                         - chopped
    2       c            Water
    2       lb           Diced lean pork OR

      1/4   ts           Black pepper
 
   SMOTHERED BURRITOS: Heat flour tortilla on grill about 10 seconds; turn and
   heat another 10 seconds until hot.  Add about 3/4 cup refied beans; roll.
   Place on serving plate.  Top with Chili Verde and generous amounts of
   cheeses,
   using as desired.  Buzz in microwave about 3 minutes, until cheese is
   melted.
   FLOUR TORTILLAS: Mix flour, baking soda, salt and shortening with hands
   until
   thoroughly combined.  Add enough warm water to make a manageable dough
   (easy
   to roll).
   Pinch off pieces of dough about the size of a biscuit.  Roll into a circle
   about 1/8-inch thick.  Put on heated 300-degree grill for about 6 seconds;
   turn and cook another 8 seconds.  Repeat with remaining dough.  Makes 24
   flour tortillas.  Tortillas may be frozen.  Stack between sheets of waxed
   paper.
   “When my children were growing up, I always made the Flour Tortillas in
   the evening for the next day.  Sometimes I made dessert flour tortillas by
   decreasing the salt to 1/2 teaspoon and adding 1/2 teaspoon sugar to the
   dough.  I would heat them on the grill, then immediately top with cinnamon
   and sugar or honey.”
   CHILI VERDE: Roast Anaheim peppers in 350-degree oven about 15 minutes;
   turn
   and roast an additional 15 minutes.  Remove from oven; cool.  (The peppers
   may
   be frozen at this point.)
   To peel roasted Anaheims, steam a few minutes; cool as needed, then peel
   and dice.  Add 2 cups water; set aside.
   In a large skillet, cook pork (or beef) in melted shortening until browned
   and completely cooked.  Add flour, garlic salt and pepper, blending well.
   Add Anaheim pepper mixture; bring to a boil.  Reduce temperature and
   simmer 10 minutes.
   Preparation time: 20 minutes            Cooking Time: about 15 minutes
