The Best Caucasian Burrito Recipe In The World!

Best Caucasian Burrito Recipe

The Best Caucasian Burritos in the world, only a comic book artist could create!

Free recipe by www.DennisSweatt.us
This recipe is for meat lovers only. Vegan's feel free to experiment at your leisure and let me know if a substitute can be found.

You will need an omnivore to confirm your results.
Cooking and preparation take about 45 minutes. This ain't yo mamma's burrito recipe!
Large tortillas! 20 count. (This is a big mix!)
Tortillas are toasted over flame or electric grills. Not doing this robs your burrito of its true flavor.

Rosarita Refried Beans: 3 cans (Traditional)
Hotlinks: 3 links
Hamburger 2.5lbs: 70%-85% lean

Swiss Cheese shredded 1/2 lb
Cheddar Cheese shredded 1/2 lb
A block of cheese takes very little time to shred and tastes better!
Sour Cream (Neutral balance, sweet juxtaposed)

Soy Sauce (low sodium is ok)
Ketchup (Heinz is best)
Fresh cracked pepper

Kitchen Tools:
Frying pan
One gallon saucepan
Cheese shredder
Sharp knife
Wooden spoon
Space to layout your large burritos for filling
Two bowls for shredded cheese
(I don't mix the cheeses, they have their own layer when melted)

1. Put refried beans into hot saucepan (Browning). Simmer.
2. Heat frying pan
Split hotlinks in fourths, cut into quarter-inch pieces.
Cook hot links until very brown or slightly black.
Put cooked hotlinks into the saucepan with beans. (Simmering)
Place hamburger directly into the hotlink frying pan. (flavor)
Add Soy Sauce to the frying pan until the bottom is wet.
Simmer hamburger until medium-rare, draining off fat.
Put frying pan back on the stove directly.
Add a big squeeze of ketchup until all meat is covered.
Add Turmeric, paprika, and cracked pepper.
Stir and simmer until gooey. 
Turn off the stove, for beans and meat.
Two options: Pour the hamburger directly into the beans (time saver), or as I do, each addition has its own layer. 
Burrito prep:
Spray both sides of your tortilla with Pam.

Place your tortilla over a medium setting on flame or electric stove burner. 
Toast until you see bubbles or slightly brown. This is a big part of the whole flavor.
(Please be careful over hot flame. Cook at your own risk.)

Filling Tortilla:
-A heaping wooden spoonful of refried beans should fill a large tortilla. Spread with the bulk of the beans around the center.
-Layer hamburger at your discretion. So long as you can still see a little bean underneath.
-Layer both kinds of cheese.
-Spread sour cream as desired from one end to another.
Fold a small end, squeeze and roll!

Why Learn Gesture and Contour Drawing in School?

My first art class was at 48yrs old. I've been drawing since I was six. 

Gestures and contours make sense because they are head-to-toe visions of the body.
In art class with charcoal sticks, we began with gesture lines, the model holding each pose for 30 seconds to describe movement and direction.

We then made gestures for one minute with different poses.
Not until we filled a newsprint sheet with multiple drawings did we begin to sketch the model.
The mind-hand connection takes time even for a professional.

We didn't spend excessive time on gestures and contours. They are not required for life drawing but assist in the warm-up.
Art for most is flow and control in unison.
