Lorritos, or how to turn leftover meat into homestyle burritos.
We have been busy getting the last chores done in time to go camping next week, for a little vacation. And the first time we will take Erma (our little vintage trailer) out on a date!
Targeted chores call for quick (but still frugal) meals. I have been making it a habit to keep leftover meat with sauce or gravy neatly tucked in the freezer for a quick meal.

Lorritos, turning leftovers into homestyle burritos.
2-3 c leftover meat with gravy ( I had some leftover pork chops and cooking liquid)
1 t favorite tex-mex seasoning or taco seasoning
1 1/2-2 c beans, drained (canned or home-cooked)
1 c salsa, canned or homemade
6-8 whole-grain tortillas
1-1 1/2 c grated cheese
additional salsa and sour cream for serving
Heat the meat and gravy along with the seasoning, drained beans, and salsa.
Use a slotted spoon to evenly divide the meat mixture between the tortillas.
Roll up and place in a 9X13 baking pan.
Spoon the gravy/salsa mixture over the rolled tortillas.
Sprinkle with the cheese.
Bake 30 minutes.
PS. Now meet Erma!
