    My favorite starts with homemade carnitas. Pork shoulder rubbed with a combo of cumin, oregano and chipotle chili powder. Put it in the crockpot and cover with chopped onion, jalapeño, and garlic. Cut an orange in half and squeeze the juice over the pork then leave the halves in there. Cook slow 8 hours.

    Shred with a fork then into the hot skillet with EVO to crisp up one side. Throw into your favorite tortilla with the condiments of your choice. Have a little be left from earlier in the week. Thanks for the suggestion, Tweedy!

    I don't make them anymore,

    I go to los compadres on a st. in Hayward, and order the chorizo burrito
    it is my favorite, but, now a days, because of my age and declining digestive abilities, I must order this and eat it before 1:30 in the afternoon

    on the other side, I do have my abuelo's chorizo recipe, all the way from his hometown outside of Salamanca, my cousins and I will make that together about twice a year, that is very nice

    Happy to oblige.

    I don't, however, use Bob the tool. That might cause some consternation for some.

    I like Chipolte. All the local places here just make a fancy version of a Taco Bell burrito.

    What I don't like about Chipolte is the portion control. Mounds and mounds of rice, then just half a spoon of chicken. It should be the other way around.

    But the guacamole.... I'd eat that all day.

    Any carnitas recipe where the pork is not cooked in its own fat is wrong.

    good tortillas, carne asada, cilantro, onions, jalapeños, tomatos, avacado, lime juice, good hot salsa, cheddar cheese, rolled up and smothered in chollula sauce.
    the place down the street has soft shell crab burritos, possibly the greatest thing going at the moment.. El Zarape.

    Chipotles guac is the real deal. That's how TJ street vendors and corner stands hook it up. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Yeah, somebody at Chipotle did some research on the guac. Too bad about the rest of the menu...

    I'm not sure I've even tried a Burrito - seriously :)

    I also wouldn't know the difference between a burrito, an enchilada, a tortilla and a taco. In fact I'm impressed I could even rattle off those names :)

    None of you have had a California Burrito unless you have been to the Mission in SF

    Sounds great - I'd be up for it:aok

    In fact there is one not that far from me now that I've looked it up so I really am going to try it.
