There are few summer cooking pleasures more fun than being outdoors and grilling on the barbecue. Of course most people grill meats and some will even bake casseroles on their barbecue, but the finishing touch to a complete meal prepared on the barbecue is to carry it through to dessert with those same smoky flavors or grill marks.
This is a recipe we created on the spur of the moment on our last camping trip. We picked wild blackberries, but any berry will work.
Berry Chocolate Burritos
Ingredients (per person)
Large flour tortilla
Handful of chocolate chips
Handful of berries
1 pat of butter
A sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice
1 to 2 teaspoons of brown sugar
If it is your first night camping, or you are making these at home, you can serve these burritos with ice cream and whipped cream too, and at home maybe even with a tiny splash of Chambord raspberry liqueur for the grown-ups.
Let the tortillas warm inside some foil, on the side of the barbecue, away from the coals or wood, (low heat) until they are soft and easier to fold. When ready (just a minute or so), add all ingredients inside each tortilla and fold burrito style, making sure that your filling will not ooze out. If you are unsure, you can place the burritos over a sheet of foil to prevent any spills into the flames. Otherwise, you can place the burritos directly on the grill and you'll even get the coveted grill marks. It doesn't take very long at all. Figure about 1-3 minutes depending on the heat of your barbecue. Don't let it burn!
You can also make these in a panini press, an indoor grill or in a skillet for days when you don't want to go to the trouble of firing up the barbecue. To make it a bit more French, use crepes or a baguette. Remember crepes are much thinner than tortillas, so be sure to use foil and not to over cook.
