Cheesy Beef Lumpia

Side note: This post was exported from my previous blog.  I plan to move some recipes on here to share with you guys. There might be a few more in the next couple of days so please check back.  Enjoy!

Cheesy Beef Lumpia

To make this you'll need:

500 grams minced beef
1 packet of  taco mix
1/4 cup water 
3 tbsp onions chopped
1 tbsp garlic chopped 
3 tbsp spring onions chopped
3 tbsp cilantro chopped 
lumpia wrapper (I used rice wrappers from the Vietnamese spring rolls I made weeks ago)
sour cream
salsa (store bought or homemade)
1/4 cup of mozzarella
strips of cheddar (cut from cheddar slices)

1. Sauté garlic, onion and beef.  Cook until the meat is browned.

2. Add taco mix that is dissolved in 1/4 cup water into the pan. Let it simmer until the liquid is completely absorbed .  Let cool. (at this point you can serve the meat as a filling for tacos which is what I originally made this for.)

3. In a bowl, mix spring onions, cilantro, beef, mozzarella.

4. Place a strip of cheddar on the wrapper, put the meat mixture on top, roll and seal the sides.

5. Serve with salsa and sour cream. 

I paired it with Watermelon Cooler.  It's basically 2 cups of fresh watermelon, 2 mint leaves, crushed ice nicely blended into a glass of deliciousness.
