Breakfast Burritos de La Mancha

There was a Cash Cab question yesterday asking about Don Quixote where the answer was La Mancha and so for the rest of the day I just added de La Mancha to everything I said. Sorry. I'm sure if there are breakfast burritos in the land of La Mancha they would taste just like these.

I've mentioned Twister's as one of the New Mexican things I'm beginning to appreciate. They make these really great breakfast burritos and I usually order the ground beef version which is particularly good. One day I was in the mood for shredded chicken and I asked for a special order. Well I was extremely disappointed with the taste and vowed to make it better. Last night was the night where the vow came true.

Here is what you'll need:
  • chicken broth
  • thigh meat (I used boneless and skinless, you could also try breast meat but I used dry for the extra flavor)
  • minced garlic
  • minced onion
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • potatoes
  • paprika
  • garlic salt
  • bacon
  • eggs
  • huge tortillas
Pour the chicken broth into a medium sauce pan (depending on how much chicken you have). Stir in the garlic, onion, salt, and pepper and add the chicken. Cook over medium-low to low heat, bring to a boil and simmer for at least 30 min. 

While the chicken is cooking cut the potatoes into half inch cubes. Add some water to another sauce pan and put the potatoes in. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15-20 min or until the potatoes are soft to the touch. While this is cooking cook the bacon. 

When the bacon is done remove the bacon from the pan and add the potatoes. Add the paprika, garlic salt, and pepper to the bacon fat and stir and cook for an additional 5-10 min over medium-high heat. Crumble the bacon over the potatoes and stir in.

Scramble some eggs.

When the chicken is done shred the chicken with a fork. If the chicken is cooked right the meat will easily separate. Now just combine all the ingredients in a tortilla and wrap up. Enjoy your amazingly fatty breakfast burrito. 

If you have any green chile, chop up some green chile and mix with vegetable oil and flour and heat it enough to get it warm. Then add this to either the inside or the top of your burrito or both.
