To me, any dish with cream cheese is yummy, so I like this particular burrito. For servings, I'm estimating 2 burritos per person. In the U.S. you can buy canned pasilla sauce at www.mexgrocer,com/15104.html
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon powder (or 1 cube)
- 1 can of pasilla chili sauce
- 4 ounces pckg. cream cheese, cubed
- 25 flour tortillas
- Sautee the ground meat with the butter.
- Add bouillon cube or powder until meat is thoroughly cooked.
- Add the pasilla chili sauce and the cubed cream cheese.
- Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Fill the burritos with this preparation.
Well, I am not sure exactly what pasilla chili sauce is...but I tried to come as close as I could and used a tomato sauce I found in the Mexican food isle that was made with chilis, onion and spices, plus I added just a pinch more of cumin. It just happened that everyone was coming home at different times and I thought this might reheat well in the microwave as each of us came home and wanted to eat. We LOVED this burrito filling! I had some chopped tomato, lettuce, and some sour cream on the side. Full of flavor and easy, easy easy. Everyone requested that I make this one a "keeper"!!Thanks for this great recipe :)
I too couldn't find "Pasilla Chili Sauce", in the grocery store and I really thought I could, as all of our stores have a whole isle dedicated to Mexican food (most items are imported from Mexico). I used a 7.75 oz can of "Marca El Pato Salsa de Chile Fresco" instead. I also drained my meat before adding the sauce and used 4 oz. of cream cheese, since the recipe didn't state what sized package to use. It was perfect! My whole family loved it, so I will be making this burrito recipe often. Thanks so much Rosie for posting this wonderful recipe!
This was excellent. I did not know what pasilla chilli sauce was either, so I made my own, by clicking on chilli sauce (in recipe) zaar gave me the substitution, so that's what I made. 1 cup tomato sauce,1/4 cup brown sugar,2 tbsp vinegar,1/4 tsp cinnamon,dash of ground cloves,dash of ground allspice = 1 cup chili sauce. I used the whole cup. I also use the large flour tortillas, and made 8 of them. Thanks Mexi!
