Flips

as posted by DeBora18 in the November 2004 What's for Dinner? thread.

Flips

Flour tortillas
I can refried beans
1 pound ground beef, with taco seasoning mix and browned
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes
diced onions
Finely grated cheddar cheese

Sprinkle a skillet with a little olive oil or Pam.
Place a large flour tortilla on the bottom. In
layers, spread the rest of the ingredients
over half of the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in
half and press down with a spatula. Cover
with a lid and brown on both sides till the
cheese melts.

You could also add sour cream, avodacos,
sour cream or taco sauce with it.

These may be frozen before cooking if you leave out the lettuce & tomato. Just freeze between layers of wax paper, and defrost before cooking as usual.

We like to add salsa into the Flips, for extra flavor.

You get about 20 Flips from this recipe.

This sounds really good. So I gather that you prepare your taco meat first, then layer that with beans and other ingredients, fold over and fry? And how long do you fry them for? Do the other ingredient get soggy?

I just fry them until they get "melty." (That's a technical term ) Not all my kids will eat them with lettuce, but they all eat salad, so we just have our salad on the side.

Flips

Barbzy...this recipe sounds delicious! My daughter is somewhat a finiky eater sometimes, but I KNOW she would love this recipe. A big thank-you to you, and Debora18 for bringing us this yummy sounding recipe.

I wasn't subscribed to this thread so I didn't catch all the questions. lol Barb worded it perfectly, fry them over low heat until "melty."

Amanda, the other ingredients don't get soggy unless you add the tomatoes.

I have picky eaters in my house too! My DH and DD won't eat onions. My DD won't eat refried beans. She LOVES flips--so she says--but what are flips without refried beans? lol For me, I add the works! I am going to try them with jalapenos.

One suggestion that works for me is to make a large batch of the taco meat mixture. Put it in zip-loc baggies and freeze. Then, when you need a quick meal, you pull a meal's worth of meat out and make flips, tacos, or taco salad. Cook once and have mutliple meals.

sounds good. I wonder if you could fix these with a sandwich maker?

I don't have a sandwich maker and I have never had one, but it would be interesting to find out how they would turn out. I bet anything that would brown them on each side like a griddle would work.

Thanks for sharing.. I'd never heard of Flips this sounds really good and alot cheaper than buying "fake" mexican food from Taco Bell.
