Breakfast Burritos With Green Chile Heritage Pork Sausage
Breakfast burritos are a staple here in New Mexico where Beck & Bulow is based. When I went to India for a month a couple years ago, these burritos were the one thing that I found myself fantasizing about eating when I got home (as much as I love Indian food). You’ll find breakfast burritos in every restaurant, coffee shop, and home kitchen. They’re the perfect portable, satisfying and filling breakfast to get you through your morning. It’s easy to wrap one up to send with a loved one as they leave for work for the day. And yes, they pair perfectly with a good cup of coffee. Hatch green chile can be somewhat difficult to find outside the southwest, but the good news is that we carry pork sausage with green chile already mixed in. These burritos are completely craveable and will become your new favorite for a quick breakfast.
Breakfast Brought To You By The Land Of Enchantment
I kept this recipe relatively simple, and it’s absolutely delicious without anything else added in. I am a big fan of potatoes in breakfast burritos, if you have them on hand and don’t mind the extra bit of time it takes to cook them. Similarly, you can also spend less time cooking the onions for a sharper onion flavor, more crunch and less time spent over the stove. The hatch chiles are spicy without packing a crazy amount of heat. If you like spicy food but don’t usually go for anything too extreme, you’ll probably love this sausage. Whether you’re New Mexico born and raised or have yet to visit the Land of Enchantment, these burritos will have you daydreaming about the sunny skies of the southwest.
Free Range Heritage Pork Raised On The Rio Grande River
Our heritage pork is raised completely free range on a beautiful small farm here in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately one half acre of land. These pigs roam as they please, swimming in the Rio Grande river. The farm is a rehabilitation center for those struggling with drug addictions. The center features agricultural therapy through caring for and interacting with the pigs. These animals get daily interaction, treats and live a completely stress-free life. Living stress-free is important for all animals, but particularly essential for pigs because they are quite sensitive. This pork is USDA Certified and grain fed with a nutritionally balanced diet. The pigs consume a nutritionally ideal ratio of crude protein, crude fiber and plant fiber. They are, like all of our meat, completely hormone free.
