Firestorm Burritos

"I was at the site ck'ing something else when I found this tempting recipe. Their only comment was "Some nachos on the side & you've got a fiesta!" All of a sudden a picture came to mind of a patio party w/pitchers of margaritas & a big bowl of guacamole plus trays of nachos & these burritos w/sopapillas & honey for dessert. When a recipe can have that effect on a well-adjusted & well-fed "mature" woman, then it deserves to be shared! *Enjoy*"

Ready In:
8 Burritos




  • Mix 1st 9 ingredients & set aside.
  • Prepare bratwurst per pkg directions & set aside, but keep warm.
  • Heat flour tortillas, immediately sprinkle 1 oz of shredded cheese down the center of ea tortilla & top ea tortilla w/a warm brat.
  • Generously spoon the sauce/veggie mixture down ea side of the brat & roll tortilla to enclose the contents.
  • To Serve: If using 10-12 inch tortillas, you will likely have enough tortilla to fold over 1 or both ends & eat by hand. If using 8 in tortillas, just roll it up, plan to use a knife & fork & serve w/any remaining sauce. When you taste the sauce, you will want more of it anyway!
  • NOTE: Time does not include time to prepare bratwurst links per pkg directions. Time did include 15 min for veggie prep & 15 min for assembly.

  1. Yummy!! We eat Brats all of the time and cant seem to get enough of them, just needed something different besides the typical green peppers and onions or on a hot dog bun with condiments etc, etc, etc. Dang this was good!! Cooked about half a vidalia onion and 1 small can green chiles in butter with a pinch of kosher. Mixed lots of sour cream with about 1tsp dried cilantro, dashes upon dashes of salsa chiopotle sauce, 1 slicing tomato, half bunch green onions, and cracked black pepper. Used grilled stadium brats :) rolled in the tortilla with medium cheddar cheese!! soo good!! Both of our first bites were everything BUT the meat cause it slid back in the tortilla.... and those first bites were still good without meat for two carnivores like us! and the rest of it was packed with flavor!! Thanks twissis!!!
  2. I really wanted to make this after seeing it in the Favorites of 2009 Tag game. But I missed the tag, so decided to make it anyway! I love bratwurst, so it's great to find something new to do with it. I had 8 inch tortillas, and even cutting them and using a fork...this was very messy. I tried another way....just sliced the bratwurst, put some of the sauce on top, and ate it that way....much easier and very good! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!
  3. These were really good, 4 stars as written. 5 stars if you chop up the sausage and add avocado. They are very filling, since it is a lot of meat. I added more cilantro and less cheese.
  4. Fantastic! I don't think I will be eating brats any other way now! I used chicken brats, and since I had regular salsa, I added a dash of lime juice to the sauce. Thanks for sharing! Edited to Add: This sauce and pepperjack cheese combo was also really good with turkey dogs, chorizo chicken sausage, and on top of black bean burgers. This recipe is so addictive!
  5. WOW, was this good. The sauce was awesome, I need to figure out a few other things to use it for. I used some hot peppers and a jalapeno-cheese tortillas, almost made it too hot. I highly recommend this recipe, it is a nice twist to the standard brats and buns.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
