Tortillas mexicanas


When we have done the Mexican homemade tortillas , We can fill them what we want, my mother usually make two types of filling: with meat and chicken.

The filling of minced meat:

  • 500 g. pork
  • 500 g. veal
  • it
  • to
  • onion
  • species to taste: pepper, it, cumin, etc.
  • lemon
  • olive oil

Mix the two types of meat in a bowl, season it with spices that we like, add a squeeze of lemon and chopped garlic and onion cut very thin. Leave in the bowl,some 24 time, covered with a cloth and put in the fridge. In this way the meat gets a lot of flavor.

Fry the meat in hot olive oil, until it is well done.


Of the relleno chicken the bird

  • 2 chicken breast (ENTER breasts)
  • spices
  • Chorrito vino blanco
  • lemon
  • olive oil
  • green pepper
  • red tomatoes

We wash the chicken, and cut not too big studs, we add salt and pepper and spices we gusto.Cortamos green pepper and red small pieces and add it. Let stand to take the taste in the fridge, during 24 hours.

Fry the chicken in a pan with olive oil, when we are doradito we add a glass of white wine and let reduce. We can add a bit of grated tomato, so that the chicken does not stay so dry.

These two fills are very easy to make and match with different species.

We can fill our tortillas with meat,  salad, tomatoes, sliced ​​olives, etc., go to the limit is our imagination.

H hope you enjoy it
