Flour tortillas filled with pork or chicken, chile powder, garlic and oregano. A typical Mexican dish that can be part of a main dish or used as an appetizer.
Preparation time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 60 minutes, Serves: 2 - 4 


1 lb lean boneless pork butt or shoulder (or an equal amount of chicken breasts)
1 1/2 cups water
3 Tbsp mild red chile powder
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry oregano
2 tsp red wine vinegar
6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

Sour cream
Shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
Shredded lettuce
Chopped tomatoes


Cut the chicken or pork into about 1 inch cubes.

Place the meat in a large saucepan over medium high heat and add the water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 hour if using pork, 25 minutes if using chicken. Skim off any excess fat that forms at the surface.

Add the chile powder, garlic, salt, oregano and vinegar to the meat. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 35 to 45 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

Warm the tortillas in the oven (wrapped in aluminum foil) or in a microwave oven.

Spoon 1/6th of the pork or chicken mixture filling along the center of each tortilla. Top with any of the garnishes (use whatever you like), fold the left and right sides of the tortilla, then roll.
