7-Layer Burrito

As a former fast food junkie, there are certainly times I miss some of those foods.  One of them in particular is the 7-layer burrito from Taco Bell.  It's got everything you would want all wrapped up in a tortilla.'s also filled with GMO's and conventional produce.  By making it at home, you can use all organic ingredients as well as fresh, homemade salsa and guacamole.  Not to mention it tastes a MILLION times better!  I didn't list quantities of the ingredients below as you can customize it to your tastes.  So the next time you are craving a drive thru burrito, make this version instead.  You won't be disappointed!


flour tortillas
refried beans (make your own!)
rice (any kind, though we use brown)
finely grated cheddar cheese
romaine, thinly sliced
sour cream


  1. Warm the tortillas and load them up to your liking.  Enjoy!

Weekly Menu

Happy Monday everyone!  We had a wonderful and busy weekend!  My daughter had her first dance recital on Saturday and we spent Father's Day at Disneyland.  Many fun memories made in the past 2 days.  :)  We had a great trip to the farm as summer is in full swing!  We loaded up on romaine, chard, kale, beets, plums, peaches, bell peppers (I picked them from the vine myself!), carrots, corn (tons!), sweet Maui onion, green beans, strawberries, and blueberries.  What a great selection, huh?  With this great variety, we will be enjoying the following this week:

  • 7-Layer Burrito Supreme
    • using the sweet Maui onion, romaine, and tomatoes

  • I will be making a modified Rainbow Smoothie (without spinach) for lunches
    • using the kale, chard, beets, and carrots

  • We will be enjoying the plums, peaches, strawberries, and blueberries for snack and dessert
