Mmmmmm… liquid burrito.

    It wasn’t clever, it was just common sense. Though people without common sense tend to think it’s the same thing.

    Pureed burritos… Pureetos! Excuse me while I go find the patent and trademark offices…

        Damn you. Now I’m picturing the Liquid Burrito machine at your local 7-11, with the handy 1-liter cups and spoon-straws!

        I have learned at some discomfort that there is no marketing idea so puerile and tasteless that it will not turn a profit. A friend of mine actually left his company when they started making refrigerators with TVs in their doors. The company made money hand over fist with them. I can understand and appreciate his disgust.

    Lots of food is aw-something when liquefied.

    Like chicken.

    One chicken. Three carrots, two onions, some leek, salt & pepper, and cleaned lemon rinds stuffed inside the chicken. Cover with water and boil gently for 25-30 minutes. Let simmer under lid for an hour, minimum. Remove lemon rinds and purée the rest until the bones are completely disintegrated. You may have to adjust the time depending on size; this is for a chicken weighing appr. ½ kilo.

    Alternatively, boil and simmer the chicken and debone it, then purée it with the vegetables.

    Serve with rice on the side, fresh bell peppers, and small beer, mead or kvass as the beverage of choice.

    I pureed a burrito once after some dental surgery; my dentist wanted me on a liquid diet until the stitchees came out. It was a big disappointment! The tastes of the liquified beans and tortilla totally dominated the mixture, almost completely overwhelming the spices and meat. 🙁

    This morning I took my weekly dose of alendronate (restores bone calcium). Now I have to wait 2 hours before I can drink my Roulneethdunk. I take the alendronate on Mondays figuring that if I need to ruin one morning every week, it ought to be a Monday. Otherwise Mondays would be as bland as a pureed burrito, now that I am retired.

    Howard Tayler in his webcomic “Schlock Mercenary” has something called a “chupa queso”; basically a pile of cheese fried in cheese grease and flipped over to make something like nothing else.

    Ever since I posted that, I’ve been thinking about chupaquesos. Rather than possibly expose Christopher to copyright infraction, do a Google search for “schlock mercenary chupaqueso” That will link you to the webcomic where Howard describes how to make one, and to a couple of videos showing them in the making.

    I’ll take mine with mushrooms, green pepper, and either bacon or ham. Remember: melted cheese = HOT, so don’t burn your mouth trying to suck them down before letting them cool a bit.

    Ruddock is displaying thought processes on deeper and deeper levels here.

    Though I prefer my burritos solid over liquid. Maybe a paste but not liquid please. Though now I am hungry from reading about the food. And I have no means of fixing it that way.
