Baked Pork Burrito

I took a break from blogging and now getting back to the posting mode” is a nightmare. I keep on postponing and procrastinating. I decided to literally glue myself on the chair, today until I come up with one post. It wasn’t easy but am almost there now and I’m clearly more motivated. PHEW!!! Have a lovely day and enjoy the rest of the week!

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet and stir fry the pork, over high heat until slightly charred and no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Add the remaining oil and fry the onion and peppers, 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until charred but still crunchy.

Add the beans, rice and pork to the pan and stir fry 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add the lime juice. Remove from the heat.

Spoon the filling evenly over the 8 tortillas, roll them up and arrange them in a 10 x 9 oven dish.

Spoon the salsa over the tortillas

and top with the cheese.

Bake about 20 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.

 Serve immediately with guacamole or tomato salsa.
