My love for burritos is out of this world.
Maybe I am sentimental about breakfast burritos because till date it is the only Tex-Mex cuisine I have been able to cook for myself at home. Like most Tex-Mex cuisines you will find a lot of variations to how burritos are made. Surprisingly, there are popular Tex-Mex restaurants that have these variations on their menu. This is how I make my burritos.
- 1 lb of ground beef
- 15 ounces of chili with beans
- ¼ cup of chopped onion
- 1¼ cup of salsa
- ¼ cup of chopped green chilies
- 8 slices of American cheese
- 8 warmed flour tortillas
- Shredded lettuce and taco sauce
Cook onion and beef in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is brown. Add salsa, chili, and green chilies and stir. Allow to boil then lower the heat and simmer for further 5 minutes. Place about ½ cupful of the beef mixture on the center of the tortilla and roll up. Top with a slice of cheese. Serve with shredded lettuce and sauce.
Breakfast Burritos Anonymous
I recently learned about the Breakfast Burritos Anonymous (BBA) serving burritos in food trucks in Houston. I was impressed because Houston is one of the cities with the strictest laws when it comes to food trucks. This is because authorities consider food trucks with propane bomb threats. The food trucks are not allowed to park in certain areas of the city, particularly in downtown, unless a fire marshal is on board at all times.
The burritos are rolled up perfectly. I learned BBA gives you the opportunity to customize your burritos. For example, you can order burritos with potatoes, pork sausage, green chiles, eggs, tomatoes, cheddar, avocado, spinach, and Mama’s salsa. That sounds pretty much like a mouthful to me.
