Say, “Ole!” To Our Vegetable Bean Burrito

You don’t have to travel south of the border to eat this tasty Mexican favorite! Wrapped in a healthy whole wheat flour tortilla and stuffed with delicious vegetables and beans, you can indulge in one of the best healthy Mexican food recipes without feeling all the guilt.

These days, burritos are more popular than ever, and they are made with a variety of different fillings and tortillas. The popularity of using “toppings” for burritos didn’t really become popular until the 20th century. More and more, you see restaurants and people alike topping their burritos with condiments like sour cream, olives, and a mixture of different cheeses.

Our vegetable bean burrito is a healthy Mexican food recipe, and is stuffed with a plethora of mixed vegetables including carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, and Spanish onion. You can’t have a burrito without beans, and our burrito is no exception. In addition to the crispy vegetables, our burrito is stuffed with healthy helpings of kidney and white beans.

Our chefs use a combination of Mexican spices to season our burrito to perfection. Sultry suntan pepper along with a combination of thyme, parsley, and garlic give our burrito the flavor punch it needs.

Accompanied with our tasty burrito is a hearty serving of our crunchy and delicious carrot and raisin salad. The salad consists of a color confection of shredded carrots and raisins, and is mixed with a combination of cider, curry, garlic, vinegar, and apple juice.

With all of these fun and tasty flavors, the fiesta will be on your dinner plate, for sure!

Picadill-Oh: Don’t You Want Some?

Say goodbye to the banana as you know it and say “hello” to our wonderful Picadillo with Plantain recipe!

Straight from Central America right to your dinner plate, our picadillo will have you tasting a wide array of bold spices and cultural flavors!

Picadillo is a traditional meat dish that has been around for centuries. Many Latin-American cultures, as well as the Dominican Republic and the Philippines, have passed on picadillo recipes for thousands of years. Picadillo is probably most popular in Latin-American countries. Here, many of its citizens use picadillo as a good source of meat which is generally made up of ground beef, with various combinations of bold spices, including cumin, oregano, garlic, peppers, and red onions. The spices vary from culture to culture. Many countries even use picadillo as a stuffing.

Instead of using the traditional ground beef, our chef uses lean ground turkey to make our picadillo. The lean turkey is combined with finely chopped tomatoes, along with fresh garlic and onions, and bold regional spices that give the lean turkey just the right punch of spicy, but satisfying flavor.

Plantains are a fun, flavorful side dish, and they are used by many different cultures to create a variety of flavorful dishes. Plantains are used most prominently in countries like Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras and Jamaica. In fact, they use the plantain like we use the potato here in the States. What makes plantains special is that they can be cooked at any stage of ripeness. In some of these countries, plantains are also ground up and made into flour so they can be used to cook other foods.

Today, plantains are fried, eaten raw, or even eaten as crisp and tasty chips. It is a bountiful fruit that keeps giving us an extensive variety on the ways we can eat it. With plantains, the possibility of recipes is virtually endless!

To perfectly complement the boldness of our picadillo, our plantains are slightly sweetened by our chef. To finish off the dish, our chef garnishes both the picadillo and plantains with petite green peas and raisins. The combination of the bold spices in the picadillo, with the sweet, subtle flavors of the plantains is sure to give you a healthy, great-tasting dinner of international delights!
