Usually, on saturdays, we eat pizza. But pizza is annoying if eaten eeeevery saturday, so I proposed to friends to start changing a bit the menu and include international yumminess. So today we went mexican, ay ay ay!!
We still didn't caught the difference between burrito, enchillada, tortillita, taco, gordita and whatsoever, but since we wanted to eat at Taco Bell's and weren't able to, we just made our own creations. We were like 6-10 persons, so I'll just give more or less the medium amount for 2-4 persons. Tongue

For the tortillas:

    1 egg
    4 tablespoons flour
    a bit of salt
    2 cups of milk (or might be 2-4.. read the instructions)

Beat the eggs, add one cup of milk and the salt, and start mixing. The add slowly milk until the mixture is not too liquid, but neither too thick, it must at the point where it is thick enough to not be liquid.. great explication, lol. Then heat a pan with a bit of oil and put in the pan 2 table spoons of the egg mixture. The thinner the better. Let it get gold brown on both sides, and do so until you have a bunch of those tortilla pancakes omelette thingies. Tongue

The Filling:

    250gr minced meat
    1 tbsp salt
    1 tiny onion
    2 garlic cloves
    1 crushed tomato
    some slices of red, yellow and green pepper
    paprika powder

Preheat a pan with a bit of oil. add the finely chopped onion and garlic until they are golden, then add in pieces the minced meat and the salt, until it cooks a bit. add the paprika powder, the crushed tomato and the slices of pepper. Let the meat absorb some liquid. When it becomes a compact mix, it's ready.
Then just take a tortilla above, put 2 or 3 spoons of the filling, roll and.... serve! Cheesy
Some also put above a bit of cheese... but I liked it like this, simple and yummy!!
If with many friends, you can also buy some nachos and preparse some chilli, pepper, cheese or guacamole sauce... but I reserve this for another recipe. Wink
