Brisket Burrito

In yesterdays comments, several folks called me the king of leftovers, I appreciate the kind words and I'm trying to get better at figuring out what goes with what - this is kind of my laboratory.  My leftover hero is Chez John over at Fat Johnny's Front Porch - as a retired executive chef, he puts together some amazing dishes from his leftovers.

One of the good parts about being a BBQer is the nice things I find when I go freezer diving – in this case it was some brisket. We’d already used it for a couple of simple meals but tonight, after a hard day of wood splitting and no lunch, I was ready for some serious eats. Bev made it while I rested my weary bones and came up with the meal – after I said I’d like a brisket burrito – remember she goes the extra mile.

She chopped and warmed the brisket and laid it on a flour tortilla along with some pepper jack cheese, picante sauce, and a few chopped jalapenos. After rolling, it was topped with venison chili, shredded cheddar and pepper jack, grape tomatoes, lettuce, green onion and jalapenos.

It was delicious and really hit the spot – actually, I was stuffed. If you ever wonder what going the extra mile looks like, compare the above photo with the one I made myself for breakfast yesterday.


A little old lady was going up and down the halls in a nursing home. As she walked, she would flip up the hem of her nightgown and say “Supersex.”

She walked up to an elderly man in a wheelchair. Flipping her gown at him, she said, “Supersex.”

He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered, “I'll take the soup.”

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. That's priceless Super Dude:D O have flank steak in the freezer that would be a good substitute for these delicious looking burritos.

  2. HAHAHAHAAAAA!! Good joke!! LOL
    Wow, that burrito looks and sounds wonderful!

  3. Can I have one of those even though my bones aren't weary? Bev treats you pretty nice! Funny a foodie sort of way!

  4. Nice Looking Buritto Bev! Sounds great! It's a good thing that you're taking care of Larry. It's a big job but I know that you can handle it... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. I am raising my glass and toasting the brisket burrito that Bev prepared for you-Oh yes!!! That would be a satisfying meal after splitting wood.

    You do, do some great things with leftovers. :-)

    Stay warm.

  6. Hi Larry (Super Dude) just wanted over from DianeB's blog and you sure have soem good eats here. It's after lunchtime and I was hungry just looking. I'll be checking some back posts to see what I've missed. Feel free to drop into our place anytime for a look around.

  7. That burrito makes me believe that somebody LOVES you a lot! :) And the joke was too funny.

  8. Cute joke, Larry... That brisket burrito looks fabulous. I'd like that one better than the fish one you posted yesterday I think... I love fresh seafood--but I'm a little picky!!!! ha

    Have a great day.

  9. Great burrito Dave; you and Bev did a great job with those leftovers!

  10. Good joke! I like to go the extra mile for food, too. Left to his own devices, my dearly beloved will take cold leftover meat and wrap it in a tortilla. No cheese, no heating, no nothing. Poor dear! Well, at least I know he needs me!

    Have a great weekend, Larry; I know you've got some great Superbowl eats up your sleeve!

  11. The joke is too funny.

    That burrito is over the top good looking....especially with all of that good stuff, literally over the top!


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
