BBQ’d Burritos? I figured that since most things on the BBQ are highly delicious, why not wrap burritos up in tin foil and see what happens when you grill them for a bit. Turns out they get toasty warm, the cheese gets nice and melty, and it makes for a fresh, wonderful meal. Especially at the cottage where the BBQ seems to be running most of the time anyways. I didn’t put the burritos themselves directly on the grill, but I bet if you secured them with a couple of toothpicks and put them on, you could add crispy to the list of adjectives!
I always like meals that you can “build” yourself, like pizzas or tacos. I get the feeling this might be a kid friendly meal for that reason too….everyone likes to be able to pick their own toppings!
One of many potential toppings…..some nice chicken seasoned and grilled on the BBQ.
Assemble a variety of your favourite burrito toppings and set it up buffet style. This time around we went with grilled chicken, mexican rice, refried & black beans, grated cheese, sour cream, 2 kinds of salsa (homemade pico de gallo and from a jar) and homemade guacamole. (Those are veggie versions of BBQ Stuffed Jalapenos in the front!)
Throw your toppings of choice on a tortilla….
Wrap it up in tinfoil, and put it on the BBQ. Don’t forget to add your name so they don’t get mixed up!
Now, grab a beer and take a bite 🙂
Serving option #2: On the deck at the cottage with Stuffed Jalapenos and a big glass of Sangria. Heaven.
