I have to admit something to you. I have been binge watching the Twilight movies lately like a teenage fangirl. Like every time they’re on TV, I turn them on. Funny since the books didn’t hold my interest! At all! To be honest, I couldn’t get passed the second chapter of the first book. It was just so bad!
Then, the movies came out. I rolled my eyes at them at first. I mean, sparkly vampires? Edward Cullen was definitely no Lestat! But after giving them a chance, I quickly became hooked. I even managed to see Breaking Dawn in the theater.
My love of vampire TV and movies probably started with Interview with the Vampire and continued with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I tuned into Buffy every week and watched the Angel spin-off. There are so many other great vampire shows out there and I definitely need to catch up!
If there’s one thing I love as much as vampire TV and movies, it’s Mexican food! You might remember the Halloween Boo-rito Bake I made a couple years ago. It was a delicious and easy dish to make for Halloween night! So I decided to make a vampire-themed burrito for Halloween this year.
We always seem to have London broil in our house. One London broil can be split to make two meals for us. It’s a pretty cheap cut of beef that works well in a variety of dishes. Like steak burritos! Cut into thin slices, London broil made a perfect base for this recipe!
I made London broil for dinner the other night and used the leftovers to make these burritos. The London broil was lightly seasoned. I added minced garlic and lime juice to brighten up the flavor. Then, I topped my burritos with homemade pico de gallo and shredded Asiago cheese.
The burrito was folded up in a tortilla with edges cut to resemble bat wings. These vampire burritos weren’t complete without black olive eyes and Asiago fangs dripping with blood – or, in this case, hot sauce!
