Chilacayote burrito wrap

I was eating some burritos, today (baked frozen chimichangas), and decided to wrap the last one in some chilacayote leaves from the garden, as I had done first recently. I first put a stack of leaves in the toaster oven on bake for a few minutes (to make them softer). Then I wrapped the burrito in the leaves, and ate. It was pretty good.

Here are some pictures I took of it partially eaten:

Yes, my chilacayote is getting fairly large leaves already! Yes, the large leaves are edible, just as the smaller ones, although the veins are a little chewier.
