DIRECTIONS

  • To make pico de gallo sauce:
  • Combine all ingredients specified for the sauce.
  • Let sit for at least a half hour so flavors will blend. Set aside.
  • To make pesto:
  • Put cilantro and garlic in a food processor and process until finely chopped.
  • With machine on, gradually add olive oil. Season and blend in cheese. Set aside.
  • To make filling:
  • Slice enough onion to equal about 1/2 cup. Sauté with margarine in a small cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook past translucent stage until browned, about six to eight minutes.
  • Prepare about 2 cups of vegetables -- the combination depends on personal taste.
  • Cook all vegetables except mushrooms in lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of pesto over medium to medium-high heat.
  • When almost at al-dente stage, add sliced mushrooms.
  • Continue cooking for about one minute.
  • The remaining pesto can be refrigerated or frozen for future use.
  • Place vegetable mixture over sizzling onions, then spoon vegetable-onion mixture into center of warmed tortillas.
  • Top with condiments, to taste, then roll up tortillas.
  • Three tortillas make one very generous portion.
