I love Chipotle. (Is there anyone who doesn’t? Please, make yourself known. We need to talk.)
But I never order a burrito – always a salad. When we were in Mexico, we had the most-delicious burritos EVER and I started to wonder if I was missing out with my typical Chipotle order. I’ve since ordered a burrito at Chipotle, and then at a local Mexican joint, Cactus, but neither compare to the one from Burrito Revolution.
So for now, I’ve decided that I’ll stick with salads (or burrito bowls!) at Chipotle, tostadas at Cactus and make my burritos at home.
These five-layer burritos have just that: five layers of refried beans, avocado, pico de gallo, sour cream and shredded lettuce. On their own, these ingredients are nothing special, but when combined they make a delicious, easy and nutritious dinner that comes together in minutes. And that’s something we can all use more of.
It’s hardly a recipe, but more of a reminder / new dinner inspiration.
Here’s my tortilla theory: sprouted is best, followed by whole-grain/corn/flour. I understand that sprouted tortillas aren’t for everyone….and if you solely look at the nutritional facts between flour and whole-grain flour tortillas, the differences are pretty small (think 2 grams of fiber), so I say, eat what you prefer! If the white flour tortilla tastes much better, you’re bound to feel more satisfied after eating it. (And this topic is one that probably deserves a whole post, because it applies to many foods!)
