I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THE BEANS AND RICE
Notes: 1) I changed the amounts for the rice and beans in the list of ingredients, 2) I cooked the sausage with a microwave, 3) consider putting the guacamole in two bags to better protect the guacamole from air
I am VERY EXCITED by this burrito! This is my solution for having chorizo when I cannot travel to a deli. I put 1 tablespoon of spices in 1 pound of sausage. Some breakfast sausage may be plain. Sometime soon, I am going to get a meat grinder attachment for my mixer. Once I have the attachment, I will be able to make chorizo with fresh ingredients. I have seen people on the internet grind vegetables with their pork. I want to make exciting Mexican and Cajun sausages with pork shoulder meat!
Since air turns the guacamole brown, I have to store it in a bag with the air removed. Dipping the bag in the water removes the air. I need the guacamole to last for approximately 4 days. Also, since I have to touch the filling when rolling a burrito, I discovered that putting the wet stuff on the tortilla first enables me to roll a burrito on an 8 inch tortilla very easily. In these pictures, I put the sour cream, guacamole, and salsa, respectively, on the tortilla. The link to the recipe for my original burrito and the notes on the evolution of these burritos appears below.
- 1/2 cup rice
- 1/2 cup pinto beans
- 1 large sausage patty
- sour cream
- pico de gallo
- cotija cheese

Elementary Recipes For Making An Exciting Burrito – Summary
Note: 1) I sprinkled table salt over the chips
I dream about returning to the cantina where I went when I was young. One of my desires is to recreate things from the menu at this restaurant. This cantina had a red and white checkered floor. The walls were covered with wood paneling. There were pictures on the walls. People danced there sometimes.
The restaurant was different than the cantina. There is a type of Mexican music called romantic music. The excitement at the restaurant was romantic. The excitement in the cantina excited me similarly to the experience I have when I listen to Mexican or Grupera music. Appreciating Mexican culture is an important part of my life.
These chips are made with tortillas. I deep fried the pieces at 350°F/177°C until the color of the chips changed. I put smoked paprika on the corn chips. I put sugar and cinnamon of the flour tortillas. Someone should put sugar on both sides of a chip to create an exciting flavor. I want to serve these corn chips with salsa that is very runny and flavorful. This salsa will contain vinegar. I will have to work with an old recipe to create something called caliente.
I used the lamb barbacoa in my previous blog post to make burritos. I saw a picture of someone making a burrito while I was surfing the web. The person layered the ingredients. This person gave me the method I wanted to be excited to make burritos! One of the ingredients was spiced rice. I like making rice with Rojo from Penzeys. I make the broth for the rice using a large measuring cup. Using 1 tablespoon of Rojo for each cup of water or broth is exciting. When I make Mexican rice, I add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to every 2 cups of water or broth. Vegetable oil is not neutral cooking oil, it adds flavor to the rice. These beans are from Rancho Gordo. They had great flavor. The flavor of the beans is richer than pinto beans, but since the flavor of the lamb was so great, the combination worked well. Beans from Rancho Gordo are very flavorful and exciting! If I did not want to take risks, I would make this burrito with plain rice and pinto beans.

This tamale casserole was exciting. I made tamales a long time ago. One of the suggestions in one of the blog post was to bake the tamales in a water bath. I used a new combination of peppers. This combination was great. It reminded me of the flavor of my favorite frozen “red hot” burritos. I used about 3 guajillo peppers, 2 ancho peppers, 4 cascabel peppers, and 5 arbol peppers. I got the peppers at Penzeys. I also included the seeds. The seeds add an important flavor to the sauce that makes it more authentic. I originally did not use the seeds. Filling the casserole with less meat would create an experience more similar to tamales. I attempted to make pulled pork in the oven, but the temperature must have been too low. I had to use a food processor to cut the meat. Next time, I am going to increase the temperature. Someday I will know the elementary method for making pulled pork in the oven. I baked the casserole for 90 minutes at 450°F/232°C. I am already planning to use this new sauce with beef to make burritos!

I was making a simple dinner with Jacques Pépin when I realized that this may be the most exciting chili that I have eaten. This is very good. This recipe requires Chili 9000 chili powder from Penzeys. In the future, I plan on using traditional chili powder. I want to believe that the proportions for the spices in this recipe will work with any chili powder. If the results are as exciting when I use Chili 9000, I will have created a great recipe! Jacques Pépin created the original recipe that I used to make this recipe.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 6 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans

I have perfected the appearance of my deep dish pizza. This sourdough bread dough has the perfect texture for making a pizza crust. Sourdough pizza crusts may not be ideal for pizza because the flavor of the crust is very different, but the pizza was still very good. I believe that I should enter the test kitchen to finish my project. I baked this pizza in a cast iron pan in an oven with the stones and rocks from my blog post Basic French Bread Recipe Using Contemporary Techniques Inspired By Thomas Keller. I will also have to perfect the proportions of the ingredients in my pizza sauce. I put a note for my current proportions at the top of the recipe. From observing many recipes, an Italian pizza is made without curiosity. Italian tomatoes make a great sauce. The crust recipe may be made with flour with less gluten. I flavored my favorite crust with butter.

Seasoned vegetable consommé is venomous! Chicken poached in consommé is my very favorite. This recipe is from my blog post Ramen In Szechwan Chicken Consommé & Boiled Chicken Salad Sandwiches On Sourdough. In this blog post, I used vegetable consommé and Tien Tsin chili peppers . I also ground the Szechuan peppercorns. The chili peppers add heat to the consommé, but they do not add a lot of flavor. The ground peppercorns add a course flavor to the consommé. Since vegetable consommé is not as exciting as chicken consommé, I had to add more flavor using sesame oil, fish sauce, rice vinegar, and granulated sugar. Soy sauce may also be exciting. Someone should consider substituting the sugar with brown sugar, honey, or some other sweetener. 1 tablespoon of fish sauce for every quart of consommé is probably a good proportion. When someone adds sesame oil to something without cooking it, the flavor is very strong. Brown sugar is probably more pleasing with these ingredients. Next time, I will add 2 star anises to every quart of consommé.
