My doctor recently told me to cut down on carbs and eat healthier meats. In response to that, I pigged out on carbs and unheathly meats at a Super Bowl party. To follow up, I had hot Italian sausage baked in a tortilla for lunch today.
I prefer corn over flour tortillas, but have come to appreciate flour tortillas when they aren’t soft. I like them with a little crunch and a little chewiness. I spiral cut some sausages last week and had two leftover. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQAfzdqANK8 In my fridge were a bag of flour tortillas (purchased prior to my doctor’s orders) that need to be used. Pork and tortillas? Sounds good to me! I heated the sausages in the toaster oven until hot, wrapped them in a tortilla and baked it until the a little crunchy on the outside. I figured it was a little plain and dressed it up with some chimichurri I had in the fridge. It was fantastic. The acidity of the chimichurri cut through the savory sausages to make a perfect sandwich. Parts of the tortilla were shatteringly crisp while others still chewy. I am going to miss eating like a fat kid.
