These cheeseburger burrito wraps will satisfy your craving for a burger and Mexican food, all in one pocket of deliciousness. This weeknight meal is easy and quick to prepare and is sure to be a staple in your recipe repertoire.
There’s a long story behind the creation of these cheeseburger burritos wraps, but I’ll try to keep it short and sweet. Since moving to Canada from Italy over ten years ago, it’s become an ongoing joke in the family that my husband has yet to taste all of the different types of North American fast food. Truthfully, he’s neither tempted nor curious about Kentucky Fried Chicken and the rest of the lot-surely due to the fact that he grew up in a country that savours and appreciates REAL, quality food.
My brother has come up with a game plan. A sort of around the North American fast food chains dinner game, where once a month when he comes by for dinner he brings a fast food dinner of choice (which by the way, neither I nor the kids take part in). Taco Bell was on tonight’s menu. In light of my brothers’ dinner plans, I decided to prepare healthy burritos for the kids (I made a vegan version for myself with mashed lentils).
While the kids sat at the dinner table patiently waiting for their burritos to be served they were (of course) tempted by the smorgasbord of Taco Bell randoms on the table, so they tasted them. Their first official run for the border. And they didn’t like it.
These cheeseburger burrito wraps however, were devoured. The moral of my story? Don’t run for the border for dinner, and just stick to the REAL stuff!
For toppings I added a cubed avocado, some thinly sliced tomatoes and a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. You can personalize these by adding your favourite ingredients, like salsa, sauteed mushrooms, shredded lettuce, scallions, caramelized onions, guacamole, and goat cheese or feta cheese!
