Feliz cinco de mayo, un poco tarde

As a late celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I pulled this gem of a burrito out of the freezer. Late 90s is the best guess as to its purchase date.


If you look closely, you can see giant ice crystals on it. Surprisingly, this didn't taste freezer burnt, although (not surprisingly) it didn't taste good, either. According to the wrapper, it was a chicken burrito, but it was more like refried beans and some small gritty pieces. The tortilla also took a lot of beverage to get it to go down. Pretty dried out and crackly. Probably the microwave cooking method didn't help. I'm not a fan of microwaved burritos, but I was in a hurry and the oven method took too long. Not my favorite vintage lunch (or was it breakfast?), I can tell you that.

Oh, it's big. There used to be two. Thankfully, one of them kicked the bucket a few years ago. Too bad this blog wasn't started before then. It could have gone on forever!

The one that's left is like a clown car, things you wouldn't believe fit just keep coming out.
