The Burrito

Burrito with carnitasI have been leading up to this for some time now. I have been writing about the rice, and the carnitas; no need to write about the black beans, or salsa (just yet) at this time. What happens below is something truly wonderful. In all honesty, after the carnita experience, the burrito experience kicked in two days in a row. Why? Because there is leftover rice, beans, carnitas, salsa, and large flour tortillas. If you have ever been to Qdoba or a place like Chipotle, or heck, even your local latino getup, then watch how the tortilla is folded. This is important. The wrap is crucial, keep it in mind, as you will not want all the beauty to fall out. I will not put the amounts to put in the tortilla, use your judgment, as you will have to wrap this, and better yet, eat it.
Ingredients:

  • Large Flour Tortillas
  • Shredded Carnitas
  • Shredded Cheese (to your liking)
  • Cooked Black Beans
  • Rice with Lime and Cilantro
  • Your favorite salsa
  • Sour Cream (optional)

Sides:

  • Chips (store bought, or homemade(better))
  • Guacamole

Burrito with carnitasNow if you are like me and have eaten at places mentioned above, it seems like you bite into a big thing of rice, then beans, then comes the meat. It appears orderly, and as it is good, it is not great. Here we go. I say mine is great, because I eat at both places mentioned above with my wife. I have noticed the difference between my burrito and the chains mentioned above. The feeling was substantial.

My wife also orders the carnitas off the menu. Keep that in mind. The look, the feel, the emotion, it was different during our burrito time at home. It was something delightful. We honestly attacked them like hungry dogs on a beef bone. No kidding. The carnitas. The burrito. It’s all good.

You will need to either do two things with your tortillas; wrap them in foil and warm them in the oven, or put them in the microphone until warm and soft; roughly 25 seconds. Now you need to work quickly, as you want to wrap within the warm tortilla as it is flexible. Add your rice, the beans, salsa,

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
