Chorizo and Duck Burrito

July 16, 2018

If you like burritos, then you’ll certainly enjoy this East-meets-Mexican masterpiece: a burrito stuffed with duck and Chinese chorizo. Yep, that’s right! Greasy, fatty Chinese meats and fragrant jasmine rice rolled up in a nice, toasty tortilla.

Some bok choy was added to balance out the meats’ oiliness. But health-wise, don’t expect much from the vegetable. All of the flavor has been absorbed by each grain of the jasmine rice, packing this burrito with a truckload of calories. Delicious calories, if I may add.

So, if you want a different, Oriental twist to your usual burrito, load up on the duck and chorizo and start heating those tortillas. The burritos and jasmine tea make an excellent pair.

    Hi! I’m Kien Develos, a college student. One requirement from a certain subject asks us to look for a recipe with pechay one of the ingredients. I’d like to ask permission if I may use this one. It’d really be of great help. Please? 🙂
