    I drained the sauce first. Well-anticipated though!

    You're nearly there.  Use refried pinto beans next time.

    Preparing a shopping list now; the girls like the smell. They weren't that keen on the little song of triumph on the way to the dishwasher though.
  • As painful as it is to say, an Amy's vegetarian burrito, boiled and barbecued, with peanut butter and marmite spread on it is closer to an actual burrito than what could be assembled with the mess you have described.

    Awesome, thanks for the suggestion. Umami FTW!
  • After all this (the thing above is quite tasty by the way) I've a question, one that anyone reading would likely dismiss as frivolous. Nope. Here goes:

    Is there a person, an organisation, anywhere, that purports to be a world authority on the burrito? I have the urge to register something quite odd.

    ...notably absent from the preceding threads. Wise.

    Laugh?  I weep.
    What you're doing is a criminal abomination.


    what exactly are you trying to do?
    I saw the last couple of threads of your adventures into "burritos"  and, you're lost.

    Do you want some help? My people, we know this work.

    I've got edumucated (aka schooled) and, the best bit, got a restaurant recommendation from a colleague who saw my blog post; a place just south of Manchester City centre that sells burritos, and he's visited a few times. A win, I think. :)

    No, there is no organization
    ".I have the urge to register something quite odd."Oh, I bet you do. :)

    A burrito is just Northern Mexican/ USA SW  lunch food. It is a Cornish Pasty.  It's lunch food that you can make before, travels well, it's nutritious and filling.
    Mexicans at home don't really eat burritos. They will have the same ingredients (prepared differently) on a plate with tortillas on the side.

    Interesting re. the Cornish pasty. Double-ended burrito; savoury end + sweet end?? But no, it'll have been done already, right?

    That's...almost pretty reasonable, actually.  I disagree with the choice of beans, and I think the celery, while interesting texture addition, doesn't add much in a venue like that, and ketchup is still everything wrong in condiments, but the overall condiment combination is a sort of nod to salsa and sourcream..kind of.  In a way.  I could see it.  I think rice and pinto beans would have been an improvement.  But it's within the realm of actual burrito.

    /eating rice, pork, cheese right at the moment.

    Manchester? The world hub of all things Norteño
    I make a great Haggis. a chef in Jakarta told me so. ;)  He liked my use of fish sauce  and lime. The squid was a real treat but it was the pineapple bits that really made it kick.
    Is it a Haggis? I boiled it in a stomach (no artificial casing for me.)

    .In the end, food is very subjective and culturally biased.  If you like it, then it is good (to you).
    Is what you're making a "burrito"?  I guess that depends on the definition. Strictly speaking, you wrapped it in a flour tortilla, so yes. Maybe?
    The ingredients and methodology  are all wrong but hey, you wrapped it in a flour tortilla.

    If what you are trying to do is make a vegetarian burrito then there are traditional ways of doing that.  Remember that this is peasant food and meat is often scarce.

    From what I can tell, what you are  making  is an lazy, exploratory venture into TexMex and are unwilling to step out of your culture in an attempt at "fusion".

    I don't know. You got my attention but I'm shaking my head in wonderment.
  • Ok, sounds like you like these ingredients so I'm not gonna be critical. I'm just really looking forward to you trying a few options from a resturaunt so you know what we are all thinking about when we talk about the Mexican food we like so much.
  • I am so inspired by these burritos, i am seriously considering making a pizza using a chocolate pop-tart (crust), hummus (sauce) dill pickle (vegetable topping) and hot dogs (meat topping).
  • Subby, perhaps you should start out with a beginner's burrito.  A Breakfast Burrito.

    These are delicious, and extremely simple to make....as well as being flexible in content.

    A good basic one would contain:
    ham or bacon (just crispy streaky bacon will work well in this)
    scrambled egg
    A lighter white cheese that melts well (NOT BRIE)
    chopped fresh tomatoes and onion (cilantro if you can get some)
    And a dash of your favorite hot sauce, in a mexican style if available to you.  Caribbean hot sauces will work OK here.

    Lightly brown the tortilla on a dry, flat pan...similar to what South Asian households use for toasting naans and what not.  Just warm enough to get it flexible and get a few toasting marks.

    Then layer in the filling with the eggs and bacon still hot to melt the cheese just a little bit.  Wrap as seen in your earlier youtube video and stuff your face.

    A great addition to these: panfried potatoes.

    I...sprouts of what, and why are they in the freezer?  Although sure, why not?
  • I made a "burrito" that I shouldn't have a few weeks ago:

    Mozzarella cheese
    Roasted habanero tomato-based salsa
    Feta-stuff kalamata olives
    Chopped spinich
    Choice of meats or black beans

    The feta stuffed kalamatas were the star.
  • I hope the next burrito attempt won't include an actual baby donkey.
