How to Make It

  1. Discard husks and stems from tomatillos. Place tomatillos, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and garlic in a blender. Process until finely chopped, and set aside.

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork with cumin. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes or until no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally. Remove from pan; keep warm.

  3. Recoat pan with cooking spray; add chiles and onion. Coat vegetables with cooking spray; cook 4 minutes or until onion begins to brown, stirring frequently.

  4. While vegetables cook, warm tortillas.

  5. Return pork to pan; add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook 30 seconds or until pork mixture is thoroughly heated, stirring constantly.

  6. Divide pork mixture evenly among tortillas. Top each with about 1/3 cup salsa; roll up. Serve with sour cream.

Cook's Notes

Since gluten-free tortillas are stored in the refrigerator, they'll need to be warmed to prevent breaking. Steam them by placing each tortilla on a splatter guard set over a pan of simmering water. Cover with a lid, and heat about 5 to 10 seconds or until they're soft and pliable. They're best when filled and eaten immediately after steaming.
