Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Stuffed Burrito. To make this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Wild Idea Buffalo Spicy Stir Fry Strips, Cauliflower Rice, Butter, Olive Oil, Onion, Bell Peppers, Jill’s Mexican Seasoning, Salt, Burrito Sized Tortillas, and Mexican Shredded Cheese. My mouth is just watering reading about these! You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

Stuffed Burrito
A whole meal wrapped up in a tortilla. If you’re looking for a keto burrito, use iceberg lettuce leaves and voilà! Or, toss it together in a bowl! Whichever way – it’s el-yummo!
Ingredients: (Serves 2 to 4)

1 – 8 ounce package Wild Idea Buffalo Spicy Stir Fry Strips
1 – cup cauliflower rice
1 – tablespoon butter +
¼ – cup olive oil
½ – onion, sliced
½ – red & green bell pepper, sliced
Jill’s Mexican Seasoning or other Mexican seasonings
Salt
2 – burrito sized tortillas
6 – ounces shredded Mexican cheese

Preparation: (You will need a large skillet and a griddle.)

1 – In a large heavy skillet, over medium high heat, add the butter and the cauliflower rice. Sprinkle with Mexican seasonings and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally, until al dente, then add ¼ cup water and cover to steam until tender. Transfer to a bowl.
2 – In the same skillet add a tablespoon of olive oil and the onions. Add a sprinkle of Mexican seasonings and a pinch of salt. Sauté until tender, then push to one edge of the pan and slide that portion of the pan off the heat.
3 – Add a little more olive oil and the peppers. Again, add a sprinkle of Mexican seasonings and a pinch of salt. Sauté until tender, then push to the edge of the pan, under the onions.
4 – Add about a tablespoon more of olive oil and toss in the Stir Fry Strips. Add a sprinkle of Mexican seasonings and push around for a quick sauté, about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
5 – Lightly warm the tortillas in the microwave and butter one side. Place the buttered side on a medium high griddle. Top each with 3 ounces of shredded cheese, ensuring you get the edges (it’s the glue). When lightly toasted, remove from the griddle and pile the prepared ingredients mostly in the middle. Tuck the ends in and roll it up, squeezing a bit at the end to seal.
Serve with your favorite condiments or add them before you roll it up!
Note: Once you start eating it, it’s a bit of a commitment… but one you won’t mind! ; )
