How to Make Mexican Roasted Potatoes
It’s a good idea to get the potatoes started in the oven before beginning with the wraps since the potatoes take longer to cook.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 220°C or 428°F and line a baking sheet with baking paper or brush some oil on it. Cut the potatoes into wedges or cube or any shape you’d like as long as it’s even-sized pieces.
Step 2: Mix all the spices in a large bowl until well combined. Toss in the potato pieces until they are well coated. Spread over a baking sheet and roast in center of oven for 30-40 minutes. Gently stir now and then to prevent burning.
How to Make Portobello Steak Wraps
While the potatoes are roasting you can prepare the mushroom wrap filling.
Step 1: Heat the oil in a large skillet then add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent. Then add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they have softened and are a little crispy.
Step 2: Mix in the garlic, jalapeño, and chopped tomato, sprinkle salt and pepper over the ingredients. Cook until the tomato breaks down and is nearly absorbed. Make sure to stir now and then.
How to Serve
Warm up the wraps then add the mushroom steak filling and roll up. Slice in half if desired.
