What Makes a Perfect Breakfast Burrito?
What make an average breakfast burrito (BB) the best? Well, the perfect BB comes from a variety of characteristics. These include:
- Flavor – Monotone is not best. The best has a flavor which keeps the customers taste buds interested. Not only the combination of flavors, but also the how those flavors distribute throughout the burrito. From a well blended, flavorful burrito to a chunky un-blended burrito with a new experience in every bite, flavor can come many ways.
- Construction – Blending or chunky? Tight or loose? Dry or wet? The construction can greatly influence the eating experience. A loose, wet, sloppy burrito is likely to fall apart midway and even leak out the bottom. A dry, well blended burrito can be too dry and hard. Let’s find the middle ground.
- Slop – Let’s call it the amount of sauce. Here in Colorado, the Chili Verde sauce reigns supreme. Coloradans love their sauce. Unfortunately, this sauce can make it too wet and too salty. A good chili verde sauce is mouth watering, but should be added to a burrito to enhance it, not simply be there because it is Colorado.
- Ingredient Ratio – Too much egg, too much onion, too much sauce. Getting the proportions right is vital to a well structured, enjoyable burrito. Whether the foundation is beans, eggs, or potatoes, we are looking for a complimentary amount of sauce, add-ins, and flavor. No one really likes a potato burrito??
