Taco-Burritos

Our friends Tim and Caroline have been telling us about their burrito-taco combo for some time and when they invited Mr T and I to try them we jumped at the chance.

The taco-burritos were awesome, they combined the excellence of a taco in a non messy burrito. Pure genius! I will certainly try to recreate it at home. Here is Tim showing us how to do it.

And then you wrap the burrito up around the taco.

Here are all of the fillings: cheezly, avocado, salsa and chili (with beans and tofu).

I took along some chewy chocolate chocolate chip cookies and chocolate peanut butter chocolate pretzels. I decided after watching the US office (which I am addicted to) that I had to combine my fav salty product with sweet things. I melted some choc chips with a tiny bit of margarine and dipped the pretzels in and then I melted the peanut butter with a tiny bit of margarine and tried to drip it over the chocolate coated pretzels they didn't look very pretty but I made them in a rush. I think they tasted pretty good but I'm a bit pretzel fan so I might be biased.


Dan made tasty rose water biscuits (pictured above-right) and a yummy salad with apple, cheezly, red onion, beans and I forgot what else, but it tasted great!


We also had some soy ice cream and tried to combine all of the sweet things, here is a chocolate chip cookie, topped with a preztel and chocolate soy ice cream.

I'm sorry about the quality of the pics. I still don't have a camera and rely on Mr T's phone camera which is not the greatest.

Taco burrito, that's genius! I wonder if it would work with corn chips instead of taco shells...

And all the desserts look sooo good too. You're making me hungry!

Theresa, we discussed using corn chips but decided they probably wouldn't be quite as good because of their pointy edges.

Hey Kristy,

Thanks for the comment on my blog, always nice to find another Aussie one. Your profile pic looks familiar, are you in the Aussie Veggie Facebook group? I was going to add you but there are a few Kristys! I think you must know Lidia too :)
