There are two ways to make Burnesto’s Burritos. Here is what you’ll need for your do-it-yourself burrito kits. The ingredients are chosen for their combination of affordability and good flavor.

Burrito Kit 1:

  1. Mission large flour tortillas (or your preferred substitute)
  2. Lucerne Mexican 4-Cheese blend
  3. C&W Ultimate Southwest Mix frozen vegetables
  4. Ground beef (for dinner burrito, or substitute scrambled eggs for breakfast burritos)
  5. Safeway Southwest Salsa (substitute Newman’s Own Black Bean & Corn Salsa)
  6. Safeway Peach-Pineapple Salsa (substitute Newman’s Own Peach or Pineapple Salsa)

 

Burrito Kit 2: (Tex-Mex style)

  1. Mission large flour tortillas (or your preferred substitute)
  2. Lucerne Mexican 4-Cheese blend
  3. Lettuce, tomato, purple onion
  4. Large can of whole black beans
  5. Safeway Southwest Salsa (substitute Newman’s Own Black Bean & Corn Salsa)
  6. Safeway Peach-Pineapple Salsa (substitute Newman’s Own Peach or Pineapple Salsa)

 

Preparation: DIY Burrito Kit 1

If you don’t have a means of steaming the tortillas, take two microwave-safe plates, put one on each, wet your hand and swipe across each burrito to moisten. Put aside.

Brown approximately 1/4 lb. of ground beef, seasoned with garlic salt. While you’re browning the ground beef, heat approximate one-half a bag of C&W Southwest Vegetable Mix in a pot or microwave. Once the vegetable mix is thawed, add southwest salsa and continue to heat. Once hot, add some 4-blend cheese until mixture is thick. (Don’t put the cheese away). Place the vegetable/cheese mix in a bowl. Drain the ground beef on paper towels until dry, and add to vegetables and cheese. You’ll notice that the mixture dries up a bit. This is good. You’re almost there.

Have a surface ready where you can roll the burritos with bowl of vegetable mix, cheese, and pineapple-peach salsa within easy access. A large spoon will come in handy.

Place one burrito into the microwave for 30 seconds, with the second one ready to follow. Once heated, the burrito will be moist and ready to roll. Leave it on the plate.

Put two or three tablespoons of pineapple-peach salsa in a line across the center of bottom third of the burrito. Place approximately half of the vegetable-mix-cheese mix on top, and some cheese on top of that. Roll burrito and Bob’s your uncle. Makes two Big Bad Bulbous Bouncy Burritos a la Burnesto.

Preparation: DIY Burrito Kit 2:

Follow the same instructions for tortillas as Burnesto’s Burrito Kit 1, but for this one, you’ll need a large can of whole black beans. You’ll be using approximately half the can.

Chop lettuce, tomatoes, and onions into smallish squares.

Drain the black beans and heat approximately half the can in a pot. Add Southwest Salsa and Four Blend Mexican Cheese when beans are hot. Stir until you have a coagulated mass of beans and cheese (It tastes better than that sounds). Since the black beans are high in protein, they make an excellent vegetarian dinner, but you can add ground beef should you desire.

When the black bean-salsa-cheese mix is heated, place in a bowl. Also, place lettuce, tomato, and onions into small separate bowls, with salsa at the ready.

Heat the tortilla in the microwave for 30 seconds, spoon a line peach-pineapple salsa across the bottom third of the tortilla, put half the bean-cheese mix on top, and lettuce, tomato, and onion on top of the beans (amounts to taste). Add another layer of southwest salsa for flavor, and top off with some four blend cheese. Fold burrito, and once again, Bob’s your uncle.

When you get the rhythm of this down, you can be heating the second tortilla while you’re making the first burrito.
