Grilled Hawaiian Pizza Burritos

Oh gosh.


Looks like a Tasmanian devil just whizzed through that mother, but it’s okay. I’m still a good person.

Okay, so I read somewhere that the babies can hear me now. They can like, actually hear my voice. Through all that fluid, sac city, bubbles and goo, they can hear me. Yeah, I’m pretty sure all they’ve heard is, “omg. OMG. OMGGGGGGGG” over and over and over. Well, that and some Wilson Phillips jams, amiright.

But knowing this now, I’ve decided to try to talk TO them. And sing TO them. And nag TO Aaron, but that’s neither here nor there.

When I was making these here pizza burrito thingies, this is all they heard:

“Oooooo little bebes, we’re gonna get this chicken all seared up niiiiiiicely, just like you guys! WAIT, not that I’m searing you. But I’m cooking you. Or baking you. Sh%t. I mean SHOOT! Sorry. Anyway, now we’re slicing up the pretty chicken. Just like I want to slice your little faces with my tongue. WAIT, NO. I mean. Oh gawd.”

“Okay this is the yummy part! Because you’re inside me I had to crisp up my Canadian bacon because I don’t think I can have it cold. Isn’t that so interesting? I hope you guys aren’t cold in there. Do I have the temperature right for you? Need a blankie? Tell you what, just cuddle up against those placentas, I’m sure they’re cozy. Okay this is weird.”

“Okay squirts, now comes the cheese! Just so you know, your dad hates cheese. You need to come to terms with this right now. Matter of fact, do NOT and I repeat NOT take after him in this department, ‘mkay? You are totally welcome to inherit his crisp blue eyes, smooth olive skin and hair thick as a maple syrup meadow, but if you decide you hate cheese I WILL QUIT THIS FAMILY FOR LIFE. p.s. I love you?”

. . . They didn’t kick the rest of the night.


Pizza sauce, green bells, seared chicken, Canadian bacon, pineapple and gooey cheese. All wrapped up and grilled just like a swaddled little baby.

Err . . .  you know what I mean.



Grilled Hawaiian Pizza Burritos:

What it took for 2 burritos:

* 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
* 2 tsp dried thyme
* 2 tsp dried oregano
* 2 large flour tortillas
* (about) 1/2 cup pizza sauce
* 1 (3.5 oz) package canadian bacon (crisped up in a skillet if you prefer)
* 1 (8 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
* 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into a small dice
* 1 small jalapeno pepper, sliced (and seeded for less heat)
* 1 cup shredded mozzarella (or about 5 string cheeses, cut into small chunks)
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add the chicken. Season with salt, pepper, half the thyme and oregano. Cover and sear 5 minutes. Flip and sear (and season) for another 5 minutes. Tent and rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice.

Lay two tortillas flat on a work surface. Evenly spoon the pizza sauce over each tortilla. Top with chicken, Canadian bacon, peppers, pineapple and cheese. You can always drizzle a little pizza more sauce on top. Kinda wish I had. Then just roll the burritos up (ends in first to tuck them in) and place on a hot grill pan, seam side down. Place something heavy on top and grill for about 3 minutes. Flip and grill another 3 minutes, or until you see nice grill marks all over. I grilled the sides too, to be cute. Was it cute? Never mind.

Slice and serve!

*You can always make these into smaller burritos by using smaller tortillas and getting more mileage with your fillings. Leave out the hot peppers for the kiddies. Add more cheese. You know the drill.

*Serve with more warmed pizza sauce on the side? Oh dude yes.

    I love anything with pineapple and back bacon (that's what we in Canada call Canadian bacon )
  23. DessertForTwo September 12, 2013 at 7:23 am #
    haha! Your babies will like cheese, trust me. They're coming out of you, therefore, they will be like you. I'm so happy the world is going to have two people that are half-you. Is the world ready? PS I've been grilling burritos like a crazy woman these days. Crunchy burrito, creamy filling? SO good.
  24. Katie September 12, 2013 at 3:43 pm #
    the pineapple in here is tossing my taste buds into crazy are a pregnant genius.
  25. Cassie | Bake Your Day September 12, 2013 at 6:19 pm #
    If the babies can hear you now, I hope they are taking notes so that they come out with your humor. These are genius!
  26. Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective September 12, 2013 at 7:33 pm #
    Love these!! And your little babies are going to have the best mommy ever! :)
  27. Aggie September 13, 2013 at 4:49 am #
    LOL!!! You are such a trip, those babies are going to come out LAUGHING! These are genius!! I had a major Hawaiian pizza craving for a minute earlier this pregnancy. I wish I had these then!!
  28. Amanda Mohr September 13, 2013 at 11:40 am #
    These look awesome!! I will have to give these a try soon. If I were you I would also be praying for those babies to have Aaron's eyes...but then you might NEVER be able to tell them NO! That might be a problem!
  29. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious September 15, 2013 at 2:15 am #
    Oh Bev, I love your baby talk! And this burrito! I love that it is packed with all sorts of goodness - GET IN MAH BELLY!

  33. Melissa @ Bless this Mess September 18, 2013 at 12:05 pm #
    Mmmmm. I need your grill pan! It's so pretty, but not quiet as pretty as those burritos!
  34. Kalliste September 21, 2013 at 7:24 am #
    Made these tonight! Didn't have a grill pan but turned out great anyway. I added the extra sauce, it was a bit much really, next time I won't. Thanks for the idea! :)
  35. Bridgite Lewis August 24, 2015 at 3:59 am #
    Very good idea. Congratulations! I'll try that now!
  36. Hollis Ramsey April 14, 2019 at 7:05 am #
    uh-huh, yeah! this calls for Spam with Bacon (sliced, grilled, then diced), plenty of grated Mozzarella + Sharp Cheddar (or Monterey/Pepper Jack?), grilled/diced jalapeno + poblano, chopped green onions (not grilled; these should be cold + crisp), lots of cilantro (parsley, too?), sour cream + celery and caraway seeds (?) + cilantro + lime zest/juice, and then all wrapped up and grilled again, for good measure, on my new reversible stovetop grill/griddle! i might rub some bacon grease or schmaltz or duck fat on the burrito before the final grilling.

      i forgot about the pico de gallo and chunky guacamole -- they'll be served on the side, along with lime wedges and pickled jalapeno slices.
