A year has passed and another is yet to come. As always, the family celebrates the New Year with biscuits and gravy alongside other breakfast dishes given that everyone would be staying until midnight. However, we took a twist on our biscuits & gravy as we welcome 2022— here’s the link if you would also like to try our traditional biscuits & gravy we made last year: https://www.jbroscooking.com//post/biscuits-and-gravy. For this year, we wrapped them up into a burrito and added some spice! We also did a homemade version of the biscuits so make sure to check them out. Again, Happy New Year to everyone!
chorizo gravy (ingredients below)
1-2 cups cooking oil for frying potatoes
1 yellow onion
2-3 mini sweet peppers
2 chili peppers
large or extra-large flour tortilla
homemade biscuits (https://www.jbroscooking.com//post/homemade-biscuits)
pepper jack cheese
Homemade Sausage Gravy
1 lb Italian Sausage, hot or mild
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
garlic powder (optional)
red pepper flakes (optional)
Cook chorizo until sizzling and brown. Mix in all-purpose flour until the sausage is fully covered.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour milk until desired thickness is achieved.
Simmer for about 5 minutes. Set aside
If gravy is too thick, just add more milk.
Heat cooking oil in a medium frying pan on medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, cube the potatoes to half an inch and mince the onion, sweet peppers, and chili pepper. (Make sure to remove chili seeds to not make it too hot)
Add potatoes to the pan then season with salt, pepper, and garlic to taste. Fry for about 5-10 minutes until the corners turn brown.
About 3 minutes before potatoes are done frying, add chili pepper, onion, and sweet peppers.
Remove the vegetables using a slotted spoon and dry on a plate lined with paper towels.
Heat tortilla for 30 seconds on each side then lay it down. Add a layer of pepper jack cheese.
Cut biscuits into cubes and place them in the tortilla. Add a spoonful of potato veggie mixture and top with chorizo gravy.
Wrap the burrito and fry for a minute to seal.
Serve while still hot. Enjoy!
