Kyle is looking entirely too happy in this photo. He was messing around in the other photos, so I went with this one. I also want to say ahead of time I apologize for the quality of these pictures. We have horrible lighting in the kitchen and the USB cord to my better camera is currently broken. I did want to share Kyle's latest, greatest recipe even if that means not so good picture.
Kyle came up with his own personal recipe. To make the process easier, he chose Chi Chis meat in the tub that was on sale. It was must faster than frying up and seasoning his own and cheaper too.
The ingredients he used
- Chi Chis prepared taco meat
- taco sauce
- burrito size tortilla
- shredded cheese
- a can of red beans
- brown rice (for the side)
- sour cream (optional)
- jalapeno peppers (optional)
He warmed up the red beans using the directions on the back of the can. While these were on the stove, he warmed up the Chi Chis meat in the microwave.
Adding the ingredients to the burrito
He added the taco meat, a spoonful of red beans, and then some of the shredded cheese
Here he is rolling the burrito, and placing them in a Pyrex dish. A fun tip.. heat the tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds before rolling. Warming them slightly keeps them from tearing.
Funny story about the rice. While Kyle was putting the burritos together, Kara came in and asked to help. He told her that she could help with the rice. She did not realize it was boil in a bag rice, so she started pouring it in the pot. Halfway into pouring the rice, she was told that she was supposed to place the bag in the water. Since there was still some rice in the bag, she threw it in. Boil in a bag rice, became boil WITH a bag rice.
I thought he might add some salsa to the burritos, but he insisted on adding taco sauce. He just poured a few passes across the burritos. It actually tastes really good this way.
He also added a fair amount of cheese on top of of the burritos, before placing them in the oven. I helped him set the timer. He cooked them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. We did not need to cook it very long, because we used prepared, and warmed up taco meat.
They looked really good when they came out of the oven.
He served the brown rice on the side. The burritos were excellent, the rice not so much. It seems boiling with a bag, made them too soggy.
He was goofing off during the finished pic too. He is busy thinking up his recipe for next week. Hope you stop back and check it out.
This recipe will be linked up at these awesome linky parties. Be sure to check them out.
