4 jalapeno cheddar smoked Ontario sausages
4 10-inch (25 cm) flour tortillas
1 cup (250 mL) shredded lettuce
1 cup (250 mL) plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup (125 mL) sliced avocado
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbsp (30 mL) sour cream
1/2 cup (125 mL) prepared salsa

Grill sausages according to the package instructions.

In a large dry skillet, over medium heat, warm the tortillas one by one, turning once, until pale golden on both sides, about 30 seconds per side.

Arrange each warmed tortilla over 4 plates. Top each with a grilled sausage. Sprinkle with lettuce, plum tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and sour cream. Fold in sides and roll up to enclose filling. Serve with salsa.

Beer Pairing Suggestions: An Ontario India Pale Ale such as Maclean’s Pale Ale, Heritage Brewery’s Sgt. Major IPA; or Granite’s Ringwood Ale to compliment the spicy recipe.

Makes 4 servings

Innovative: Substitute prepared guacamole for the avocado if yours isn’t ripe and omit the sour cream.

Tip: Warming the tortillas in a pan before rolling will bring back a “fresh baked” flavour and texture.
