So what was this yummy dinner? Josephina-inspired burritos. We are currently listening to the books about the American Girl Josephina. We are on the last one and have enjoyed them a lot. Josephina is a young girl from New Mexico, living near Santa Fe in the early 1800s. Her little pet is a goat and they talk about goats being needed for meat, milk, and cheese.
I grew up in New Mexico so green chili is in my blood. I LOVE green chili! I put them in lots of things! Tonight’s dinner was a natural outcome of listening to Josephina’s books and loving green chili. Goat cheese and green chili – YUM!!!
On to the recipe –
Green Chili Goat Cheese Burritos
1 lb ground meat
1/4 of an onion, minced
salt – to taste
pepper – to taste
garlic powder – to taste
diced green chili – fresh or canned (I am picky – mine has to be from New Mexico! It just tastes better.)
2-4 oz crumbled goat cheese
1 – Brown 1 lb of ground meat with 1/4 of an onion, minced, until done. (We use turkey in our house but you could use whatever you want.)
2 – Season your meat to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. (I use a lot of garlic powder!)
3 – Add 3 large spoonfuls of diced green chili. (This is probably about the equivalent of a 4 ounce can if you are buying it in a can.) You can add more or less to satisfy you desired heat and flavor level. I would have added more but the girls were going to be eating this as well.
4 – Add 2 – 4 ounces of crumbled goat cheese and stir well. As the goat cheese melts, it will stir throughout the mixture well.
5 – Serve rolled up in warm flour tortillas.
