Recipe: Puerto Rico In A Burrito

I have a tendency to go through waves of eating. By this I mean that I will put my hooks into a certain type of food and not let go for a long time. A lot of the correspondence I have received in the past year has revolved around making waffles. I am still a waffle fiend but as times change and tastes change so do the meals that I prepare.

I also love to make things easy in the kitchen. I do not have a lot of time during the week to create elaborate dishes and so I try to keep my cooking to 30 minutes or so. Sometimes that involves prepping before hand (not often) or making a breakfast meal (happens a lot) or knowing how long it will take to make a dish and not wasting time when I walk through the door from work.

Since my desire for a particular meal can change in a heartbeat knowing what I have in my pantry and fridge is vital to getting into, cooking and out of the kitchen as quick as possible. That is no different with this recipe for Puerto Rico In A Burrito.

Back to putting my hooks into a particular type of meal. Lately, I have loved rolling burritos and putting anything and everything into them. From the simple Cobb Salad Burrito to Buffalo Cauliflower Burrito to this burrito there is nothing easier to eat than a burrito.

As a kid rice and beans was a staple of our diet becaus Puerto Ricans serve it with practically every meal and yes that includes breakfast. When I thought of a rice and beans burrito I also decided that plantains, the way my father loved them, had to get thrown in along with some peppers and onions.

What came out of my kitchen was better than I had imagined. Give this recipe a try and let me know if Puerto Rico In A Burrito is a keeper for your menu.
