I'm aware it'll likely fall apart, even after getting rid of excess moisture by squeezing my sprouts.

sweet corn is a great ingredient for burrito.  I shaved some off of the cob last week.  Tuxedo corn is the bestest.

WTF is a mashed sprout?

I can't help but feel like you're taking liberties with the term "burrito".

CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!!!!

Needs more rice and beans.

He had an Amys burrito yesterday.  And he liked it.

That not a burrito that's just gross.

My daughters didn't finish their cobs, into the 'burrito' the corns went! It definitely added something.

Brussels sprouts. The sort of thing the English eat once a year, at Christmas.

I know. :) I've had countless other cuisines over the years, this is almost entirely new to me. It shows, I know.

I should have warmed the tortilla, it stuck to the foil. Maybe one less soft next time? :/

I just saw a recipe for mashed Brussels sprouts with cream and Parmesan. I may have to try this despite my initial reservations.

It's stuff inside flat flour dough, so it's technically still a burrito.

I'm wondering what the over/under is on which creates more flatulence?  Beans or mashed sprouts?
 
2017-08-28 10:16:42 AM  
So far here, the one with the beans ramped up faster.
 
2017-08-28 10:22:28 AM

Incidentally bazbt3, was in Aldi yesterday and they had tawa pans. They're supposed to be for chapattis of course, but if you're making your own tortillas, might be good for that, too?

No no no, this has gone too far.  Mashed sweet potatoes, sure.  Mashed Turnips, fine.  Mashed cauliflower, whatever.  But you don't mash cruciferous vegetables, that's crazy talk.  What next, mashed cabbage?

"Mashed sprouts, sweetcorn, redcurrant jelly, tiny squirt of ketchup"

That's an awfully 'British' burrito.
Perhaps you should call it a 'Britisho' as not to offend Mexico & planet earth in general.
 
2017-08-28 11:28:44 AM  
You just cannot call anything boxed in a soft tortilla a burrito.  Just no, no.  BAD SUBBY

It might come to that, the tortillas we normally get are too soft, squishy, though great for wraps. ;) My wife got some gluten-free ones recently, yuk, too-dry, but I'd imagine with the right surface properties for a burrito.

No. It's acceptable in mashed potato (bubble & squeak, colcannon) but on its own, heck no!

Mashed cauliflower? You'll be suggesting florets in cheese sauce next!

You come to Tucson: I'll let the burritos explain why what you describe is an abomination before all creation.

That's not a burrito. That, at best, is a "wrap". Which is to say, "a bunch of random ingredients stuffed in a tortilla"
 
2017-08-28 11:52:14 AM  

Marcus Aurelius: Needs more rice and beans.


Rice is just filler.  I never use it in my burritos.  Ground beef or pork, or steak or chicken, seasoned, with sauteed onions and peppers (like a fajita), topped with shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream, refried beans, and diced tomatoes.

/Made some on the weekend.
//Will have leftovers tomorrow.
 
2017-08-28 11:53:54 AM  
Sprouts?  Red currant jelly?

Go back to boiled meats and innards and leave Mexican food alone, limey.

Yesterday I said a burrito is whatever you like in a tortilla. I see you took that is a diffrent direction than I was thinking but it is your show. I only ask you go get some restaurant burritos/tacos soon and share that experience with us.
Dont get me wrong, I always have tortillas in the fridge and I have put some odd things in there that I would not call a burrito. Keep in mind I really like bread, because I have put stove top stuffing on a tortilla with some melted cheese. Many times.

/Don't follow the directions, just microwave water and butter in the measuring cup and add to stuffing, mix with fork

Indeed.

Is there such a thing as a worldwide organisation devoted to the furtherance and preservation of the Spirit of the Burrito? There should be.

You're not fooling anyone zombie bazbt3.  We all know that you died after that burrito mistake.

No. In these parts, what you describe is usually referred to as abuelas. And an abuela, although unusually highly tolerant of variety in food, would fark you up six ways from Sunday for referring to your abortion as a burrito.

"...different direction" heh! Interesting suggestion there, thanks!

Well, the stores here return to normal hours tomorrow, I might stop off on the way home and get some more 'authentic' ingredients.

You don't cook it in the foil.

Take a flour tortilla.  Cook it in a clean cast iron skillet, turning until browned.  Put on a plate and then add your finished seasoned meat . rice, beans, vegetables, and cheese.  Roll up.  THEN wrap in foil.  You are done.

Enjoy!

Ah. Thanks. It was just the store-bought thing then.
