The Secret Ingredient

Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add beef, garlic and 1 tablespoon bouillon; cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes or until beef is no longer pink.

Step 3

Add Spinach Soufflé and bell pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until all ingredients are combined and bell pepper is tender. Add olives and almonds. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Step 4

Place tomato sauce, tomatoes, onion, water, oregano and 1 teaspoon bouillon in a blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Step 5

Place sauce in a bowl large enough to dip tortillas.

Step 6

Add oil to large skillet about ¼ of the way full; heat over medium-low heat.

Step 7

Dip one tortilla in sauce, covering both sides and immediately fry for 15 to 30 seconds on both sides.

Step 8

Transfer fried tortilla to a large plate and spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture down the center. Roll and place seam-side-down in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas until all beef mixture is used. Pour any remaining sauce over rolled tortillas.

Step 9

Bake uncovered for 10 minutes or until heated through.

Step 10

Remove from oven; garnish with queso fresco and sliced almonds.
