The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

The Burrito Thread

Post by Hovannes » Mon Jan 15, 2018 10:55 pm

I like making burritos at home because just about anything you cook for dinner, you can turn the left overs into burritos.
Beef, poultry, pork, B-B-Q, seafood all suffice. Slice it thin, grill it with onions and peppers, and slap it into a good tortilla with whatever accompaniments you desire:
Lettuce, rice, refried beans( heck any beans) avocado, salsa, cheese, jalapenos, tomatoes----all good!
It also stretches your leftovers so your entire family can tuck into dinner should you have a shortage of , say pork chops or steak or chicken breast.

Give us a report about your latest burrito constructs!

Great timing!

I made fajitas tonight from some pork scraps ("bones country ribs" at a Wisconsin butcher shop). Slice thin, grill with some peppers & onions, garlic and spices (chiefly chili powder). Roll in tortillas with cilantro and sour cream. Boosh!

All Tex-Mex food is a variation on the theme of burrito.

Surely you aren't implying that abondigas is a variation of a burrito, sir?

Sorry, no Chi-Chis here.
We are fortunate enough to have a few Vallartas though.
Abondigas is definitely a comfort food in colder weather.
Sort of like Mexican Pho.

One neat thing I like about burritos--- huge soft tacos--- is that they are so easy to concoct using leftovers.
It would be difficult to make a bad fajita burrito so your creativity can run unbridled.
Just for fun try it with left over Chinese take out, or fish and chips!

For an Enzo worthy burrito, try using the Langostino from Trader Joes

I don't know, man. Joking about TexMex is a pretty serious foul. This might take me a few minutes to cool down.

Payton's chorizo, eggs, and some asadero cheese. Wrap it up in a nice tortilla and call it done.

I need to turn in my Hispanic card, I misspelled asadero in my initial post (captured here, I corrected my posting).

That and a couple of homemade tortillas could easily be my choice for a last meal.
