Grilled Chile Burrito

This post is seriously fabulous. That’s why it’s brought to you by The Everyday Collection by TargetClick here to explore more of the collection. Click here to see more of the discussion.

At the beginning of the year I decided to start a vegetable garden in my front yard. I went to Target and grabbed all my supplies soil, planters, potting gloves, soil shovels…you get the picture. By early March, I had a nice selection of vegetables and chiles planted. Since then, I have been watering and tending to my garden, waiting to reap the benefits of my delicious efforts.

The other day I was out shopping for a bathing suit and sunscreen for me and my son when I got a phone call from my fiance. I answered the phone, “Hello.” His first question: “Where are you?” I, of course, said “Target! Where else? I told you I was going to buy a bathing suit.” He then said, “Oh great! I was just calling to tell you that the chiles in the garden are big and we should grill them today. I want a grilled burrito.” I laughed and responded, “I’m glad you already decided what we should do with my chiles, but now that you mention it…. that does sound like a good idea. Okay, well I’m here at Target so I’ll just pick up everything we need for our burritos. Good thing you caught me before I left.” Then he said sarcastically, “Yeah, like you ever make a 20 minute run to Target. I’ll see you in a few hours. I should be hungry by then.”

I picked up tortillas, cheese, steak, sour cream, and drinks. We made a simple, fast dinner that night, all on the grill. He was happy, I was especially happy with my fresh chiles from the garden, and how fast dinner came together (with the end result in a delicious burrito!). Plus, it gave me plenty of time to throw on my new bathing suit and go for a night swim.

Ingredients for Grilled Chile Burrito Recipe:

  • 6 – anaheim chiles (any pepper of your choice will work- bell pepper, jalapeno, or poblano)

  5. Place chiles on bar-b-que and grill on each side for about 10 minutes until chile is completely charred and a bit limp.
  6. While chiles are grilling throw your steak onto the grill as well and cook on each side for about 15 minutes or until completely cooked to your liking.
  7. Once chiles are cooked / charred remove them from the grill and with a small pairing knife make a slit down the front of the chile and insert a piece of cheese into the middle.
