Mission Impossible

I'm not much of a cook, but I love to fill different kinds of breads with various fillings. Mexican food appeals to me on this level. Burritos are quick and delicious, but not always easy. The perfect burrito relies pretty heavily on it's tortilla to keep it from being a salad of sorts. There's no way of telling what kind of tortilla is gonna support your burrito, or which kind is gonna sell it out in favor of feeling your fingers poke through it sensually. The Russian roulette of dinner time meals, nothing pisses me off faster than a weak ass flaky tortilla.

Which brings me to Mission Tortilla, the jerkiest of all store bought Mexican flatbreads. I've tried regular flour and multi grain, and both options have left me with nothing more than a fist full of rice, beans, and tofu chicken. If I wanted my hands covered in food, I would have actually cooked something, Mission Tortilla! I know you think you fooled me good, but the real joke's on you. Your fancy grocery store endcap also conveniently stocked with salsa is not gonna reel me in again. Trader Joe's brand is the same price and 100% better quality. I may have to drive farther to get them, but it is well worth it. You've ruined Cinco De Mayo for the last time. You and I are finished...right after I eat your last few pieces.
