Burrito Crawl

I have lamented here before about how much we miss burritos.
US burritos.
US, cheap burritos.

On our recent trip to the US we decided to challenge ourselves to eat a burrito a day for the entire time we were there. We even rated them.

(All ratings are out of 10 possible 🌯 's. Many were shared with Joe or eaten over the course of two meals.)

Warm Up Day 1: Chicken Burrito from Chipolte
(doesn't count as a real burrito because it's from, uh, Chipolte).

Days 12-14 No Burritos  - Burrito Crawl officially over. At that point we moved on to pursuing other culinary treats that we've missed since living in Switzerland. 

We had:
Cheerios





















In-N-Out Burger













Sour Cream and Onion Chips





















And HUGE turkey legs!





















We came back from America with our burrito (and junk food) cravings thoroughly satisfied. Glad to be able to only indulge when we visit.


Today's poem is a shout out to our faraway floured friend, the US, cheap burrito:
warm fillings
spicy taste
causes cravings
tortilla embrace

  1. Ha! You had me at the title, and considering I cannot go to your top-rated place, I'll have to depend on my Denver's burritos. My son-in-law adores them, is often looking for a great one. A small diner is one place that he loves. I personally am a taco fan instead, and do have a favorite place. Happy for your find & that you found a kind of burrito that touched your heart before you had to depart! (Bad poetry day!)
