burrito passion/burrito controversy??

wow..you just never know when your comments/questions/opinions will start a firestorm!
so... last week i posted a poll on this blog asking people to vote for their favorite burrito filling. why? who knows? i saw this poll on a website and thought it was a funny question. i did this without a lot of thought and..even though i am from southern california and grew up eating loads of really good, amazing mexican food...did not put too much thought into listing the filling choices. well readers..you guys are really passionate about your food!! i started getting email after email from people telling me that i forgot their favorite filling and how disappointed they were that they could not vote! one person asked why i missed carne asada..another about the missing chile verde. tons of you commented that forgetting breakfast burritos was a crime. some just got picky.."you said bean and cheese, but i only like black beans, not pinto and you did not give me a choice" or "you forgot bean and rice, i do not eat cheese" i discussed this poll on a maryjanes farm forum..got the same type of comments... whoa...people, please forgive me...i will make amends.

now, since a few of you did vote, i cannot add additional choices. and..since this was a poll not a blog post...you could not leave your comments for others to read..hence the many, many emails....ok..stop the email barrage. i am writing this post to give everyone a chance to comment on the blog about your favorite fillings. i would love to have you share your favorite recipes too...leave them in the comments section and i will pick some to feature on the blog..and give you the proper "burrito expert" recognition. and one more thing...let's keep the poll going..just vote for your favorite of the choices listed....
best,

I really do love breakfast burritos. I make mine with scrambled eggs, bacon, refried beans, salsa and cheese.

We have a restaurant near us called Blue Coast Burrito. It is similar to Subway but with burritos and tacos instead. I always get the Veggie. This is what I get: black beans, mushrooms, grilled onion and pepper, pico, cheese,pineapple salsa, cucumber, LOTS of cilantro ans sour cream! Yum! I am hungry just thinking about it!

I am one of the people who would have voted for pork chile verde. MY favorite!! I did not email you but it sounds like others felt the same way. Do you have a recipe for chile verde? I only order it when we go out to eat.

Actually I love bean and cheese and rice with lots of lettuce, onions and salsa. No recipe.

Here in Asheboro, NC we have a locally owned restaurant called Burrito Brothers.

All their food is made fresh and is so incredibly delicious!

After moving away from So. Cal. in 1999, thought I'd never be able to buy refried beans or flour tortias again.

Come to find out, NC has had one of the largest influxes of Mexicans in the US. Mostly due to sweet potato farming. Who'd have thunk??

I love Mexican food. ALL of it.

My favorite burrito stuffins include beans, lettuce, chicken, all kinds of peppers and lotsa hot sauce!

I had the best burrito last night at a local restaurant. It was grilled lobster with black beans. Not my usual bean and cheese, and it was really, really good!

I have to add a vote for breakfast burritos. If they were listed on your poll they would win for sure!

Just sign me up for plain bean and cheese. I eat a few every week with chips and salsa a must.

Why did you list gound beef as a choice? Who eats ground beef in burritos?
