Happy Friday guys! The recipe of the day is Wild Boar Burritos! It is quick, easy and really really tasty. And if you, like me, have all the ingredients cooked in advance, or using leftovers :-), there’s no actual cooking required, more of an assembling the burritos. 🙂
This is the perfect recipe for a lazy Friday night in front of the TV or this is what I’m dreaming of. 🙂 The only tricky part is the closing the tortilla but I’m sure there are quite a few tutorials out there so that won’t be a problem. I myself, am a perfect wrapper thanks to my one year working in a Tex-Mex restaurant. Great times, but that’s another story. Back to the burritos now…:-)
I’m a big fan of all Mexican and Mexican inspired recipes. However, it’s really important for all the ingredients to be super fresh. think most of them are so simple but so delicious. The Mexican is one of my favourite cuisine along with the Italian. It’s actually hard to say which one is my favourite because I really like food and I love very different stuff too.
Anyway, these burritos or wraps if you’d like were probably one of the tastiest I’ve made and that’s because of the meat I used. We love wild boar and because I had some leftovers I decided to use it in the burritos. I didn’t make a proper guacamole though, felt a bit lazy. 🙂 What I did was adding sliced avocado, coriander or cilantro and fresh lime juice. It was a lot like guacamole without the onions. Also, I haven’t used any rice in this recipe but that didn’t make the burritos less appetizing. On the contrary, I stuffed lots of fresh salad leaves inside for a fresh and crunchy flavour. I’m seriously drooling now. I believe I can eat these almost every other day. And with a pint of beer they make the perfect meal for the end of the week! 🙂
