Not to hijack Wolley‘s Tamale thread…I started this one on Mexican food…
I combined Mexican and Italian with this recipe.

Sausage and Pepper Tacos for Two with a side of
a bowl of warm black beans, and a Bloody Mary
rimmed glass with lime and then celery salt👍

I had flour tortillas that I wanted to use up
So, I thought sausage and pepper tacos, why not?

I made up this recipe and it was delicious.
First I browned the tortillas fast in a dry cast iron skillet.

Then I cooked up 1/2 raw white rice….

Then I fried up 1 1/2 thin sliced green peppers
for a few minutes, then added one small thin sliced onion
with salt/pepper until soft and browned….then added 3 cloves
Of chopped garlic and then added 12 oz of crumpled sausage and sautéed until browned.

Then I put a half cup homemade enchilada sauce ( recipe below)
and a couple shots of hot sauce and simmered for a minute longer…

Then I made a slurry with 1 teaspoon corn starch and 3 tablespoons
of Water and mixed it in to thicken it up a bit, so that it didn’t drip
out of the tortilla.

First, I put on a layer of rice on the tortilla, and then I put on the
Sausage and Peppers…

Now for the cheese…I didn’t know if I was going to top
It with mozzarella or cheddar? Mozzarella won out.😄

I closed them with a toothpick…put them on a foiled tray…
Then in the very bottom of the air fryer just
325° for about 10 minutes. Watching them the last few minutes,
to make sure that they didn’t burn.
Served them with a dollop of sour cream and some hot sauce.

They were soo darn good. 👍😋unbelievably good. I skipped
Breakfast and lunch and I ate two of them…the head groundskeeper
didn’t ship breakfast or lunch and he ate 3 tortillas and two
Bowls of beans. 😄

Enchilada recipe…( I had a 1/2 cup pre made already
in the freezer)

Enchilada Recipe…( freezes well)
1 chopped medium onion
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 small (6 oz) can tomato paste
2 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin seed ( or powder)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( or more if you like it hot)
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

brown chopped onion a little olive oil...p
When browned enough -- add chopped garlic
and sauté a minute or so longer to lightly the
brown the garlic...add tomato paste and chicken
broth and spices/ salt and pepper and simmer for a few
minutes. ..Remove from and set aside until later.

Bowl of Black Beans
Here’s what I did…

2 cans (15 oz each)black beans with juice
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 chopped green pepper
2 cloves of chopped garlic

The spices…
Salt/Pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked Paprika
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 - 2 teaspoon chopped jalapeño peppers ( optional)
1 Tablespoon lime juice.
1 cup water…
Scallions for garnish and chopped cilantro or parsley

Sauté green pepper and onion until translucent
add chopped garlic and sauté a minute longer
Then add all the spices and sauté for a half a minute longer…

Then add the beans, water, jalapeño peppers, and the lime
Juice…bring to a boil, lower temperature and continue
simmering for about 10 - 15 minutes until it thickens up…
Taste for salt…
garnish with chopped scallions and
Cilantro or Parsley… I used parsley.
It was soo good!

This is it after it bakes in the air fryer ( you can do it in the oven as well)
when you put it on your plate (you first remove the toothpick) and open it up slightly,
and then top it with sour cream and hot sauce. 😋
