Delicio Stuff

Thank you mom, for blogging about how I will blog about my "Delicio (dee-lish-o)Wraps". Since I can't make a liar out of her I figured I better post this recipe for everyone to enjoy.

This is a recipe I made up when Jack and I were first married. It's sort of a tostada type meal (sorry I have no pics). I have no exact measurements. Just make as much as your family will eat.

-Start with homemade Tortilla Shells.

2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. water

Mix all dry ingredients. Add water to ingredients, gradually while kneading. Work dough until smooth. Form dough into 2 inch balls and let stand for 5 minutes. Roll out each dough ball with rolling pin to desired round shape. Cook on hot griddle on each side until lightly brown, turning frequently. (We fry ours in oil, but you can just use a hot griddle too)

-Prepare white rice (approx. 1/4 cup prepared rice per person) Once rice is cooked, combine it with canned chicken or cubed baked chicken (as much as you want) add a packet of taco seasoning and prepare as directed on the taco seasoning packet. Set aside. (you can use less than a packet of seasoning- depending on the level of spice you want)

-Heat a can of refried beans.

-You can use whatever toppings your family likes. Some that we've used
sour cream
mixed vegies (my mom claims it's really good)

Once you've got everything heated up and all your topping ready it's time to eat. Start with a tortilla shell, spread a layer of refried beans on top, then spread a layer of rice/chicken mixture and top with whatever toppings you like.

Jack likes to fold his in half and eat like a taco. I like to keep mine flat and cut into pieces. You can pretty much do whatever you want.

It's super easy and SO good. Give me your feedback if you decide to try it.

Actually, I think you should make it and just invite us over :).

Did you know they sell raw tortillas at Costco? You just cook them and they're awesome. They taste fresh and homemade.

The Costco tortillas are really good!! Thanks for sharing can’t wait to try it!!... I’m going to have to share some recipes… I’ve been really thinking about it for a while, and some of my favorite recipe blogs that I’ve been finding!!... Now I just have to get my family to try new things… that is a real challenge the kids are good with it, but Chad is stuck in his ways most of the time… I use to try a new recipe at least once a week… I’m going to start just doing it, we’ll see what happens… hehehe
