Hatch Green Chile Smothered Burritos

for the filling:
2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 lbs. small red potatoes, diced
2 tsp. salt, or to taste
3 tsp. NM Hatch Red Chile Powder
1 tsp. cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups water
for the sauce:
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups milk, room temp
1 tsp. salt
1 cup Santa Fe Seasons Flame Roasted Hatch Green Chile
1/2 tsp Los Chileros Mexican Oregano
for the burritos:
6-8 burrito sized flour tortillas
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
sour cream for garnish

for the filling:
Place the ground beef in a large sauté pan over medium high heat
Use a wooden spoon to crumble the meat. Add onions and potatoes and stir to incorporate
Add salt, red chile powder and cumin and cook, stirring often until cooked through, 7-8 minutes
Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more, until fragrant
Pour water over mixture, bring to a simmer, cover and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
Remove lid and simmer about 10 minutes more until liquid is completely reduced and potatoes are tender
for the sauce:
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat
Whisk in flour and cook until toasty, about 3 minutes
Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Gradually whisk in chicken stock, stirring well to avoid any lumps
Stir in the milk, salt, green chile and oregano and cook over medium heat until thickened and bubbly about 15 minutes, stirring often
to assemble:
Preheat oven to 350. Lay a tortilla flat and spoon 1/2-3/4 cup of filling onto the center
Fold the left and right sides of the tortillas by 1 inch to seal the ends and prevent the filling from falling out before rolling up burrito style from top to bottom
Place seam side down on an oven proof dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray
Smother with green chile sauce and sprinkle with a generous amount of cheese
Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place in oven until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly, 10-15 minutes
Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with sour cream
