Serves: 4
Cook Time: 10 mins



12 baby artichokes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 medium onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 pound lean ground beef or sausage
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/3 bell pepper, chopped (red, green or yellow)
2 teaspoons cilantro, chopped
½ cup red enchilada sauce or 1 can tomato paste
Pinch of cumin
Salt and pepper to taste


Directions Baby artichoke preparation: Peel back and snap off petals until a yellow cone remains; cut off pale green tips. Cut in half and put in cold water with vinegar or lemon juice to prevent browning. Drain and cook in boiling water with salt and garlic to taste. Do not overcook baby artichokes.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Sauté Onions until clear; add garlic and stir.

Add ground beef, salt, cumin, and pepper; cook meat until brown. Add the rest of the ingredients and baby artichokes; mix together and stir until mixture boils.

Gradually stir in enchilada sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste, simmer for approximately 7-10 minutes.

Warm flour tortillas, roll up burritos and add shredded cheddar cheese if desired.
