Beef Burritos & Monterey Jack Sauce
1/2 pound boneless chuck, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups finely chopped broccoli
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, minced
1/2 cup tomato pur?e
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
3 ounces Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
4-ounce can chopped green chiles
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
four 8-inch flour tortillas
In a large heavy skillet cook the chuck in oil over moderately high heat, stirring until it is just browned. Add broccoli, garlic, onion, tomato pur?e, chili powder, cumin, salt to taste, and 1/2 cup water.
Cook mixture, covered, over moderate heat 15 to 17 minutes or until filling is thickened. Keep the filling warm, covered, over low heat.
In a small saucepan, combine Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, chiles, and lemon juice. Heat over moderately low heat until cheese is melted and keep warm, covered. Do not let sauce boil.
