Deliciocity of the Day 1-13-12

There was a sit down restaurant that had an appetizer that was cooked cabbage (and other stuff) in a tortilla roll.
No I'm not avoiding using the restaurant name, I just don't remember which one it was.

Here's how to do a delicious and cheap knock-off at home.

Head of cabbage
Can whole kernel corn
Can black beans
Tortilla shells
Grilled chicken
Worcestershire sauce

Grill the chicken in a pan on the stove. It doesn't have to be much chicken and can be skipped and still taste fine. Chop into bite sized pieces and set aside.

Start by chopping the head of lettuce into cubes, or something like it. Alternatively, you can make things easier by using a bag of coleslaw mix (that also may add carrot shreds to your dish, score for more healthy stuff).
Put cabbage into large frying pan on medium heat, add garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Amount is based on your taste. Likewise you can add a dash of salt or season-all salt to heighten the flavor. If you like onions you can chop some finely and add it or use onion powder or dried onions. Onions are not necessary but add a little extra flavor and more healthy stuff.

Cover the cabbage and let cook till wilted, stirring occasionally. 
When the cabbage is nearly done (should be soft, not crisp anymore) open and drain the corn and beans and add to the cabbage. Add cooked chicken to mixture and stir well while allowing the new ingredients to heat up.

Warm your tortilla shells, either for a moment in a warm oven or a few seconds in the microwave. Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on the shell and scoop the cabbage mixture on top. Sprinkle a little more cheese then fold closed. Sliced cheese is also great for this for a more creamy flavor.

Probably under $5.00 when you figure it all up and makes easily five to six or even more (depending on size of cabbage head) large tortilla rolls. 

Not too much work, especially if you skip the cabbage head and use coleslaw mix, tastes great and has all sorts of healthy, good for you stuff (but no one has to tell the kids that!).
