Chile Verde Smothered Burrito for Improv Cooking Challenge

I got it, the perfect dish for the Improv Cooking Challenge for this month, which is 'Jalapenos and Cheese'.
Hellooooo!!!!  I love Jalapeno's and Cheese, especially together.  
And I'm really shocked, shocked I tell you,  I've never shared this before.
But I'm going to now, and you won't be sorry either.

This is actually a dish I make for myself all the time, but I was craving something a little hotter than normal, and kinda amped this up to just below volcanic heat.
What can I say, I like a little heat in my life from time to time.

To start with, you need some Chile Verde.  I happen to make it by the gallons and freeze it in meal sizes so I can just pull it out of the freezer, heat it and eat it.
Next up a flour tortilla.  I make mine almost from scratch, fresh every time we have Verde.  Actually, I use a mix, and then make the tortillas from that.  But the tortilla has to be thin and large.
You're making a burrito, so it has to be large enough to wrap.

Now for the assembly.
Place the tortilla on a plate, spread a smear of Refried Beans across the tortilla, then add a spoonful of  hot  Mexican Rice on top.

Add some pickled Jalapeno's (I did say I wanted some hot here), a few chopped onions, after that, ladle a spoonful of hot Chile Verde on top, add a good handful of cheese.  Then roll it up.   Ladle some more Chile Verde on top, add some more cheese and a sprinkle, or three of fresh chopped onions.   If it happens to cool off a little, as in the cheese isn't melting real well, zap it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or so on high.
Dig in and enjoy your own smothered burrito.  You can also serve this with some more rice and beans on the side if you wish.  Personally, I like having it all inside.

  4. mmmmmmmmmm, Sid! That looks too yummy! My family's "White Chili" is similar to your chile verde -- we just add white beans to it...

    I need to say, though, it's a little mean for you to post those incredibly delicious photos while my tummy's growling so loud I can't think! :D

    1. I make the Verde the way my husband likes it. He'd never accept putting beans into it, but I think it would taste amazing.
      Sorry for the tummy growling, not.

    1. Mine too. Which might be why I have gallons of Verde in the freezer, ready to thaw and eat at a moment's notice, well maybe more than a moment.
