Keep in the Kitchen: Tortillas

The flour tortilla is a blank canvas for a customized piece of art. They’re great things to have around in case you’re in the mood to repurpose the week’s leftovers in a wrap.

You can go as simple or complex as you want. I usually start with refried beans, ground meat, vegetables, and cheese.

Other good additions like tomatoes, salsa, rice and lettuce can beef up the burrito, but sometimes you just have to work with what you got. The best part for me is making the burrito as big or small as I want – no need for 1,000 calorie lunches. Sorry, Chipotle.

White, wheat, corn, spinach, whatever – tortillas are a handy and versatile vessel for all sorts of food. Burritos are just one example of a quick on-the-go fix that will satisfy.
