Gluten-Free Twisted Burrito Nachos

This dish was a fabulous accident. I wanted to take the idea of a normal burrito, twist it with Asian flavor and serve with a wet sweet soy sauce.

However, the tortilla I  fell apart during assembly and the Twisted Burrito Nachos was born. This dish is perfect for a quick weeknight pick-me-up or for a Saturday night party.  The dish is a little sweet, a little sour and a little spicy. A perfect combination of desire and comfort.
