Valentine's Burritos 6.15 A Vineyard Valentine

“Well, lovers love oysters. I don't. I love burritos; people don't want burritos on Valentine's Day.” “How do we know unless we give them the option, huh? That's it! I'll serve burritos!” “Sookie, no.” “No one else will have burritos.” “Sookie, you can't serve Valentine's Day burritos, that's flirting with disaster.”


  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced

  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced

  • 9 oz chorizo

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp pepper

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • ½ tsp chili powder

  • ¼ tsp cayenne powder

  • 1 15.5 oz can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 15.5 oz can light red kidney beans

  • 1 cup cooked white rice

  • 1 ½ tsp tajin

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 8 sun-dried tomato tortillas (you can also use flour or corn instead)


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add a tsp of olive oil.

  2. Add onion, garlic, and red bell pepper to the skillet. Saute for about 3 minutes or until soft and fragrant.

  3. Add the chorizo and use a spatula to break up the beat. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, and cayenne. Allow to fully cook, about 10 minutes total.

  4. Add the kidney beans. Allow to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes then remove skillet from heat.

  5. To the cooked rice, add the tajin and stir until fully seasoned.

  6. To make a burrito, spread a thin layer of sour cream over a tortilla. Then add a scoop of rice, then a few scoops of the chorizo and bean mixture.

  7. Fold the burrito by rolling one end forward, then tucking the ends in. Follow this guide if you need help.

  8. Place a clean, large skillet back of medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place the burrito seam-side down in the skillet. Cook the burrito for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

  9. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce!

And we’re back. I just posted a welcome back post in case you missed that. You can catch up on what’s been going on in my life because I’ve obviously been MIA here for the past 2 months. But enough about my absence, let’s talk burritos.

There was a lot of food to choose from this episode. If you have listened to some of the podcasts I’ve been on, I have mentioned the infamous octopus ice cream disaster from this episode as one of the main reasons why I’m not cooking EVERY food item from this episode. I haven’t done a dish that was voted for by my followers in a hot minute, so I left this one in the hands of my Instagram followers. It was between Sookie’s burritos, Rory’s bruschetta, and I even threw the octopus ice cream in there (but luckily that didn’t even come close to winning!). The other episodes in which my followers chose what I made were Teach Me Tonight (Luke’s triple chocolate brownies) and The Party’s Over (Luke’s rosemary and garlic focaccia). It’s always fun when my followers choose what I make, so maybe I’ll do that one more time for season 7.

I wanted to make these burritos as Valentines-themed as possible, which is why if you look through the ingredients list, you’ll only see red and white ingredients! It was a fun challenge to make a holiday-themed food that doesn’t normally go with that holiday.

Happy cooking from the Hollow!

If you missed what I made last episode (since it was so long ago), catch up here!

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day
