Burrito with Cheese

It seems like it has been very trendy to make posts with detailed recipes so you will be able to follow it step-by-step. I thought it would be fun to show you step-by-step instructions on how to make one of my favorite meals.

C. has been on the tractor a lot lately, which means I am on my own for supper. I don't like heating up the kitchen and making something complicated for one person, so I typically pull something simple out of the freezer. Recently it was frozen burritos.

The key is to start by placing the frozen burrito upside down on the plate so the burrito will cook evenly, then set the timer for 1 minute, 30 seconds.

With approximately one minute left, turn the burrito over so it is correctly positioned on the plate.

And yes, real people's microwaves have popcorn butter splashed on the walls. That's what microwaves are for.

With approximately 20 seconds let, remove the burrito from the microwave and cover thoroughly with sprinkle cheese. More is better, don't go light on the cheese. Shredding cheese is a waste of time. Buying the stuff in the bag is much more convenient.

Make sure to eat a good-sized pinch of cheese directly from the bag. Return the burrito to the microwave to finish cooking.

When the burrito is finished cooking, you could add fresh vegetables to your plate, but the easiest option is to dump some Fritos on your plate and grab a Dr. Pepper. This is how frozen burritos were meant to be eaten.

Keep in mind that frozen burritos, Fritos, and Dr. Pepper have absolutely no good nutritional value. It's also important to remember that they are most likely filled with tons of fat and calories. It is advisable that you get out your running shoes and hit the road after giving the burrito an appropriate amount of time to settle in your stomach. However it is completely understandable if you would like to follow your burrito up with a pudding cup and watch trash tv for the rest of the evening.

You make me hungry! I love to do this, but I like to top mine with chili, onions, jalapeno peppers and then cheese. Sometimes I use salsa and cheese to give a little extra kick.
