    Beef with Green Chile
    1. Cut beef into chunks or strips.
    2. Add all ingredients except cornstarch to skillet.
    3. Simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes. You may need to add a little water so mixture simmers well. (Don’t add too much water or mixture will get soupy.)

    5. Cook until cornstarch thickens (about 5 more minutes).

    Note: This dish can be served as an entrée or as a burrito filling. When you buy flour tortillas for burritos, choose those that are thinner or smaller, because they have fewer calories and carbohydrate.
