Pretty good! While I really enjoyed this, I wish I would have viewed the "how to" video first. The video instructions do not even come CLOSE to SHACKL's instructions. The layering order and layering quantities of each ingredient are completely different. I was disappointed that I was short on shrimp and a TON of rice, beans and chipotle sauce left over. I thought I must have done something wrong, so I decided to watch the video. After doing so, it all made sense (but I shouldn't have to watch a video first in order to find this out, IMHO). You are to SMEAR 1/4 c. of beans over your warmed tortilla FIRST, then top that with 1/2 c. of cheese (not 1/4 as directed), 1/4 c. of shrimp (not 1/2 c.), a 1/4 cup of rice and a dollop of sauce. There is no mention of adding salsa to the burrito itself. I added salsa to mine and wish I wouldn't have.... Reserve your salsa for the side! If you use fresh salsa as I did, It will make your burrito watery and M-E-S-S-Y! If you must add salsa to your burrito, strain it very well! Other than this mishap, I REALLY enjoyed these and found the combination of flavors to be SPOT on. My hubs even commented that the rice would be fantastic on its own and I thought the chipotle spread was absolutely superb, albeit a tad bland (I had to add a touch more chipotle to mine). Chips and guacamole rounded out our casual meal. All in all, these are darned good - just watch the video first lol! Thanks for sharing your unique recipe, SHACKL! :-)
