I haven't seen this recipe posted anywhere so I thought I would share it. most restaurants make this dish using beef. we have always used pork. it has been in my family since I was a little girl and everyone still requests it in the winter. but it is good all year round.

  • 3after the meat is done and is tender add in the diced tomatoes. if there is not much juice with the tomatoes ADD ANOTHER CAN. salt to taste.
  • 4turn the fire up and when it starts to boil, mix 1/2 cup of cornstarch with water and add to mixture to thicken. taste. if it is not hot enough to suit you add the crushed red peppers now.
  • 5warm a large flour tortilla add meat mixture with a little of the cheese. roll up. add more mixture to top of burrito add more cheese. if cheese does not melt on top put in microwave for few seconds then ENJOY!
