Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, we’ve made breakfast burritos before. Gimme a break ok, they’re damn good. These burritos will follow essentially the same concept as before, however today, the main component will be chorizo. We are also going to make six of them instead of one.
What you will need:
- One pound of spicy chorizo ( the highest quality you can get)
- Six large eggs (the higher quality you get the easier they are to cook with)
- One red bell pepper
- One red onion
- One wheel queso fresco cheese
- 8oz mexican pre-grated cheese
- 12oz of your favorite salsa
- One avocado
- Six flour tortillas
- Sour cream and hot sauce (for final toppings)
Start off by putting about a tablespoon of butter into a skillet, then proceed to brown the chorizo in it. While the chorizo is browning, preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9×13 baking pan. You will also have time to chop up the bell pepper, and about half of the red onion. Set the pepper and onion aside to brown after the chorizo.
Next, crack all six of the eggs into a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk them until well blended, adding a bit of salt and pepper. By this time the chorizo should be about done. Remove it from the skillet and let it rest. There should be only a small amount of grease left in the pan, use it all to cook the eggs in. Cook the eggs until they are about 80-90% done, then set them aside (the remaining cooking will complete when we throw the burritos in the oven). Next, you may need to clean out the skillet before you brown the vegetables (be careful, cleaning too hot of a pan will damage it). After this has been completed, put a bit of butter int the pan and toss the vegetables until lightly crisped.
Finally, the assembly can begin. Place about 1/6 of the chorizo, vegetables, and eggs into each tortilla. You should be able to break off the queso fresco and crumble it on top of all the placed ingredients. Fold each tortilla so that the overlap of the tortilla is tucked into the next one (it will prevent them from opening up while heating up in the oven).
Once the pan has been assembled, pour all the salsa on top, it should thinly cover the entire pan. Next, place all of the mexican cheese on top, again covering the entire pan. More is more when it comes to grated cheese, it never looks like enough. You are now ready to place your creation into the oven. It should take about 10 minutes, or until the cheese on top is fully melted. While in the oven, take this opportunity to chop up your avocado.
Once out of the oven, drizzle with sour cream, hot sauce, and the chopped up avocado. Eat the entire pan if you must, however I split the concoction and almost bit off more than I could chew with three burritos.
Now, for this weeks pairing we will search for something a bit different than last time, perhaps something to help one cope with a vicious hangover. Cannatonic should do the trick, as it has a high CBD content, and a low THC content. Most importantly, it has an earthy, citrus palate, which should help the richness of our breakfast burritos. This particular strain should also help you to relax, which will help a nasty hangover and the itis associated with this meal. Further analysis provided by:
“Cannatonic is a very unique strain, from my experience. I usually smoke THC dominant bud, whether it be a heavy Indica or a daytime Sativa. This is true medicinal marijuana, though. Cannatonic has very little psychoactive effect. For some, that is a negative, but for some it is a major and strain defining positive. This certainly isn’t recreational weed. It isn’t going to get you stoned or high. This is just pure good stuff with true medicinal effects. About 5-10 minutes after smoking, the effect starts to set in. A very nice, broad body buzz, all pain melts away, physical, emotional, and mental. This strain has all the medicinal benefits of marijuana, without the psychological effects. Personally, I quite enjoy the psychological high from THC, but for those of you out there truly looking for marijuana purely from a medicinal standpoint, for those of you who need relief but don’t want to get high or be cloudy, this it it. The strain is very high in CBD, and low in THC. It’s very good stuff, it can be up to 60 for 1/8, but you can find deals on it too. Very worth it.”
I think the name of this strain speaks for itself, as you will likely become catatonic after consumption. You may want to clear your schedule for the rest of the day, but who am I kidding, if you’re hungover, you likely already have. Until next week, quench your thirst, and enjoy the outdoors.
