couple of years ago when the Wrap craze was under
way, I felt left out again as little boutique style restaurants
sprung up everywhere offering the chic new fast food meal, super
burritos. Delicious combinations of rice, beans, vegetables, meats,
seafood and terrific sauces all wrapped up in white, red or green
flour tortillas. A , hold in your hand, satisfying meal that I
could only watch other people eat. One of a million sad stories
we are all familiar with, oh well.
couple of weeks ago, I was driving in my car and an advertisement
for another Wrap restaurant chain began to tantalize
me with blow by blow descriptions of their Southwest Super
Burrito or Super Thai Burrito, or etc. etc
I decided to fight back. Glutenfreeda would develop rival Super
Burritos to match anything they could think up!
challenge, what will we use for the wrap? Corn tortillas are too
small to hold enough ingredients and our homemade gf flour tortillas
are sometimes not supple enough to hold together with that much
Then I found in my local grocery store, corn
tortillas, super burrito size! To soften them, I heated them one
by one on a dry cast iron tortilla pan over a high flame. You
can use any large cast iron pan, or any heavy-duty skillet that
will take high heat. I heat the tortillas just until pliable and
then turn them over just until the tortilla is soft and bendable.
I heat the oven to 250 degrees F, and place the soft tortillas
in foil and keep them warm in the oven until Im ready to
the fun begins. Follow our general formula and you can make as
many Super Burrito combinations as your imagination will allow.
formula is simple: Spread gf sour cream or aoli on the warmed
tortilla, add a layer of hot cooked rice, then add rinsed and
drained beans of your choice, meat or fish, flavorings and wrap!
