    • 10 each Mission® Large/Burrito Super Soft Flour Tortilla

    • 3 pounds Beef short ribs

    • 2 each Carrots, cut into quarters

    • 3 each Celery ribs, ends discarded, cut into quarters

    • ½ each Onion, cut into large pieces

    • 3 each Garlic cloves

    • 4 cups Beef stock

    • 1 cup Red wine

    • 3 each Thyme sprig, fresh

    • 1 each Bay leaf

    • 10 each Bacon strips

    • 2½ cups Potato, small dice

    • 2 tbsp. Olive oil

    • 2½ cups Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled to pea size

    • 2½ cups Greek non-fat yogurt

    • ¾ cup plus 3 tbsp. Scallions, thinly sliced

    • 4 tbsp. Balsamic glaze, ready-to-use

  • Instructions

    • Layer carrots, celery, onion, and garlic at the bottom of the crock pot and lay the short ribs over top. Add liquids and herbs. Turn the crock-pot to low and cook for 8 hours, turning beef after 4 hours if possible. After 8 hours, remove the beef from the braising liquid, discard the bones and fat, and shred the meat.

    • Cook bacon and allow to drain onto paper towels before roughly chopping.

    • Cook the potato in olive oil at medium-high heat until crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. About 6-8 minutes. Allow to drain on paper towels.

    • Combine gorgonzola and Greek yogurt in a mixing bowl and stir together until well incorporated.

    • To serve, spread ½ cup of the yogurt mixture over the entire tortilla. On one half of the tortilla, add ¼ cup of the shredded short ribs, 1 slice of bacon rough chopped, ¼ cup potatoes, and 1½ tbsp. scallions. Fold the tortilla in half and crisp in a pan over medium heat, turning after a few minutes. Once crisp on both sides, slice into quarters and drizzle with about 1 tsp. of balsamic glaze.
