Alicat**06.10.2019 and Sara asked to prepare Mexican inspired dishes for the 5th Weekend Cookbook Challenge03.06.18** to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, which is a celebration of freedom and liberty .
That’s a real challenge for a German food blogger. I live in the north of Germany, further the north of Hamburg, where the Mexican cuisine is not wide-spread. We have only one Mexican restaurant and that’s not the kind of food our children like.
In my bookshelf I found this book, bought during my travelling through California, Arizona and Texas. To tell the truth, I never looked into this cookbook till now. Many special Mexican ingredients are hard to get, like the tortilla corn flour or a great variety of chiles. I can order them in online shops. So I flipped through this book for an easy recipe to prepare and stopped at: Burittos, which are made by wrapping a filling such a refried beans or a beef and bean mixture in a large flour tortilla. They are usually held like a sandwich and eaten plain, but are occasionally topped with sauce.
Hoping that this cookbook autentically represents the Mexican Cookery, I accept the challenge and serve
I could remember the taste! I hope I did not blame anyone with my German-stye Mexican cookery.
In the delicatessen section of our grocery I found guacamole, salsa and refried beans. I prepared myself the flour tortillas in my new pan which should be suitable for tortillas. It passed this test. I modified the recipe for Carnitas a la Casera – Home-Style Meats, but that should not matter.
My son got a special filling: Just refried beans and grated cheese.

Can you get fresh avocados? It takes no time to make your own guacamole.
I know, but there were no fresh avocados last weekend ;)
