Tonight I am going to make burritos, but I am not going to use my regular recipe, I want to try something new. My usual recipe is this:
1/2 lb. ground beef
1 can refried beans
1 can petite diced tomatoes with green chiles (undrained)
1 packet burrito seasonings
Brown the ground beef, drain off fat. Mix in the beans, tomatoes and seasonings, stir well to combine. Heat through, about 5 minutes over medium heat.
That is the main filling for the burritos. Then we would top that with shredded lettuce, shredded mexican blend cheese, and sour cream. Yum!
But tonight I am going to use the following as the fillings:
pico de gallo
shredded mexican blend cheese
It's vegetarian, but not for any special reason. I had a burrito made with these ingredients from Chipotle Mexican Grill and it was SOOO good, I decided to replicate it. Now if only I could figure out how to properly roll the burritos without ripping the tortilla. They put the tortilla in some sort of heating/steaming machine at Chipotle before they put your filling in, maybe the steam makes it more pliable. Maybe I should try pressing them with my iron on the high steam setting? Just kidding! If any of you out there know the trick, please share.
Sorry there was no post yesterday, I did not even go on the computer. And I did not cook anything. I bought Cream Cheese Iced Cinnamon Rolls from the grocery store bakery on Friday, so we had those for breakfast. We went to Red Robin for lunch - VERY yummy! They have a delicious Bruschetta Chicken Burger which is served with Garlic Parmesan Fries. They also have a drink called Freckled Lemonade which is lemonade with strawberries in it and you get free refills. It is heaven! Then for dinner we got subs from Jimmy John's and although I keep saying I am going to try their veggie sub, I always get the Turkey Tom with turkey breast (duh), mayo, tomato, lettuce and alfalfa sprouts, plus a jumbo dill pickle. I probably gained 10 lbs., but it was worth it!
