Well – the game is over and we got our pants beat off by the Texas Longhorns. They deserved to win because they outplayed us (OU). The best part of the day was what I served: Tex-Mex with a version of Pam’s Chili Cheese Dip from Om Nomalicious and Pa-Blam. Let’s not speak of the game again and get right to the steamed burritos!
1 Roast – any size.
1 Pint of grape or cherry tomatoes – These are very important as they are a natural meat tenderizer
1 dark beer
1 Onion – chopped
Jalapeno peppers, whole (optional according to taste)
1 Can Chicken broth
10 Flour tortillas
3 potatoes, peeled and chopped uniformly
2 Cups shredded cheese
Sear the roast in a skillet if you wish.
Add roast, whole tomatoes, beer, broth and onion to crock pot and cook on high for 10 hours.
Take out roast and shred then return to cook for 2 more hours.
I usually make it the day before and then place in fridge overnight. But, if you start early enough, you can do it all in one day.
Next you want to put the shredded meat in a strainer and strain the gravy out.
I also pick out the tomatoes which isn’t hard because they are still whole or just split.
Fry your cubed potatoes until done. I like them a little crusty on outside and tender on inside. Let cool.
That’s a little smoked paprika on the potatoes.
Lay down your tortilla and put some shredded cheese down, then meat and potatoes, then cheese dip and roll it up.
Wrap the burrito in foil and place in a steamer where the water is boiling.
Steam for about 30 minutes.
You can freeze them in the foil now for later eating or – go for it now.
Unwrap, slice, add Pam’s cheese dip on top if you like and eat!
Yes, that’s a paper plate but that’s what you use on game day!
Looks delicious. Perfect FB watching food. I’m hungry!
We taped the game but after seeing the score this morning, we decided not to even bother. 🙂 Even though I am a Cowboy, I still root for OU when we don’t play each other. LOL
I will have one of those, please 🙂 Looks fantastic. Can almost feel the juices running down my chin.
Because I love you, I will honor your request and not speak of the game. Because it’s never nice to remind a friend that they’ve been beaten. Good.
Let’s talk of these burritos (Wonderful!) and then of what you did with the tomatoes and the juice you strained off. I hope they are going to be a lovely, flavorful soup someday!
You are so funny – that’s why I love you! Next time you come to Texas I must drive down to greet you at the airport! And yes, I did put the tomatoes and beef broth into the freezer for our next stew! 🙂 I waste nothing – well, most nights but honestly sometimes I just don’t want to see it again…….ever!! xoxoxo!
Next time I come to Texas, how about you drive down to Houston and spend a weekend? Or we could meet in Dallas, but I really have never liked Dallas. But I’d go there for you. 🙂
That sounds wonderful!
I’m glad my dip went into something as amazing as these. I must make these soon because they look AMAZING!!
Looks amazing! I love Tex Mex 🙂
Despite the loss, you had amazing food!!!
I’ve scanned this recipe 3 times and I can’t find instructions for adding the potatoes. Are they eaten as a side?
Oh my goodness Wilda – sure enough, it’s been on the blog nearly a year and there was nothing about when to add the potatoes! I’m so sorry but I have fixed it……..you add the potatoes when you put the meat down. Thanks so much for catching that and for dropping by as well. Please do come back again!
