A New Recipe

Well, folks, I haven't come up with my "cheapy menu" yet, but last night Mom served a dish for supper that immediately stood out in my brain as something that could go on the list. Containing cabbage, frozen corn, carrots, and tortillas, the dish was quite tasty, as well as "cheap."

I've asked Mom for the recipe, which she adapted from a magazine, and here it is:

Beef and Cabbage Tortilla Wraps

16 Tortillas (This recipe has been doubled. You can 'half' it if 16 tortillas sounds like too much.)
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2 or 3 cups frozen corn
2 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup or so of BBQ sauce

Cook the beef and onion together in a skillet until the meat is no longer pink. Put in a bowl and add corn, cabbage, and carrots. Mix together. Spread a little BBQ sauce on each tortilla, then add the cabbage/carrot filling. (Mom used salsa, instead of BBQ sauce, for those in the family who don't like BBQ sauce.) Roll up tightly, and place in an ungreased 9x11 baking dish. (You'll need two dishes if you're using the doubled recipe version.) Bake at 350 for about ten minutes. Serve warm. Can be eaten "as is", but I added french onion dip and lettuce to mine. Yummy!

Yes, Am those cabbage tortillas were really good!!! I didn't care too much for the BQ sauce ones, but the ones with salsa really hit the spot! Of course, I think anything that has cabbage in it has to be good...;)
