Tofu burritos

   Though I have studied hotel management, we never really cooked Mexican food and I did feel a bit left out from its tastes.Its such a lovely cuisine and I feel it is pretty similar to Indian foods, loads of spices, use of tortillas and loads of beans. The last visit to the super market had me pulling out a packet of tortillas to try make something delicious.So "burritos" it was, with a nice summer salad.My family loved it.We still have 2 more left, would make something with it tomorrow.Tofu is a great way of having quality protein in the diet.
