Burrito night, at last

Burrito night was an evening of highs and lows. Rats!

Home made fresh salsa was a hit. Charles' purple tomatoes gave it a darker color and a richer flavor.

The burrito roast was FABU!  Tender, juicy, flavorful and most of all easy!

Burrito Beef

1  3 to 5 pound chuck roast
2 cups red salsa
1 cup green salsa
1Tbs cumin 
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp hickory smoked sea salt

mix together the three spices into a rub. Rub the meat all over.

Place meat in a dutch oven. Cover with salsas.

Cook in a preheated 300 degree oven for 3 hours. 

DO NOT OPEN OVEN! Don't check the meat. Leave it alone!  

After 3 hours the roast will shred with your fingers. The salsa will have reduced to a thick sauce. Stir the shredded meat into the sauce and serve.

The refried beans were also simple. 1 pound cooked pinto beans and a tablespoon of cumin.  I like my refritos a little chunky so I puree only half the beans.  leaving the rest whole for some texture.

Those were the highs.  The lows were the tortillas. They dried out and crumbled to pieces. Guess we will go to the store for ours!  Rats!
