Homer: Um, I’m looking for something in an after-dinner burrito.
Apu: You’ll have it in 45 seconds, sir.

The Simpsons | Season 9 - Episode 17

When it comes to Simpsons recipes, sometimes the joke is more in the name than in the food itself. I mean, Strawberrito is a pretty clever mix of strawberry and burrito. That’s the joke. I’m sure the writers never would have imagined that some weirdo with a blog would end up making this recipe, but here we are.


  • Flour Tortilla
  • Strawberries
  • Strawberry Compote (homemade)
  • Cream Cheese


Pre-heat over to 350F. Place tortilla on a flat surface and spread on cream cheese. Next add sliced strawberries, covering with strawberry compote. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Looking at naughty pens while you wait is optional, but fun!


I know that in the episode Apu microwaves the Strawberrito for Homer. I think it is reasonable to assume that the burrito would have been pre-baked and then ready for a quick heat up. No way would this burrito have been able to withstand a microwave off the bat, it would have just melted into a horrible mess of tortilla and strawberry.

That being said, this was surprisingly tasty. Apparently “dessert burritos” are a thing so I guess my creation isn’t particularly unique in that regard. Still, I would make this again as a horribly unhealthy breakfast option.

I’m 99% sure I had the same Ikea dishes as you. Then my GF “Upgraded” mine.

That’s all. Keep up the good work.


They are in fact from Ikea…I mean Shøp. I also purchased a Krünk pencil holder because, you know, I hate the Pöpli kids so much.
