Cooking burritos over a campfire is a fun way to enjoy a meal together. Your family and guests get to be involved in preparing the food. Start by building a campfire and then let it burn down for about an hour so you get a nice coal base. While the fire is burning you can prepare your favorite burrito fillings and set them up buffet-style. Set out corn, flour, whole-wheat, or sprouted tortillas and sheets of foil. Everyone can pick and choose their favorites and build their own custom burrito. When the fire is ready, set a cooking grate over the coals and place foil-wrapped burritos on the grate. You can use anything for fillings, steak, chicken, seafood, vegetables etc. Here are a few ideas:
|Take a couple of ripe avocados, add some fresh garlic, salt, lime juice |
and mash it up to make a simple guacamole.
Add some onions, cilantro, tomatoes and jalapenos if you wish.
|Saute some onions, jalapenos, garlic and cumin in a little olive oil.|
|Add a can of black beans and warm.|
|Chop up some tomatoes, onions, garlic and cilantro.|
Add a little olive oil, lemon juice and salt to make a fresh salsa.
|Saute some onions and peppers.|
|Grill a few chicken breasts and shred.|
|The burrito buffet.|
Brown rice, black beans, chicken breast, grilled peppers and onions, fresh salsa,
guacamole, a variety of cheeses, sour cream,
green salsa, lettuce, whole wheat tortillas.
|Fill tortilla with desired fillings.|
|Fold the top and bottom towards the center.|
|Roll up and wrap in foil.|
You can use a sharpie to write names on the burritos.
|Place on a cooking grate over a hot fire.|
Cooking time will vary depending on how hot your fire is
and how close the burritos are to the heat.
Just open the foil and check on them.
