How to Roll a Burrito

Here is a great tip for all of you Tex-Mex lovers out there who just haven’t figured out how to roll or “fold” your burrito. I don’t want to here any remarks like “so that’s what the kids are calling it these days.” Just keep those types of comments to your self and I will too.

To start off with a burrito is usually filled with at least some type of cooked and seasoned meat. Then you can add beans, and/or shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes, and/or shredded cheese and/or any combination of stuff that you like.

I particularly like the shredded beef and bean burrito at the Beltline Bar in Grand Rapids, MI. Back in my semi-vegetarian days I used to eat burritos with beans and Spanish rice. You are pretty much free to put into the burrito anything you like.

Just don’t over fill the burrito. This is where most people have the biggest problems with rolling their burrito. There is a finite amount of space inside you flour tortilla, this is just a fact. Just as Scotty, from Star Trek, “cannot change the laws of physics” you cannot change the laws of space and volume. There is only so much space or volume inside that tortilla, once you can wrap your brain around that fact you will have a successful burrito rolling experience.

So let’s get started. Of course you have already made your meat, beans, shredded the lettuce and cheese, diced the tomatoes and prepared your sauce of choice, right.

I’m using the Green Chili and Pork from the July 27 post. I made some refried beans to go with it too.

Lay the 10 or 12 inch flour tortilla out on your serving plate, place a heaping tablespoon’s worth of beans right in the middle.

Place about 2 heaping tablespoons of your meat on next.

Sprinkle on some additional stuff I used some shredded lettuce and diced tomato.

Fold the tortilla in half.

Fold over the ends.

While holding the ends of the burrito roll or flip the burrito over and Viola!

Now top with your favorite sauce, some shredded cheese. You can finish it by melting the cheese in an oven or microwave.

Serve with a side of refried beans and Spanish rice and you have a meal fit for a Rey. (Spanish for King).
