Chilli cheese burrito

I am not a huge fan of these. To tell you the truth, I haven’t had many of them to tell you honestly whether or not I like it.

I tried the KFC version once and it was okay, but it didn’t scream at me to try it again.

I came across this recipe in Nadiya’s cookbook and I thought why not give it a try. It was a quick dish that can be made in under 45 minutes, which is just perfect for my busy Saturday mornings.

I was busy speaking to someone the other day and he was telling me how he doesn’t seem to have enough time to do much anymore and I was telling him the same. Growing up, we had school , homework, afterschool activities, club sports and a family life and there was still enough time to get 8 hours of sleep. Now I just open my eyes and it’s a running start every morning. It feels like as soon as I finish breakfast its time for bed already… yes yes… I know I am being extremely dramatic here.

All in all it was still an okay dish. To me it just seemed weird to be having rice and a wrap together, but my dad seemed to have enjoyed it. The only complaint he had was please do not put a lot of cheese on it. He hates cheese all of a sudden. Wonder if it has anything to do with my quick and easy toasted cheese sandwich?

I am still doubtful if I would eat this again or not.
