Burrito Experiment #5 – dinner


It’s been a while since we’ve had burritos… seemed like a good way to start a Very long week.


Should have taken the picture Before I started cooking but I was pretty excited to get the meal going.


Browned the chorizo – froze about 1/2 for future recipes. While browning the chorizo, I cooked some plain long-grain white rice.


Red pepper & onion browned in 1 Tbsp of olive oil


Pinto beans were thoroughly rinsed and added to the skillet with the remaining chorizo and cooked rice. I did not add any additional oil, there was very little oil left from the browned chorizo. I lightly toasted the rice with the beans and sausage.


Final ingredients: fresh cheese and ranchera salsa, a dark, smokey salsa


On our favorite tortilla the rice & bean mixture


peppers and onions


some ranchera sauce and some fresh cheese (yes…. I missed that picture)


quick grilled so that they are a bit crispy on the outside and easy to pick up.

The ranchera sauce had a good flavor and heat. The fresh cheese did not melt as much as I would have liked – I might try a more traditional queso cheese next time.
My Heart suggested a touch of sour cream.
