NATIONAL BURRITO DAY!
Did you know April 2 is National Burrito Day? Whether you prefer your burrito breakfast style, in the form of a chimichanga or soaked in red chile sauce, it’s the day for you to get creative and stuff those over-sized wraps with all the ingredients you enjoy. Share your appreciation for giant tortilla shells filled with numerous combinations of tender meat, ooey gooey cheese, spicy rice, fresh pico de gallo, seasoned beans, creamy avocado and any other flavor that makes your mouth water.
To join in on the fun for National Burrito Day, let me share with you my delightful experience with Freebirds World Burrito!
We pulled up to a full parking lot with an empty stomach. It was lunchtime and we were ready to chow down. Whenever Chanel and I go out to eat, it’s usually at a restaurant for our Sisters Who Lunch food tour. After our excursion at Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, we’ve been on the hunt for flavorful meals.
I was curious with how I was going to eat this giant spinach burrito in the car but my sister and I managed quite well. We balanced crispy chips and cheesy queso on one thigh and carefully held our Freebirds burrito in one hand. Of course with any meal in the car some spillage occurred but it was quite worth the bite.
Freebirds Spinach Burrito
The beauty about Freebirds is becoming your own chef to decide what goes inside your burrito. So I chose to make my burrito wrapped around a spinach tortilla piled high with cilantro lime rice, black beans, dark meat chicken, steak, roasted onions and peppers and a little cheddar cheese topped with mild tomatillo sauce, cilantro and jalapenos! Did I mentioned guacamole? Whew, now that’s a stuffed burrito!
Freebirds Queso and Chips
At first, I considered adding the triple cheese sauce on my burrito but sometimes too much cheese sauce makes me nauseous. Anyone else feel that way about cheese? The woman at the counter suggested I get the cheese on the side, which was an EXCELLENT idea. My adventurous sister Chanel poured queso sauce on every bite and seemed very satisfied with the flavor.
