Purse Burrito

So - let's just start with this: the purse burrito.  Hopefully this is a concept you all understand and embrace, but if you don't regularly enjoy a purse burrito we need to get you on the bandwagon!

A purse burrito is typically the last two inches of a giant overstuffed burrito from Chipotle that you have wrapped up and saved in your purse (or biznatchel if you're a guy) until later in the day when you're hungry again.  Genius, no?!

I guess you could have this burrito from anywhere, but the original purse burrito was from Chipotle and if you know me at all, you understand how I feel about tradition and honoring one's heritage - but I digress. The original purse burrito came into being when my friend Reyna had regular appointments with her midwife which was pretty much adjacent to a Chipotle - so we would meet for lunch whenever she had an appointment.  And then those burritos would be just two inches too long.  Too much left to just toss, but just enough to make you sick.  You see the dilemma.  I'm sure you've been there yourself.  You feel my pain.  One day I just wrapped up that last two inches and stuck it in my purse.  And you'd better believe that I was a hero when we were at Costco that evening and I was able to hand my pregnant friend a perfect little burrito snacklet.  It made me laugh to be eating a burrito that I pulled from my purse, but I was also grateful, because I was hungry - and somehow a purse burrito is almost better than the fresh one you ate earlier.

I currently have a purse burrito working and it will come in handy tonight at the little league game that I anticipate lasting many hours.  So - if you're around and need a snack, I'm happy to share.
