Hello!! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far!! 

I spent the day cooking up some new recipes, cleaning and packing for the move. I've lived in the same place for 5 years and didn't realize how much stuff I actually accumulated in that time. 

I have so many boxes of stuff to donate to the thrift store. It feels nice to go through everything. 

We are less than 4 weeks from closing on the house. My daughter and I got to see the inside of the house on Tuesday. It was SO exciting! Most of the inside is completed.

Since it's a Habitat for Humanity home, we haven't seen much of the inside progress so far, thus making it extra exciting.

I can't wait to have a brand new kitchen to cook in, and dining space to entertain.

Today's recipe comes from my sister Shannon's kitchen. 

We went to visit her a couple weekends ago, and she made these Wet Burritos! This isn't the first time she's made them for us. 

Shannon's been making them for years, since she lived in Grand Rapids, MI.

There's a restaurant/bar there, Beltline and they serve these wonderful wet burritos. This is the copycat of the ones you can try there, for a fraction of the price, at home.

They are super saucy and the sauce is such a unique blend of ingredients. Similar to an enchilada, but bigger and better tasting in my opinion. 

 They taste fantastic topped with some guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo. Serve with some rice for a complete meal!

What are the ingredients in this recipe??

  • Cumin: Part of the parsley family and native to southwestern Asia including the Middle East. The dried seeds are used as a spice, especially ground and can be found in Mexican recipes or curry powder. 
  • Flour tortillas: This thin, soft flatbread made from wheat flour is easy to use and great for enchiladas. You can make them homemade, or use store bought like I did. They contain less than 100 calories per tortilla. 
  • Ground beef: One of my absolute favorite meats to use in recipes! I buy 90% lean ground beef in bulk at Sam's Club or the meat market, then package into one pound packages with freezer paper for our meals!
  • Onion: The onion is a vegetable that is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. It's relatives include the garlic, shallot, leek, and chive. Onions contain antioxidants, red onions have the highest antioxidant amount.  Onions produce the chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide. This irritant floats up from the chopped onion and causes tears. Chill the onion prior to chopping to reduce irritation.
