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.

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