I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pork and Pepper Burritos

Check out these baked pork and pepper burritos! You can sit down and enjoy them with some rice and your favourite toppings or just grab a wrap on the go for a quick handheld meal!

1 lb ground pork (or trio: beef, pork and veal)
1/3 cup diced onion
1 cup diced or sliced sweet bell pepper
2 tbsps minced garlic
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 can (the 5.5 oz/156 ml size) tomato paste
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 can (14 oz/398 ml size) refried beans
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
7 - 8" corn tortillas or roti
vegetable oil spray
2 or 3 tbsps salsa, with more for serving
sour cream and salsa verde to serve

Start by browning the meat in a large skillet 3-4 minutes, breaking it up while browning. Then add the onion, sweet pepper and garlic and fry another 3 minutes or until no pink remains in the meat.

Add the tomato paste and chili powder to the skillet and stir to coat then add the broth and salsa. Simmer about 10 minutes to reduce the liquid. Lay the tortillas or roti out on a work surface. I had these great seasoned roti that worked great with the filling and smelled wonderful while cooking! Spread some refried beans on each then divide the meat mixture and spoon it onto one side of the refried beans. Add some cheddar using about 1 cup.

Make the burritos by tucking in the sides then rolling up. Place them seam side down in an oiled 13 X 9" baking dish.

Give them a little vegetable oil spray then top with the remaining cheese.

Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes

You can serve them plain (easier to pick up and eat on the run)

Or go on and slather them with salsa, sour cream and salsa verde!
