Mexican FEAST! Paleo burritos revisited, bananas, plantains, adobo sauce

Burritos speak to me.  Handheld edible wrappers of deliciousness.  Game on.  The problem is, store bought tortillas aren’t great if your’re avoiding flour and corn tortillas, well, suck.  The little feast took a fair amount of work, but it’s worth it!  Previously, I did a little Cinco de Mayo feast that can be found here.  Disclaimer, there’s a fair amount of steps, so take short cuts as needed.

As for the filling:

  • Once the peppers and onions were done:
  • Add 1C rice/quinoa mixture
  • Add 1C beans
  • Add 1/2 C adobo sauce
  • Add 1 mashed banana
  • Add 1lb cooked ground pork (cooked with ~ 1/2C adobo sauce previously)
  • Add 1/2c water
  • Add spices (1tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp black pepper)
  • Simmer
  • Each burrito can accomodate ~ 1.25C of filling and is roughly a 5 block zone meal

Once everything has cooked together for 5-10 min, start making your burritos and save for later.

Happy feasting!

We are busy. We are overbooked. We are traveling. We are unmotivated. We are tired. We are agitated. We are unproductive. We are overweight. We are unhappy. We are why. I'm a pharmacist, I travel regionally for work and have been all of these things. What elevates me from these emotional ditches? Good health. My nearly 100 year-old Italian grandmother "Nana" said a long time ago: "If you don't have your health, you don't have nothing." Considering she still rakes leaves and gives me hell for, well, just about everything, I think she's pretty damn sharp and fit. On the other end of the spectrum: My dad died at 65 from a heart attack. He was a diabetic, a previous smoker, a recovered drug addict, a food addict, hypertensive, arthritic, immobile nearing amputation and, simply, wasn't living. For all intensive purposes, I'm fit and healthy. Armed with degrees in biology and pharmacy (read: loans) and these two family stories, you'd think staying on track is easy. Newsflash: it's not. Traveling / Working / Fathering / Mothering / fill-in-the-blanking are obstacles we all have to overcome. So, how do we do it? Suitcase Fitness was born from the hope that by sharing my small health and fitness victories while traveling, others may be inspired to find new ways to stay engaged with their health. My vision is that others will use this venue to share their "baggage" and small steps taken to overcome health challenges. I get by with a little help from my friends. - The Beetles The things that last, never happen overnight. - Slaves
