Green Chile Burros/Soft Tacos

This is a great 'pantry-friendly' meal that comes together quickly. I pulled this recipe from the Mesa Home Storage Booklet because it had the instructions written out :) , but my mom always makes hers almost exactly the same way - yum!

2 pints/large cans beef chunks (home bottled, or Kirkland brand)
2-3 Tbsp. flour
1 cup picante salsa
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chiles
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
Jalapenos, optional
Flour tortillas
Shredded cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
Chopped Tomato
Sour Cream

Saute onions in a little oil until soft, not brown. Drain the beef chunks and reserve the liquid. Add the chiles and the salsa to the onions and heat. Add flour to 1/4 cup of the liquid from the beef chunks to make a paste. Add remaining juice to the mixture, add more water as needed. Separate meat with fork and add to the mixture. Add the flour paste to the mixture and heat until thick enough to place on tortillas. You may add jalapenos if you like the extra heat. Garnish as desired.
