Burritos with Chili con Carne
Listening To: Altalena – Lino Cannavacciuolo
What has a donkey got to do with a meal? Nope. I haven’t gone crazy! Burrito means donkey and it’s one of the most well known Mexican foods! A soft tortilla is filled with different kinds of ingredients, such as rice, ground meat and veggies and it’s wrapped up like a cute little package that looks like the one that the donkeys carry around in Mexico. It’s extremely tasty and it satisfies even the pickiest eater – since you can put whatever your heart desires inside your little package!
Our burrito has Chili Con Carne, rice and of course, authentic Salsa!! Don’t let the fancy names scare you. It’s actually a lot simpler than it sounds. Chili con carne is ground meat in tomato sauce with added peppers, cumin and beans. To enjoy it as it should be enjoyed (and if you can handle the heat)give it an extra dose of hot flavor with loads of hot paprika or even better fresh – hot as hell – jalapeño peppers!
Make your own burritos with Mexican ( or not ) ingredients that you love. Add corn, guacamole, fill your burrito with sour cream or replace the chili con carne with chicken or the Shredded Beef we put in our tacos. With Mexican food, the choices are endless, the colors and flavors are explosive! Go ahead and experiment, don’t be shy! Don’t forget to put SOL, the real Mexican beer, in ice to chill, set a tale in the sun, pump up the music with “La Orginal Banda El Limon” and let your guests make their own burrito as they like it. A siesta right after the fun is a must…
We made them, they disappeared in seconds, and we made a video of the recipe to share with all of you!
