Mexi-Thai ‘Burritos’ with Vegetable Fried Rice

Ever since I made Stand ‘n Stuff Refried Bean ‘Burritos’ I’ve been pondering other things I can put into taco- or burrito-like shells. You knew it was only a matter of time before I tried shells with Thai burrito filling. I used Ortega’s Fiesta Flats, which are a hard taco shell ‘boat’, to make these fantastic Mexi-Thai burritos with vegetable fried rice on the side. The taco shells offer the perfect crunchy contrast to the pork burrito filling. These were not only great, they were fun to eat!
