Bella’s Stacked Tortilla

Mexican Beauty

Bella A Beauty

Bella in Spanish means pretty and my stacked warm tortillas are so pretty that you ALMOST don’t want to eat them. Yes, I said almost. But you will! We feast first with our eyes…

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1 tsp. Chili powder and of Smoked Paprika and of Cumin
2 Large Fresh Tomatoes, minced or 2/3 cup Canned Crushed Tomatoes
1/2 cup Humus
1 cup Leftover Cooked Meat (Chopped Chicken or Turkey, Ground Beef, or Shredded Pork)
4 Large Tortillas
1/2 cup Shredded Carrot
1 Green Onion, chopped

Heat oil in fry pan. Add garlic, sauté for a minute. Add spices for another minute. This step releases the oil in the dried spices. Add tomatoes. Cook over high heat for 5-8 minutes. Stir so it doesn’t burn. You want it to thicken up and reduce some.
In a small cook pot, heat your cold cooked meat. Either drizzle a little oil or water on top so that it doesn’t dry out.
Throw four tortillas onto a grill pan to heat them, or nuke them until warm.
On each warm tortilla, spread 1/4 of the tomato sauce, a dollop of humus, some meat, grated carrot, and chopped green onion.
Makes 4 Tortillas. Serves 2-4.

**Vegetarian Version; Substitute sauted mushroom’s for the meat portions.

***Luxed Up; Use shrimp instead of leftover cooked meat!
