I love a good crispy fried burrito or is that a chimichanga? I don’t know but I love them, that crispy flaky flour shell gets me every time. Except where can you buy them anymore? I don’t know and now it doesn’t even matter because I’ve mastered the art of making Crispy Baked Burritos at home.
Of course I am not whipping out the deep fat fryer or the dutch oven to fry them. I hate the smell that lingers after frying. I’m baking up these crispy flaky burritos and every one in my house cheers when they see me rolling burritos for dinner. Serve them with a little fresh salad and salsa and dinner is complete.
Crispy Baked Burritos
I love a good crispy fried burrito or is that a chimichanga? I don't know but I love them, that crispy flaky flour shell gets me every time. Except where can you buy them anymore? Doesn't matter now that I can make these Crispy Baked Burritos at home.
roll the burritos up folding one side in first, then the two side and give it a roll to finish it
place the burritos in a heat proof pan and brush with oil
place in the lower section of the oven and cook for about 10 minutes
letting them bake crispy
Putting them in the lower part of the oven is essentially baking them and then when the broiler cycles on it will make the tops crispy brown. Be careful if you put them too near the element they will burn pretty quick. And then you'll be sad after making such a quick delicious dinner.
