Bohan Burritos

burrito mexican food cooking how to beef beans frijoles torilla lettuce cheese queso taco stop lossI’ve been making Bohan Burritos as long as I can remember. I’d say it’s an old family recipe but I’m pretty sure my parents created it. I’m not sure how they came up with it, but there’s no way it’s an authentic Mexican recipe. In fact, the closest thing I’ve ever seen to it anywhere else is a soft taco from Taco Bell, and well, there’s really no comparison.

I use Tostitos White People salsa. Deal with it. They used to make it in smaller jars, but I couldn’t find it. I was going to only use 3/4 of this bigger jar, but I accidentally the whole jar. That’s okay though, it’s still good.

I used to have to shred the cheese myself, but now that I’m a baller I buy pre-shredded cheese. Shredded cheese is the greatest invention since sliced bread, but what was the greatest invention before sliced bread?

Then put a strip of lettuce about 2/3 the way across it. I do lettuce first so the grease from the meat can’t soak through the tortilla.
