Week 1 A Place To Stand Day: 4

Activity 2: Pancakes and Maple Syrup? [4 points]
Aotearoa New Zealand is home to many spectacular sights and natural wonders. One of these is the Punakaiki Rocks and Blowholes located on the West Coast of the South Island. The Punakaiki rocks attract tourists from all over the world who are keen to see these amazing rock formations. Many people think that they look like pancakes stacked on top of one another. Pancakes are one of my favorite foods! They are delicious and pretty easy to make.
For this activity you are asked to choose one of your favorite foods. On your blog, write the name of your favorite food and then tell us how to make it. You may need to ask a family member, friend or Google (!) for help, if you do not normally make this food for yourself.
How to make burrito
I like having food that’s easy to grab and microwave. I’ve made a pile of Burritos and kept them in the fridge to eat whenever I wanted. Making burritos at home are cheaper than buying the frozen eight packs.  If you don’t mind spending the time. Or making a mess.
  • There are three key things to remember when making burritos.
    First, don’t over fill them. Tortillas have a capacity limit, And it’s smaller then you think. If you go over that limit then you just made a mess. A sure sign you over filled is having a hard time folding and rolling. Burritos are easy to roll when you’ve got the right amount of fillers. It’s one of those things you get with practice.
    Second, use water to seal it up. If you want to burritos to stay together for more than a few minutes, just dampen the inside Edges before making that final fold. It’s fast acting to make sure you have it right before brushing the water on.
    Third ,heat up tortillas before assembling the burritos. I put two on a plate and run them in the microwave for about 20 seconds. After  they are warmed up, tortillas are more forgiving about being  handled. This makes a big difference  in the final results.  Just being warmer then room temp makes the rolling process easier. If they are slightly warm to the touch then the tortillas are ready.
    You can fill them with anything you want.  I usually mix shredded cheese in with the chili and hamburger when I make burritos. This just happens to be what I was doing when I decided to film the process.

    Thank you for sharing with us how to make some delicious burritos! It is great that you've mentioned how easy it is to make these from home as an alternative to buying the frozen packs.

    Sometimes we tend to go for the more convenient option but it is super important to think about our health before anything.

    I like how you have mentioned your own way of making burritos. Shredded cheese and chillies sound like a perfect combo. It is a really great dish to adapt and make it into your own by mixing your own choice of ingredients as a filling.

    How often do you make burritos? My favourite food changes all the time because I get sick of them quite easily!

    Keep up the awesome work,
