Week 38: Crispy Tortilla Packages (Airfryer)

The Recipe
4 tortillas
~400g meat of your choice cut into bite sized pieces (I used veal)
4 tbsp sour cream
4 tbsp salsa
~4 tbsp shredded cheese
1 red onion, sliced
A handful of nachos chips
Tortilla toppings of your choice (avocado, more salsa/sour cream, more cheese, jalapenos, more lettuce, tomatoes etc.)

Season the meat with salt, pepper and spices of your choice, spray with oil and place in the airfryer basket. Cook at 180C for ~10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway.

Prepare each tortillas like this: put shredded cheese sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese, meat, onion, lettuce and a couple of tortilla chips in the center of each. Fold the tortilla to a pentagon, by folding up one 'side' at a time, overlapping the previous side. Spray with oil and place in the basket (I let mine overlap a bit, that way there were room for all 4 at once). Cook for 6 minutes, turn them over and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Serve with additional toppings as desired.

The Verdict
Pretty straight forward tortillas meal. Nothing out of the ordinary, and could easily have been made using the stove instead, but one advantage of the air fryer that I hadn't thought of ahead of time is that it's possible to cook without standing over a hot stove! That's going to come in SO handy next summer. And it tasted really good! I might add a few more tortillas chips next time, but that's the only modification I have in mind.
