Giant burritos stuffed with sliced chorizo sausage, creamy potato cubes, buttery avocado, onions, peppers and aged white cheddar cheese. I like to call this “man” food.
Roasting the vegetables and chorizo not only makes things easy but brings great flavor to the burritos. Not that they need it. The spicy-seasoned chorizo has enough bold flavor for the entire burrito so you don’t really need to season these with anything other than salt and pepper.
For a finishing touch I like to pan-fry them in a little butter until they get all nicely golden brown and take on some crispness. Biting into the crunchy, buttery pan-fried tortilla doesn’t compare to baking them or heating up the tortillas before assembling them.
The first thing you will notice is how heavy they are! Made with 12-inch flour tortillas they are hearty and filling enough to satisfy the hungriest appetites. Plus any and all cravings for Tex-Mex.
I made these with my father in mind, the meat and potato lover in the house. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t thoroughly enjoy them.
I love “man” food.
