Okay, I'm a locksmith, not a cook. But what is a burrito, anyway? Take a flour tortilla, throw anything on it, roll it up - voila! It's a burrito. So we are not talkin' haute cuisine here. We are talking fast cheap dinner for three right now! For less than fifteen dollars to boot.

So let's get to it. This takes about a half hour without rice, or about 45 minutes with rice.

If you like rice in your burritos, start it first. Then wait about ten minutes to start the rest of the process. That way, everything will be ready and hot at the same time.

The chicken is the heart and soul of this dish. I allow about half a good size chicken breast per person.

  • Slice the meat about into strips about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet.
  • Add sliced chicken. Saute on on one side for five minutes
  • Set the table
  • Put out other fillings on the table: guacamole, salsa, grated cheese etc.
  • Turn chicken with a spatula. Season to taste with black and white pepper, other hot spices that you might like.
  • Heat up any other hot ingredients you might like, such as black beans, pinto beans, or re-fried beans
  • Using the spatula, scoop the chicken into a roasting pan
  • I always warm the tortillas in a clean second skillet because I think its nice. Just throw them in, no oil, on the bare skillet for a few minutes on each side
  • Put it under the broiler for five minutes until tinged golden

Once the chicken is on the table, everyone can wrap their own burrito. That's the way I do it, because I'm terrible at wrapping burritos! You do what you want.

Okay, so I'm not going to put up a picture of the finished burrito, because when I do it, it just ain't pretty. But it tastes good!

Salad makes a great complement to this dish.

      That's right. Not sure if I can really have reverence for all life and eat it, too. But I think I can. Thanks, Paul

      LOL, I know what you mean about them not being pretty, I can't wrap them either. I enjoyed your down to earth approach to this. Fun to read and no doubt delicious to eat. I'll definitely give it a go.
