Clean Out the Fridge Burrito

That title makes this meal sound absolutely nauseating. Sorry 'bout that.

We had a handful of items floating around (read: taking up awkward space) in the fridge recently, so I threw together what turned out to be a tasty (and super-filling) lunch. Seriously, make a side and this could easily be dinner.

And, since my pictures were too massive to make a GIF (oops), here's the exact play-by-play. You don't even need a recipe. Just start with a tortilla (whole-wheat, in this case) and put whatever you want into it. You don't even need to heat anything up before assembling; just throw it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes (or more, if it needs it), and voila!

Side note: For mine, I used leftover rice, black beans, corn, rotisserie chicken, some salsa and a sprinkling of cheese. Feel free to sprinkle with some S&P or cumin and chili powder for some kick. Even add more veggies -- cooked broccoli or asparagus would be yummy.

'Kay. So, here's the pictorial recipe. I won't even talk. Promise.

*Lets out air* No idea why those middle ones wouldn't turn to match the rest for me, sorry 'bout that! But, seriously, who else is impressed by that one-handed burrito folding??

Oh. Just me, then? M'kay, that's cool. Well...hope you try it and like it -- and the clean fridge when you're done!


  1. I think my comment was eaten by the internets . . it was something witty about how I like meals like this too because I hate little amounts of stuff hanging out in the fridge . .

    And your folding is better than mine with one hand or two ;)

    1. *shakes fist* Darn you, the internets! Sorry about that! I'm glad I'm not the only one. And is it weird that I thought of you when I was making it - about how it could easily be made without meat. ;-)

      Style doesn't matter as long as it tastes good and holds its shape relatively well. ;-)

    2. Not weird - you're sweet! :)
