I love a good burrito, and because I’m the only cook at my house, we have them frequently. Now that I’ve learned how to make a quick and yummy burrito, I don’t eat them out at restaurants anymore because they seem too bland and tasteless to me.
Sometimes I use beef or sometimes chicken, but whichever I choose, mid-morning I put the meat in the crockpot on high and cook it till dinner time, and it’s always falling apart and perfect. I usually don’t even season the meat first, I just dump a 3lb. package of fresh ground meat or frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot , and I don’t have to touch it, or think about it till I’m ready to make dinner.
Not too pretty after it comes out of the crockpot, but I shred it and season it with taco seasoning (sometimes just salt) and here is what it looks like after.
After I season it, I usually microwave it with a little water in the bottom and a cover on top, to help rewarm it and spread the seasoning.
These are a few of my favorite things to make an awesome burrito. I usually have coupons for these taco kits, and so I stock up when they are on sale which makes for inexpensive tortillas, seasoning and taco sauce. I LOVE the Minute Maid Spanish rice, it tastes nothing like the spanish rice I have ever had which sometimes tastes like rice with tomato sauce added. This rice is so rich in flavor and goes great on a burrito.
I also really like Old El Paso’s Mexican rice. (No payment for endorsements here)
I like to sprinkle black beans or sometimes chili or kidney beans on our burritos, along with lettuce and tomato. Then my favorite part is either sour cream or a yummy mixture of ranch dressing and some of the taco sauce from my packet. The two combined make a DELICIOUS sauce.
Voila! A fantastically tasty burrito!
