Freakin’ Big Burrito – a homemade version of Portland’s famous Honkin’ Huge Burrito, from Portland’s oldest food cart. Incredibly tasty, for the days I cannot get to the cart downtown.
My first post college job was in accounting at Saks Fifth Avenue in downtown Portland. For lunch, I’d often walk up one block (from Fifth Avenue, one of two stores in the country actually on Fifth) to our Pioneer Courthouse Square, to Portland’s oldest food cart, Honkin’ Huge Burrito.
I ordered the largest burrito (the Honkin’), ate half for lunch, and enjoyed the other half for dinner. For like, four bucks.
Even if it were ten bucks, I would have been and would still be faithful to Honkin’ Huge Burrito – they are among the most delicious burritos I have ever had in my life. I have had many burritos.
First, they have these tomatoes.
Back then, I’d ask what was in these tomatoes?
“Love. They are made with love.” they’d answer, every time.
Kind of like a stewed tomato? Saucy, anyway, and sweet.
So. I decided I’d make my own sweet tomatoes.
