Chili Tortilla Roll Ups

00:30:00

These tasty rolls can be made up ahead of time and cooked when you need them for a nice crisp exterior. Once assembled they also freeze well and will keep in a sealed container for up to a month. They’re also a great way to use up leftover chili that you might have.

STEP 1
In a medium pot, heat Canola Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp) over medium heat.
STEP 2
Add White Onion (1/2 cup) and Green Bell Pepper (1/2 cup) and sauté for 2 minutes.
STEP 3
Stir in Garlic (2 clove), Chili Powder (3 1/2 Tbsp), Ground Cumin (1 1/4 tsp) and Chipotle Chili Powder (1/4 tsp), and continue to cook for 1 minute.
STEP 4
Add Lean Ground Beef (0.75 lb) and cook until beef is browned, stirring occasionally and breaking apart the chunks.
STEP 5
Stir in Canned Beans in Tomato Sauce (1 can), Canned Black Beans (3/4 cup), Tomato Paste (1/4 cup), and Kosher Salt (1 tsp) and allow to simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes to meld flavors.
STEP 6
Place one 6-Inch Flour Tortillas (20) on a flat surface and spread with approximately 3 tablespoon of chili, leaving 1-inch border around. Top with 1 tablespoon of the Cheddar Cheese (1 1/4 cup).
STEP 7
Moisten the top inch of the tortilla with water. Starting from the bottom, roll tortilla shell up a third of the way. Fold in sides 1 1-1/2 inch and continue to roll forward, enclosing all the chili in a tubular shape.
STEP 8
Using a 2-inch skillet or shallow pot, add enough Canola Oil (to taste) to fill the pot with an inch of oil. Heat over medium until hot. Place about 6 chili rolls in hot oil with seam side down (don't overcrowd). Cook for about 2 minutes until golden. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
STEP 9
Remove with tongs to a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Cut in half diagonally and serve with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream if desired.
