Spicy Beef Burritos




Now that the holidays are over, what are we to do with the leftovers?  If you had beef instead of the traditional ham or turkey, stay tuned and I will show you a quick and easy way to spice up those leftovers.  How does some Spicy Beef Burritos sound?  

Ingredients:

1 pound of left over roast beef
1 onion diced
1 pat of butter
1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1 tablespoon of taco seasoning
1 cup of salsa
2 cups of water

Instructions:

Cook onion in the butter and olive oil, until translucent.  Add in dry seasonings and whisk until they form a paste.  Next add in the salsa, water and meat.  Simmer on medium until the meat and sauce are reduced by half.
Spoon into a warm tortilla, add some cheese and there you have it.  A quick and easy way to use up some leftovers and still keeping it interesting.  

Live, Laugh and Love.

Bonus Tips:

You use butter and olive oil together for two reasons, the butter gives flavor the olive oil prevents the butter from burning too soon.

When reducing something that means just letting the water evaporate.  Keep an on eye on it though you dont want it to reduce too much where all the water evaporates and you are left with a scorchted mess.
