While grocery shopping yesterday I happened to notice the rack of tortillas,. and realized I’ve NEVER eaten a burrito.
Clearly I should remedy this.
The vague impressions I’ve gained over the years is that a burrito is a category, like a sandwich. As in, you plop whatever you have/like onto a tortilla, fold and roll it, and (optionally?) fry it up a bit before eating it So there are ‘traditional’ fillings for burritos, but no reason you can’t have a BLT burrito or a PB&J one if you wanted to. Right?
Anyway, the packages I looked at had plain, spinach, and tomato/garlic burritos, and looked around 8" in diameter. If you were making them as the main course for, say, six adults, how many would you make? How much ‘volume’ of filling do you put into each one? Like, a quarter cup of a couple different things, or a half cup? Or X ounces of meat, or whatever unit you might think in terms of.
And the frying: is the point just to make it hot? Or do you want it to look fried? Or be totally crispy/crunchy?
Do you serve the packets whole or cut in half?
As you see, I probably don’t even know the right questions to ask. And, no, there are no taco restaurants within the distance I am willing to travel given the current cold snap/covid situation. Thanks!
