Lately I have been avoiding fast food, its fattening and it can get expensive if you eat to much of it. But I'm off for the next two days and I just got done working a 9 day stretch. So I decided - I deserve a California Burrito. And you know what? It was gooood.
1) Its all about the salsa: If the salsa is no good than therefore the burrito it goes on cannot be good
2) Cheese has to be melted, part of what brings all of the ingredients together is the ooey gooey goodness that acts like glue
3) Lastly, you need a fresh, preferably home made flour tortilla
The carne asada more less usually tastes the same and the fries, yes i said fries, normally soak up all of the juices so they are soft rather than crunchy. Not normally an ingredient, I add sour cream which melds together with the salsa to make one hell of a sauce.
I'm really not sure what it is about this burrito that has had me salivating about the very thought of it for the last ten years. Its just a burrito its just food. But we all have a vice. I got used to the cravings when I moved to Dallas since there is nothing that even resembles this over there. Although now that i am back in So. Cal, Sol says she found a place, but I think her taste buds are a bit skewed since its been so long since shes had one.
And then...its over.
