I had a bunch of fries’ leftover from eating at a local burger place that I had saved so I decided to make a popular burrito here in San Diego. It is known as a California Burrito and typically has Carne Asada, French Fries, Frijoles, Cheese, Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, and Mexican Creama. (A 7-layer burrito if you want) Any way I started out making everything and was taking plenty of pics with my phone camera but somewhere in the middle of my cook I somehow (and I have no idea how) set my phone back to “Default” mode. Anyway, I don’t have access to those pics as of now and may never have access to them as they may end up being erased. So, I whipped out my Canon 70S and took the following pics at the end of the cook. I had purchased some Carne Asada and flour tortillas from the Mercado. I made up a bowl of Pico, A bowl of guacamole and some Mexican Rice. (No Pics) I then grilled up the Carne Asada. Here it is on the grill.

I brought this in and diced it up into small squares.

I then started to assemble the burrito. Started out with a nice layer of Mexican Cheese. Then the Carne Asada, Fries and some Pinquito beans.

Then some Pico de Gallo, guacamole and some Mexican Creama.

I rolled it up and placed it on the grill.

Here it is done and ready to cut.

Wow amazing...……… what's in the Mexican Cream?

Thank you riverfish

 

Crema is the Mexican version of French crème fraîche. Both are slightly soured and thickened cream, milder and less thick than American sour cream, with crema being the thinnest.

Nice! I used to make grilled burritos back in the day. Try a bit of your favorite salsa brushed on the outside of the burrito just before you grill them.

Thank you SmoovD. I'll try and remember that for next time.

I was worried you would put rice in your California burrito and I had never seen that before.  I love California burritos at our local taqueria (just down the street from the school I work at which is hugely convenient) and they let you ha e a choice of meat.  Asada is good but AL pastor is my favorite!  I also load it up with their addictive green sauce that is made there.

      Since my Husker Game was finally on in the evening we had a watch party at our house. I wanted something we could eat while watching the game, so I decided on Runzas (AKA Bierocks) and corn on the cob. (Both of which are Nebraska staples) I followed Cowgirl’s recipe with a few changes this time.

       
      This time I subbed out a 1 lb. chub of Jimmy Deans regular sausage for one 1 lb. of hamburger. I also tripled the amount of garlic. Both tweaks really added to the flavor and I’ll be doing so on all future batches.

       
      Here’s a link to a thread of my first attempt making these where the original recipe can be found.

      https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/23518-dutch-oven-bierocks-or-runzas-or-whatever-you-want-to-call-them/

      Started out making up the dough.



      Prepped all the ingredients and took them all out to my gas side burner.




       

      Sweated the onion and added the hamburger.



      After the hamburger was mostly browned I added the salt, pepper and cabbage and cooked until it wilted.



      The dough had risen nicely so



      rolled it out into a log



      and cut it into 8 roughly equal pieces and formed each piece into a ball.



      I then rolled each piece into an approximate 7” round and placed 2 giant spoonful’s in the center.



      I folded up the edges and pitched them together and placed each into my Dutch Oven that I had already smeared with butter. I repeated this process until it was full. I prepped my kamado for the Dutch Oven and preheated it to 325.



      I then closed the lid and let this bake for approximately 35 minutes. And here is the result.



      I carefully cut around each one and plated one up with a ear of corn and wash this down with a Pizza Port Brewing Swami’s I.P.A. (IPA not shown)



      Yum!

       
      Everyone thought they were delicious and the game results were good as well.

      It’s been hot this last week here in Low Cal (Upper 90’s to low 100’s) but today it cooled off, so I grilled a few Cheeseburgers. I started out by cutting 2 russet potatoes up into 1/8th and then tossed in some OO and seasoned with some fresh ground salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and some thyme. I then seasoned the patties with Primo Chicago Stockyard rub. Here they are on the grill ready to be flipped.

      Flipped them.

      I then removed the patties and toasted the buns. While they were toasting I added some cheddar cheese slices to the patties. Once the buns were done I put the patties back on to melt the cheese.

      Here it is plated up with the Steak Fries and a Modelo Especial.  

       

       

      YUM!

      Sent the long weekend off in style with a Double Meat Double Cheese Burger. Fired up Jr. for the patties.



      Flipped and removed them when they were done so I could add the cheese.



      Toasted the buns.



      One more time of the grill to melt the cheese.



      Plated this up with some watermelon, potato salad and a Stone Brewing Xocoveza. (Yum!)




       



       


      After a few bites of this monster.



      So good!

      For the long weekend we started out being invited over to our neighbor’s house for hamburgers. I was tasked with grilling up some corn.



      Once these started getting some golden-brown char marks, I put them in a large rectangular pan and covered them with foil. We took this over with two each, 3 portion plates of fixings. One plate had a stick of butter, salt and black pepper for traditional American style corn of the cob. The other plate had some mayo, Tajin seasoning and come Cotija Cheese for Mexican style street corn. Didn’t feel like I should be taking pictures at their house so that’s all I can share from the 4th.
      Today I grilled up some hamburger patties on my Akorn Jr. for some cheese burgers.




       


      After they were done I removed them and toasted the buns while I added the cheese to the burgers.



      One more stop on the grill to melt the cheese.



      Here is mine plated up with some potato salad, some watermelon and a Stone Brewing Vanilla Bean Porter.




       



       


      There nothing quite like enjoying a good cheeseburger on the 4th of July weekend.

      Chicken is my wife’s favorite and I like to cook things she’ll like, most of the time , so I cooked up some Chichen Shawarma. Started out by skinning and de-boning some chicken thighs that I had thawed out. I cut each in half and set them aside in the fridge.



      I now got out the ingredients for a yogurt based Sharwarma marinade.




       


      Everybody in the pool



      and gave it a good spin with the whisk.



      I then put the chicken thighs in and stirred it up to get complete coverage on all surfaces.



      I then covered the bowl with plastic wrap and placed them in the fridge to rest overnight. Now I made up a batch of Tzatziki.



       
      Link to recipes:
       
      The next day I broke out my vertical spit.



      And loaded it up with the Shawarma and topped it with a nice thick slice of red onion



      After I had preheated my kamado up to 325 for 1/2 hour I put the Shawarma in.



      I checked on it after about 25 minutes and knew it could go much longer.



      After about 1 hour I started getting everything ready. I cut up my veggies



      and got the Tzatziki out.



      I also set up my craving station.



      Once the Shawarma developed some char on it, I removed it and sliced off the outer layer and then placed it back in the kamado.



      I warmed up some flat bread and spooned on some Tzatziki and then made up some Shawarma Sammi’s.



      Here they are served street food style with a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and some mandarin orange slices.




       



       



       


      SO GOOD!
