 pound (or half kg) lean ground beef or veal (Halal)
1 medium onion, chopped
Minced garlic and ginger, 1 teaspoonful each
6 or 3 large small green chillies, remove the seeds and chop (optional)
Half can tomatoes diced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
Half jar salsa sauce (if you prefer making your homemade sauce with tomatoes, please do so)
1 can beans, drained thoroughly and then fried a little
6 eight inch flour tortillas  (if you want to use whole wheat tortillas, go ahead)
1 packet shredded chedder cheese (Halal)


Method:

Cook the mince meat with onions, can tomatoes, ginger, garlic and chillies in the usual way by first frying the onions light golden-brown in minimal of cooking oil.  Then add mince meat, garlic and ginger paste.  Cook a little longer.  Add can diced tomatoes and chopped seedless chillies.  However, these chillies are optional.  Cook for another few minutes.  Add some water and cook on medium heat for one hour till water is dry and mince is cooked.  Now add half can diced tomatoes, half can salsa sauce and chopped green bell pepper.  Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes.  Remove from cooker and mix the drained & fried can beans with the mince. 

In a flat casserole dish (or you can even use a suitable greased alu foil dish) spread a thin layer of meat mixture.  Over it, place two tortillas.   Spread another layer of meat mixture over the tortillas.  Cover this second layer of meat mixture with grated cheese.  Over it, repeat this same arrangement of layers with the same ingredients left, ending with a layer of meat mixture and grated cheese. 

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350F for about 20 minutes until cheese looks a little brown and bubbly.

Tastes great if accompanied with lettuce & carrot salad with dressing of your choice, and hot mashed seasoned potatoes. 

That's it!  You're done with a meal to remember  teethsmile

Enjoy your supper folks!  teethsmile  teethsmile







You can also prepare it in a casserole
like this, in layers as explained in the recipe.

OK ---- u know what?  I tried this dish last Friday after we returned home from Jummah prayers.  It turned out just great.  I put some additional spices in the mince otherwise it tastes too bland and my folks don't like it.  It really tasted superb!  Next time I'll add a thicker layer of burritos.  Actually I already had those large flatbread size burritos.  So I cut each one into 3 or 4 pieces and arranged 2 pieces over each layer of mince.  This was the first time I made a burrito pie and I was scared that if I put a very thick layer of burrito, it might turn hard during baking.  But that doesn't happen as long as its properly placed between layers of mince.  Another variation, I also sprinkled some salsa sauce while sprinkling grated cheese over the mince in addition to mixing some salsa with the mince as stated in the recipe.  And I used fresh beans instead of the canned ones.  If you're using fresh beans, you have to put the chopped beans with the mince as soon as you start cooking the mince because fresh beans are hard and take time to get a little tender.

Thanks sister rose for this great idea!  We all loved it teethsmile

At last ... I made it too  Cheesy  it's really an awesome dish!  instead of tortillas I used whole-wheat flatbread because I already had a few in the fridge.  Flatbread is a larger and softer than tortilla.

Thank u rose for this grand discovery Smiley
