Beef & Potato Fiesta Melts
2 medium peeled potatoes
1 lb ground beef
1 – 2 tbsp FIESTA PARTY SEASONING by TASTEFULLY SIMPLE
2 cups shredded cheese (Mexican blend or pepper jack works well)
6-8 flour tortillas (size 8 inch)
3-4 tbsp favorite fresh or jar salsa (we use a red roasted one from Costco)
sour cream (optional)
Step 1 – Peel and dice potatoes (the smaller the better). Put them in a microwave safe glass bowl and add 1 tbsp water. Cover with plastic wrap or press n seal. Cook in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Remove plastic wrap and stir. Set aside to cool.
Step 2 – Brown the ground beef with a little salt & pepper if desired. Drain well. Set aside. Place the potatoes into the same pan the ground beef was in and cook over medium high heat until just starting to crisp a bit.
Step 3 – Add the ground beef and salsa to the potatoes.
Step 4 – Add the Fiesta Party Seasoning (we use 2 tbsp, but you can use just 1 if you don’t like a big kick of spice). Stir and cook on low until well combined and heated through (about 5 to 8 minutes).
Step 5 – While this mixture is cooking brown your tortillas on both sides a bit over a gas burner or warm them in the microwave to soften.
Step 6 – Assemble the melts by adding a little cheese (2 or 3 tbsp) on each tortilla.
Step 7 – Add the same amount of the meat mixture to the top of the cheese.
Step 8 – Add more cheese.
Step 9 – Roll up like a burrito, but be sure to flatten them out a bit with the palm of your hand once they are rolled up.
Step 10 – Place them all on a plate and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes to melt the cheese completely. Cut them on a diagonal and serve with sour cream, extra salsa or guacamole.
