Dairy Belle “Kona” Potato Burrito
This was served at Dairy Belle, a fast food
restaurant chain in San Jose, CA in the
late 1960’s as a “Kona Taco”.
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1/4 cup yellow or white onions, diced
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
2 dashes chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 flour tortilla
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Add butter and cooking oil to a skillet.
Over medium heat, fry diced onions and peeled,
diced potatoes until tender and slightly browned.
Season with a couple of dashes of chili powder,
salt and pepper.
Fry flour tortilla on both sides until it
softens and is slightly browned.
Fill tortilla with warm fried potatoes and
sprinkle with grated cheese. Add a little ketchup
if desired. wrap and serve warm.
Other than using a flour tortilla and being called a taco or burrito,
this dish is in no way a Mexican recipe. It’s more like a fried potato wrap.
