Corn husks are the outer covering of an ear of corn. Commercially bought Corn husks are commonly the whole husk and are sun, air or oven dried. For most applications the Corn husks need to be soaked in hot water in order to become pliable. Corn husks are most commonly used to encase foods to be steamed or baked, imparting a very light corn flavor. Corn husks can be used in the presentation of a dish, but are not edible and should be discarded after use. Corn husks are especially popular ingredient in the making of tamales.
Achiote, also known as annatto seed paste and recado rojo is a popular seasoning from the Yucatan and is also used in other parts of Mexico and Central America. Achiote is made of ground annatto seeds blended with other herbs and spices to create a distinctively delicious tangy flavor commonly found in dishes such as Cochinita Pibil. Achiote adds not only great flavors and aromas, but also gives your food a vibrant color.
The consumption of corn smut originated directly from Aztec cuisine. For culinary use, the galls are harvested while still immature — fully mature galls are dry and almost entirely spore-filled. The immature galls, gathered two to three weeks after an ear of corn is infected, still retain moisture and, when cooked, have a flavor described as mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody, and earthy. Flavor compounds include sotolon and vanillin, as well as the sugar glucose.
Masa is Spanish for dough. In the Americas, it is often short for masa de maiz, a maize (corn) dough made from freshly prepared hominy. It is used for making corn tortillas, tamales, pupusas, arepas and many other Latin American dishes. The dried and powdered form is called masa harina.
Living by our motto “everything tastes better in a burrito”
Nicknamed the “Burrito Architect” for his relentless dedication to making out of this world burritos, Dis Burrito’s founder, Michael Fox, is all about crafting burritos with purpose to delight burrito lovers wide and far. His passion for creating the most stellar burrito has been years in the making and COVID-19 gave him the time to finally perfect the art and science. From the size of the burrito, to the layering of ingredients, to the flavors, Fox has mastered how to craft a burrito that you’ll keep craving.
During his time sheltering at home, Fox grew tired of regular old dinners while quarantining. He decided to make breakfast for dinner to shake things up and focus on creating the perfect burrito to share with friends in the post-COVID world. Love is shown through cooking, right?! He knew he wanted green chili incorporated that popped but didn’t overbear, potatoes that weren’t just a filler, eggs that were 100% authentic, a heavy lifting blend of cheeses and the highest quality proteins. Once he found the perfect mix of ingredients and the fluffiest flour tortillas, Dis Burrito was born! We like to consider it one of the silver linings from 2020.
