A soul-food burrito made in Texas has landed on a list of Food Network's "Most-Over-the-Top Burritos in the Country." 

"Over-the-top" is accurate: It comes stuffed with fried or blackened Louisiana catfish, mac 'n cheese and turkey collard greens. This $15 burrito oozes with southern ingredients.

Jessie Washington is the creator of the burrito. He never expected it to be a fan favorite, but since it was created in June 2018, Washington says it's become a staple for his business.

"I never thought that burrito would take me this far -- just because a lot of people do not like for their food to touch," he says. "But I think it's almost a lesson in life: Sometimes you have to take [a] risk. The things you least expect can work out for you. You just have to believe and push it."

Washington is the founder and head chef of Brunchaholics. He sells food at The Shed at the Dallas Farmers Market on the weekends. He loves to create indulgent dishes, he says. Aside from the soul food burrito, Washington sells shrimp and grits, bourbon biscuits, seafood loaded baked potatoes and a blackened chicken club.
