Win Burritos

I wasn’t planning to blog dinner tonight – it was the kind of meal that came together in 20 minutes, plus I wasn’t feeling well.  But I made a major food breakthrough – I FINALLY MADE BURRITOS THAT DIDN’T FALL APART!  I know I’m consistently guilty of overstuffing burritos and wraps, so tonight I made two burritos with the filling that I normally would’ve put in one.  (The soft taco-sized tortillas are only 76 calories each, so it wasn’t any worse than one big burrito.)  I also lightly cooked each side on a griddle, which helps to seal it so much and also wilts the green stuff nicely.

These burritos included everything in the fridge that I saw fit:  fajita style peppers, mushrooms and onions, brown rice, scallions, cilantro, spinach, salsa, jalapeno salsa and Teese.  I ate them with quicky guacamole and lettuce.

Check out my wrap and roll.

I’m really starting to think that other people might pay to eat my food someday, especially if I can keep learning these little tricks that make things just a bit more special.

    Isn’t it wonderful just toasting the tortillas a little bit. It gives them an extra dose of flavor, but more importantly, they stay together. I used to overstuff my burritos all the time!

  5. I would totally pay for one of those burritos! Even though it’s 8:00 in the morning, I would pay for one right now! 😉

    Re: the Annie’s Dressing – I was so excited to get those because I had not tried the Goddess dressing yet. I think the girl at the Annie’s booth thought I was nuts I was so excited!

  6. You are quite the burrito wrapper – they look snazzy, especially with the lovely golden marks from the griddle. I never make myself burritos, but this makes me want to!

    I am guilty of overstuffing as well. Those look lovely, and I need to cave in and order some Teese already.
