  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into ½" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

  2. 2

    Cook the Ground Beef

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef to hot, dry pan. Break up meat until no pink remains on beef and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer ground beef to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Cook the Peppers

    Add poblano and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Add ground beef, seasoning blend, demi-glace, and 1 tsp. water. Stir until combined and warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Place 1 tsp. butter (not included in your box) in a small pot over medium heat. Let melt. Once butter has melted, add 2 tsp. flour (not included in your box). Stir often until a golden brown paste forms, 3-5 minutes. Add ½ cup milk (not included in your box) and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in cheese, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with ground beef and peppers, cheese sauce, green portions of green onions, and tortilla strips. Bon appétit!
