Cooking burritos over a campfire is a fun way to enjoy a meal together.  Your family and guests get to be involved in preparing the food.  Start by building a campfire and then let it burn down for about an hour so you get a nice coal base.  While the fire is burning you can prepare your favorite burrito fillings and set them up buffet-style.  Set out corn, flour, whole-wheat, or sprouted tortillas and sheets of foil.  Everyone can pick and choose their favorites and build their own custom burrito.  When the fire is ready, set a cooking grate over the coals and place foil-wrapped burritos on the grate.  You can use anything for fillings, steak, chicken, seafood, vegetables etc.  Here are a few ideas:

Take a couple of ripe avocados, add some fresh garlic, salt, lime juice
and mash it up to make a simple guacamole.
Add some onions, cilantro, tomatoes and jalapenos if you wish.

Saute some onions, jalapenos, garlic and cumin in a little olive oil.

Add a can of black beans and warm.

Chop up some tomatoes, onions, garlic and cilantro.
Add a little olive oil, lemon juice and salt to make a fresh salsa.

Saute some onions and peppers.

Grill a few chicken breasts and shred.

The burrito buffet.
Brown rice, black beans, chicken breast, grilled peppers and onions, fresh salsa,
guacamole, a variety of cheeses, sour cream,
green salsa, lettuce, whole wheat tortillas.

Fill tortilla with desired fillings.

Fold the top and bottom towards the center.

Roll up and wrap in foil.
You can use a sharpie to write names on the burritos.

Place on a cooking grate over a hot fire.
Cooking time will vary depending on how hot your fire is
and how close the burritos are to the heat.
Just open the foil and check on them.
