Kristi's Las Cruces Halloween Burritos

My friend Kristi has fond memories of eating these burritos at her town Halloween carnival.

1 lb of ground beef
1 small can of green chilies
1 chopped white onion
2 shredded potatoes (peeled first) I use a cheese grater

grated mozzarella

Sauté ground beef and onion, then add shredded potatoes, green chiles, salt and pepper. (I added a little garlic powder and cumin as well.) Spoon mixture into a flour tortilla and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Then individually wrap into tin foil and place in oven 350 for about 20 minutes. This steams each burrito and melts the cheese. These are great to send with family the next day for lunch. (You can also freeze the foil packages before baking and bake some at a later time.)

I got 9 medium burritos from the recipe as is. You can stretch this recipe by adding more potatoes.
