So sometimes, you just have to order out. And what’s better than a gigantic burrito? Zliten, myself, and Mr. P were hanging around being couch potatoes on a Saturday and ordered up food to last us the rest of the day from Freebirds. Essentially, it’s a local Chipotle-type place where you can customize your burrito to your whims. You can actually make a great burrito there for right around 500 calories, and if you can finish it in one sitting, you’re more man than I. Which isn’t hard. Unless we’re talking pushups or running. At burrito eating, I am pretty much a wuss.
So I, at the coercing of my peers, got not my usual half bird, but a full bird. They decided to go with the monster. There is a super monster burrito, but I think it’s the kind of thing you might put on a tray and serve at a party, or offer to an attacking tiger, not something fit for consumption by one human at one meal. When bringing home the bag, I think it was about 10 lbs, it felt like a bowling ball. It could have seriously injured someone if thrown properly. Here is documented evidence of burrito party ’08.
Mine is somehow longer, but way skinnier.
The boys breaking into heaven…
See, no joke, the size of his HEAD.
Pretty much, after this, I had to drop the camera and eat my own. It took me all through lunch and dinner, and I finally gave up on the last third of it and put the contents over a salad, which actually may have even been better, if possible.
My poison consisted of a cayenne tortilla, chicken breast, black beans, a half scoop of rice, fajita veggies, corn salsa, garlic, onions, pico, tomatoes, lettuce, and hot sauce. Om. Nom. Nom. This place wins over chipotle because they list all their nutritional info on their website, and it is possible to create a healthy and lo cal burrito. Though, I really wish they’d do barbacoa, which is pretty much the best burrito filling ever.
One warning: never eat this burrito before running. I’ve done it twice, and almost PUKED both times from burping up garlic and hot sauce. Do not try this at home, or especially in your gym.
