I, like Jordan, am from Grand Rapids and moved to Atlanta. When I saw Jordan's last name, I knew I had to try this.
I made it exactly as designed, hoping to recreate the famous B*ltl*n* B*r wet burrito. If you've had it you probably know that you can't find this anywhere else but in West Michigan.
It did not disappoint! Yes, it's the gravy. What a surprise.
To be sure, this recipe is not designed to be a Texas burrito, or a California burrito, and we got a kick out of some of the comments that tried to make this something that it wasn't designed for. This is the West Michigan wet burrito. It is heavy and delicious! This is the best attempt I've run across to duplicate it. Three of us down here in Atlanta, all native West Michigan, gave this 5 stars and two thumbs up.
That being said, we are going to experiment a little going forward. We don't want to change the flavor, it's excellent and as designed! We think there might be a little more beef and a little less bean. This recipe turned out a little less dry than the real thing at B*ltl*n* and so I may try overcooking the beef and leaving the juice out of the diced tomatoes in the beef mixture. Finally, we are going to try putting the lettuce, tomato, and onion in the burrito, putting all of the cheese outside, and then do a low broil instead of baking. We will keep all of you West Michiganders posted.
