Prepper Recipe #1 TVP Sorta Enchilada/Burritos

I am going to start working on my recipes and how to cook with prep stuff.  Just to show that you can have a pretty sheen diet on stuff from the basement.

In the morning
Throw all this stuff together in the morning in the pan that you boil the water and when it cools enough, stuff it in the fridge for later.  Take it off the heat, you don't want to cook the stuff with the water, you just have to get it back to reconstituted.

In the late afternoon reconstitute some dried hash browns (get these in the big milk carton kinda box at costco).   Just put them in a bowl, and cover them with cold water.   Or just grate up a couple of spuds...same same.

Go to your local Mexican food store.  Go to the aisle where they have the canned sauces and buy one for your taste range.  These are cheap and tasty as hell.  Buy two of the the big cans.  Might as well get your tortillas here while you are at it.

Mix up the TVP mix, the potatoes, and around 1/2 to 2/3 of one of the cans of sauce.  put a big glop on the tortilla and roll it up and put it in a big cooking dish.  When you have filled the dish up, dump the remainer of the sauce evenly over the  filled up pan  (you can put cheese over it if you wish, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't)

Stick it in a 325 oven for about an hour and fifteen minute.  (More or less depending on your oven and conditions)
