I spent the weekend at the beach with seven friends- each with different tastes and eating habits. While everyone seemed content eating hot dogs and cheeseburgers (the simplest food for such a large group of people), I fought against it. As a result, I was tasked with creating a healthier alternative that would be relatively easy to prepare.
Out of this was born the "B³ Beach Burrito". The three b's- brie, basil, and balsamic (a fig flavored balsamic from Carter & Cavero in the Limelight Marketplace). We worked as an assembly line (I discovered you can ask people to do quite a bit more than they would normally be willing to do if they're hungry enough), layering brie on flour tortillas, topping the brie with several slices of grilled chicken (we used chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper), fresh peaches, and torn basil leaves. We drizzled the burritos with fig balsamic and a sprinkling of salt and pepper before wrapping them in tin foil and placing the package on the grill for a few minutes. The B³ Beach Burrito is a little more work than the average hot dog or cheeseburger- but it is also more flavorful and certainly healthier.
