The Best Basic Burritos

This is really THE BEST burrito recipe ever. My Mexican food obsessed husband is very particular and he says they can't be beat.

Life with a baby is going well. He's still a perfect angel, hardly cries, sleeps like a charm, etc. Not to mention the fact that ever since he had his first bath, his hair is CURLY (most days).

As for me, not only have I gotten back to baking, but I already have gotten back into my pre-pregnancy pants (this triumph is not to be diminished by the fact that they may or may not have an elastic waistband).

Anyway, these burritos are something that I actually made before the baby was born. I had planned to freeze some of them so that we could have some easy meals, but we accidentally... ate all of them.

The fact is, I haven't used any freezer meals that I had made anyway. I have a million chicken pot pies sitting in the freezer that I thought I would have to ration for really hard days with the chub, but so far he's been such a good boy (did I mention yet that he's the perfect child???) that I've been more concerned about "having to eat those chicken pot pies at some point".

But anyway, in case you didn't know, Samuel is a huuuuuuuge fan of Mexican food. Whenever I ask him what he wants for dinner, the answer is always the same: "Well, we haven't had tacos for a while" (a while meaning a couple of days).

I do make these about once a week on average and then they usually reappear on the menu by Friday night in the form of nachos. I never use a recipe, so they turn out a little bit different every time, but I must have chosen the perfect time to actually write down the recipe for once because Samuel is still talking about how perfect these particular burritos were. In fact, I think he thinks I'm going to be famous as soon as I hit publish. Well, here goes nothing...

(P.S. Samuel made these tortillas from scratch! Recipe coming soon...)
