Mango Melon Burrito Goodness

Last nights dinner consisted of, once again, burritos. Not just plain ‘ol burritos, there was fruit salsa involved. I had leftover watermelon, a mango, tomatoes from the neighbors and citrus everywhere, so why not?

I sautéed onions, collard greens, green peppers and dumped in some cumin with some olive oil. And yes, I love cumin, so I really do dump it in. Just several tablespoons, whatever I’m in the mood for. For the salsa I chopped up watermelon, mango, (and for Chris’s salsa, tomatoes!), and threw in some orange and lemon juice. I also used this sweet chili sauce, seasoned to taste-just for another kick in flavor. Finally, I cut some fresh basil from my little garden for some sweetness and color. I just so happened to have some leftover guacamole from turkey burgers the other day,  so that was also thrown into the mix. You might think, is all that too much? The answer is no! This plate was so delicious I’m still thinking about it.

 Another kitchen tip. I use scissors to cut alot of things up quickly, especially herbs. It’s faster, prettier and saves time.

 Ingredients: corn tortillas, olive oil, onions, green peppers, chopped collards (why not?), cumin. Salsa: watermelon, mango, tomatoes, orange and lemon juice as well as some sweet chili sauce.  Toppings were guacamole and sour cream of course!

Cost for many many servings of burritos( 5 servings, approx 9 burritos-this was made up of many leftovers and ingredients I already have and will continue to use for many more meals): $8

The beer was supplied by the neighbors, we have such giving neighbors!


About inpursuitofrealfood

I am a real health conscious food lover always in pursuit of real, great food! My journey began way back around 2000 when I realized it was time to grow up and eat better. Fast food was not cutting it and staples I grew up on such as burgers and spagetti were getting old. I also began trying a new diet experimenting with what I ate and how I felt as far as energy levels and keeping my skin clear. Since then it has been a rewarding journey in the kitchen trying new fruits and vegetables and tons of fantastic new recipes.
