Melty cheese. Creamy sauce. One pan, and limited clean up. Yeah, that’s a recipe for quick mealtime success! Tonight, we’ve got beef and green bell pepper-stuffed tortilla melts filled with two creamy fillings: cheddar cheese and a spicy cream sauce. Our special cream sauce is not just good for oozing on the inside, but also for dipping on the outside of your melts. The best part? This melted goodness all comes together in one pan in just 25 minutes.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Green Bell Pepper
Beef Stock Concentrate
• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, core, and thinly slice bell pepper into strips. • In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese, 1 tsp water (2 tsp for 4 servings), and hot sauce to taste. (Start with half the hot sauce, then taste and add more from there if you like things spicy.) Microwave until softened, 30 seconds. Stir to combine.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes.
• Add beef* to pan with bell pepper. Season with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up meat into pieces, until bell pepper is tender and beef is browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes. TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out. • Add stock concentrate and stir until combined. Turn off heat.
• Place tortillas on a clean work surface. • Spread one half of each tortilla with half the cream sauce (save the rest for serving). Using a slotted spoon, top sauce with beef filling, then sprinkle with cheddar. Fold tortillas in half to create tortilla melts.
• Wipe out pan used for beef. Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in same pan over medium heat. • Add tortilla melts and cook until tortillas are golden brown and cheese melts, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board. TIP: Work in batches and add more butter as needed.
• Cut tortilla melts into wedges. • Divide between plates and serve with remaining cream sauce on top or on the side for dipping.
