Carbo Loading on a Burrito Takes It to the Next Level. The El Macho Burrito from El Burrito Express, San Francisco, CA.

And, I do mean this burrito takes carbo loading to the NEXT level.

A few nights ago, there was this contest.  If you named the winner of the Golden State Warriors vs the Utah Jazz basketball game, you would be entered into a drawing to win $10 Burrito Bucks from El Burrito Express.

El Burrito Express on Taraval Street.

I mentioned Utah Jazz and didn't think much of it.

I was later contacted and was told I had won $10 in Burrito Bucks.

Free food!!!  Awesome!!!

I was thinking I'll just show up at the restaurant I had been visiting on and off for ages and pick one of my favorite burritos.

The problem was my usual burrito falls under $10.  I had to come up with something that would bring my order closer to $10.

I thought it was a joke when the menu said there was a burrito over a footlong.

But, this burrito was no joke.  It's called the El Macho Burrito.  And, El Burrito Express has it on their menu.

The nice cashier at the restaurant suggested the El Macho Burrito is a good choice to bring the order close to $10, and so I ordered it.

After I got home, I pulled it out of its bag and was kinda of shocked by its size.

The El Macho Burrito.   My burrito came in closer to 15 inches.

What's in the El Macho Burrito?
  1. 2 giant flour tortillas 
  2. 2 choices of meats
  3. rice
  4. beans
  5. cheese
  6. guacamole
  7. sour cream
  8. tomato

I am pretty sure I will be carbo loaded and then some over for the next several days, which is a good thing as I have the ZombieRunner Bay Trail 1/2 Marathon this weekend.
