Beef with Green Chile
Total : 45 min Prep : 10 min


    1½ pounds lean beef (such as sirloin)
    1 cups diced green chile
    span> (roasted and peeled, fresh or frozen)
    1 onion, sliced in rings
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    ½ teaspoon salt


    1. Cut beef into chunks or strips.
    2. Add all ingredients except cornstarch to skillet.
    3. Simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes. You may need to add a little water so mixture simmers well. (Don’t add too much water or mixture will get soupy.)

    5. Cook until cornstarch thickens (about 5 more minutes).

    Note: This dish can be served as an entrée or as a burrito filling. When you buy flour tortillas for burritos, choose those that are thinner or smaller, because they have fewer calories and carbohydrate.
