Before I get to that, however, please allow me to regale you with my tales of terror from the weekend before last, where I was trying (to no avail) to sign up for the second part of my boards licensing exams to become a physician. :'[

Level 2 has two parts to it. CK (Clinical Knowledge) is $580, and PE (Physical Examination), where they force you to fly all the way out to Philly to take the test, is $1290. My credit limit was apparently freakishly low, so because I spotted my friend on his test because he needed to wait for reimbursements in order to pay for it…and in so doing, I couldn’t pay for the second part of my test.

As I was silently freaking out (whilst watching available test dates disappearing by the day), I called my bank to see if they’d increase my credit limit. Here’s how you should never speak to your bank!

BoA: What’s your annual income?
F: Um, probably zero? Unless you count imaginary government money. I’m on student loans.
BoA: Do you have any sort of part-time job or anything?
F: I’m in medical school, so they don’t really let us work.
BoA: Are you a freshman, sophomore, junior…?
F: It’s my third year.
BoA: Are you self-employed?
F: Um. As a full-time student?
BoA: Is there any side income that you bring in with your hobbies?
F: Believe me, I really wish I did.
BoA: So you would be an investment.
F: Yes, yes I would be.

They extended it instantly, so I guess I’ve got that going for me. On to the food!

I’ve never actually rolled a burrito in my life until now. (I always figured I’d have a hard time because I would want to over-stuff it, so meh.) Hope you enjoy these though! 😀 Recipe adapted from here!

If you don’t feel like eating it in burrito form, this could just as easily be turned it into a sandwich (or a salad if you omit the tortilla!).

I’m sorry that the chicken’s pretty much the same color as the tortilla. ._.

Additional Notes

I've tried Tapatio & Sriracha thus far and it was like having a delicious fire in my mouth. <3

Not too shabby for my first attempt, right? Not too shabby for my first attempt, right?[/caption]

…and while we’re at it, here’s Princess Muffin with the new jacket I got her. (I want to take her on walks outside!) She is about 100% done with having me as her owner/life as a purrito.

      Thank you! I feel ya on the rolling-of-burritos. I had to severely under-stuff mine to get it to look like that. 😡

  2. Laurie

    OH YUM! Thanks for making my tummy growl!!! XOXO Laurie~*

    1. Farrah

      haha, glad you like it! 😛 Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Susie @ SuzLyfe

    You absolutely are an investment! And one that will pay off in spades, though it may take a few years 😀

      haha, yes indeed! We’ll see how long it takes me to climb outta debt! 😛

  4. Elsie @ Sharing Healthiness

    Was it a good burrito if you didn’t find it hard to roll it?!! Stuff it big and then let the juices drop out that is how it should be done… 😉 Have a great weekend! xx

    1. Farrah

      hahaha, I agree with you! The under-stuffing was just for the sake of the picture. You better believe I stuffed it up afterward! ;P

  5. Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine

    I totally want to make a burrito 😉

      They are wonderfulllll. <3

  6. Sonali- The Foodie Physician

    I’m so glad it all worked out with the bank- that sounds really stressful! Awesome looking burrito! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

    1. Farrah

      Thank you! I was very silently freaking out, hahaha. I’m super glad it worked out too! :] Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  7. Cassandra @PoweredByBling

    We eat food burrito-style in this house quite frequently. Burritos are so versatile and you can totally throw some of the amazing leftovers we all have in our refrigerators in there.

    1. Farrah

      Agreed! 😀 I love that they’re so versatile! My next step is making the tortillas from scratch, but as of yet…I haven’t convinced myself to do it, haha.

  8. Olivia Schwab

    These look great!! I’m going to try this sometime!

  9. Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes

    This looks amazing….i absolutely love burritos! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Farrah

      Thanks! They’re definitely one of my favorites too! :]

  10. Jess @hellotofit

    I love burritos, and your recipe looks awesome!! Can’t go wrong if there’s avocado in it 😉 Happy Friday!

    1. Farrah

      My thoughts exactly! 😀 I came across a quote the other day that said, “I just want to make enough money to never have to think twice about adding guacamole again.” (So, so true. <3 )

  11. Rachel G

    oh my goodness my mouth is watering. Cheese, avocados, and tortillas are pretty much the ‘food groups’ I miss the most! 🙂 And your conversation with the bank made me laugh. I know you are a very worthwhile investment for them! I had the hardest time even getting approved for a credit card because I didn’t think to apply for one until I was no longer in college, so I missed out on the credit cards for college students. Banks apparently don’t think very highly of offering credit to a B.A. who has never had any debt/credit history and has no actual job (at the time–I didn’t get a job after college because we were planning on moving). Finally we found one that would give me a credit card based on Angel’s history!

    1. Farrah

      I think I’m way too honest for my own good, haha. When I told my friend about that conversation, she told me to just let her talk to them for me from now on. 😡 When I was fully awake later and thought about what I’d said, I gotta say–someone up there is definitely watching over me, haha. ._.

      Oh gosh, I’m so sorry! That definitely makes it eons harder. :[! Most of my jobs in undergrad were paid under the table (hooray for self employment!), but I got one in the beginning just to attempt to build my credit. I’m super glad you managed to find one! Yay for Angel! 😀

  12. jess meddows

    Oh Farrah, I laughed so hard at this conversation! Even funnier that they just were all “Sweet, totally done.” I love it! It’s a little frustrating that you get a credit card more easily when you OWE money than when you owe nothing, so I’m glad it went smoothly. 🙂

    Chicken burritos are one of my husband’s absolutely favourite things. Mexican meals are a big hit in our house because it’s so easy to make vegan ones for me, and his meaty ones at the same time.

    1. Farrah

      It honestly makes no sense at all (not that I’m complaining, because I definitely needed it for that lovely transaction). My theory is that they’d get to capitalize on all my future paychecks if I ended up in credit card debt or some such monstrosity. :O

      <3! Burritos are definitely one of my favorite meals because they're just so darn versatile. (I probably use the word "burrito" very loosely, haha. If I throw anything into a wrap and roll it up, it's basically a burrito to me. 😡

  13. GiselleR @ Diary of an ExSloth

    I haven’t made burritos in a while but I love making them. I totally have the overstuffing problem though so I feel ya there
    p.s. Good luck on your boards!

    1. Farrah

      haha, in my opinion, there’s no better way to eat a burrito than to have it overstuffed! 😛

      Thank you! <3 I hope it goes well!

  14. Esther

    Wowza! Glad you were able to get the $ for your test!!! EEk I can imagine how challenging that can be at times.

    And these look amazing!! Love chicken and avocado ANYTHING!!! 🙂


    1. Farrah

      I hated watching all the exam dates filling up over the weekend. ;_; Twas a nerve-wracking and terrifying time, but I’m glad it got cleared up!

      Thank you! <3 I'm a firm believer that you can't go wrong when you have those two in combination! 😛

  15. Montana @ Pretty Lil Mudder

    I’m FINALLY linking up with you guys again! Super excited! So I totally love you because that was an awesome conversation with your bank- and apparently they liked you too and I’m glad it all worked out. Also your cat is adorable.

    These burriots look amazing- I wonder how I would do rolling a burrito? I’m sure it would fall apart haha! My recipe really isn’t hot or spicy but I was so excited that I actually made something I had to link up anyway 😉

    1. Farrah

      I just unearthed this comment! :O!! My apologies on that–a super crazy-late thanks for linking up with us! I’ve missed your posts!
