Superbowl Eats Part II!
In my recent post Creole Chicken Artichoke Balls I discussed my love of sports, and my need to create food that can stand up to my rambunctious sports loving family.
I decided to pull out my smoker, yes it's cold out but the smoker does all the work. Look at this meat, crispy outer shell that is so tender I used my hands to pull it apart.
Take the pulled meat and stack it in the center of a burrito shell with cheese and whatever other toppings you like.
Use the flour water paste to baste the outer edges of the burrito shell.
Fold one side of the burrito over, and put paste on top of it.
Fold the other side over tightly. Then put paste on both ends of the burrito and fold them over. You should have a tight neat packet that is ready to fry seam side down first. I always refrigerate my burritos for about 30 minutes.
You could also bake these if you want. I would say at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes flipping half way through.
I truly believe my family can handle this during the Superbowl without destroying my floors. Note: assemble these the day before and fry or bake them Superbowl day to save time.
OK, someone had to taste them, why not me!
