Save your bucks with this burrito. Burritos are pretty standard elements in a lot of people's repertoire - and for good reason. They're super versatile, fun to eat, a favorite with kids, and can be as spicy, meaty, and flavorful as you want. Only problem is, they tend not to be cheap. Even at a fast food restaurant, you're likely to pay $7 or more for a burrito, but here's how to make one at home for about a buck.
To make your burritos amazing, the real key is texture. If your ingredients are too liquidy, the whole thing sags and gets really messy. That's why I keep salsa on the side, and why I give the shell a very light fry on both sides. And even though I'm cheap, I never put rice in a burrito, since it takes away from the texture and overall flavor-blend of the ingredients.
How was all this only $1?
-The pork came from a whole boneless loin I bought at $1.99 a pound.
