Fido ®™'s Note:
Hello again, 'Zaar doggies - it's me, Fido. Do you remember that I told you how I was using my "Fido's Favourite Food" (recipe ID # 24812) as bait to try and get a date with a cute little poodle that lives down the street? Well, it worked! She (Fifi is her name) is a very good cook herself, as it turns out. The other day she brought me some of these burritos and, let me tell you, they beat the living daylights out of that Kibbles 'n Bits stuff that my humans are forever dumping in my dish. So, of course, I just had to ask her for the recipe. She did make a point of saying that she feels that it's very important to use ingredients (or ingredient combinations) that your humans don't care for - this prevents them from eating YOUR burritos! Prep time includes back yard potty break time.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3/4 lb liver, cooked and chopped or cut into strips ("or" other meat that the humans don’t like, Vegetarian pooches can substitute "meatless" meat, "or")
- 1 (8 ounce) jar mild taco sauce (take a quick taste of the stuff in the fridge- if it sends you running to your water dish, forget it)
- 2 -4 cloves garlic, minced (ah, who’s counting, anyway)
- 3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
- 2 cups canned sweet potatoes or 2 cups chopped rutabagas, cooked and mashed
- 1 cup black beans, rinsed
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 3 -4 bouillon cubes, crushed ("or" equivalent powdered bouillon)
- 8 -12 large flour tortillas
- 6 tablespoons your human's favourite Mexican blend cheese, shredded
- 6 tablespoons your favourite vegetables, chopped (can be raw "or" cooked)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
- 1Fetch a large skillet and heat the oil in it over medium heat until hot.
- 2Add garlic; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until tender.
- 3Paw in the peanut butter, sweet potatoes or rutabaga, and beans; mash slightly (you can mash them with the tip of your nose, if its flat and clean).
- 4Add cumin, cinnamon and chili powder, beef bouillon; mix well.
- 5Reduce heat to low; add beef and taco sauce, cover and simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally (dont stir with your paws they might get burned and youd have to make an unplanned trip to the vet!) Meanwhile, heat the tortillas according to package directions.
- 6To serve, spoon and spread a pawful of the mixture across centre third of each tortilla with a strip or a few chunks of meat in the center.
- 7Top each with 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 teaspoon cilantro, and 1 tablespoon cheese (spread to cover mixture) I spotted a couple of overripe bananas in the humans fruit bowl, so I sliced them up and put them on top of the cheese woof!
- 8Fold sides of each tortilla 1 inch over filling.
- 9Fold bottom 1/3 of tortilla over filling; roll again to enclose filling.
- 10Eat one to ensure that they are fit for canine consumption and place the others individually in small airtight freezer baggies they freeze very well and will last about 3 months in the freezer reheat the frozen ones in a 275°F to 300°F oven until they are thawed and gently heated through.
