Extra filling makes meals fit for a fiesta. Stuff it into flour tortillas with hot rice for burritos or into crunchy corn tortillas with plenty of fixings for taco night.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a very large skillet cook ground chicken, ground pork, and onions until meat is brown and onions are tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.

  • In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker combine meat mixture, salsa, sweet peppers, corn, chipotle pepper, chili powder, coriander, and garlic salt.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.

  • Meanwhile, add tortillas, one at a time, to hot oil; cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or just until golden. Using tongs, remove tortillas from hot oil. Fold fried tortillas over a paper-towel-wrapped rolling pin or a wire tortilla rack placed over a paper-towel-lined pan. Let cool until firm.

  • To serve, use a slotted spoon to spoon meat mixture into fried tortilla shells. If desired, add toppers.

*

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
