This is Jade, and she's a self-proclaimed amateur cook. Her specialties include mac ‘n’ cheese and chocolate chip cookies (when it comes with that ready-made dough, though).

BUT, she worked at Chipotle all through college so her burrito skills are on another level.

And this is Alvin. He's a producer at Tasty who loves food and has been cooking for a while.

"I believe that food is super beautiful. I really focus on making food that I think is presentable as well as delicious."

Meanwhile, given Jade's past with excellent burrito-rolling at Chipotle, it was kind of a no-brainer for her to bring some tortillas as her main ingredient.

"I'm just gonna take whatever is in this fridge, put it in this wrap, and make it taste good." Solid plan.

While raiding Tara's fridge, Jade found onions, cilantro, lemon juice, and salt, which are really the only ingredients Jade ever uses in all of her foods.

She also found some avocados, which gave her the idea of perhaps making a vegetarian burrito.

It was time for the cook-off! Jade ran into problems pretty quickly when she cut the red onions because...they were onions.

Alvin explained the red onions are the most acidic, making all that onion gas go right in the air.

Then she tried Jade's omelet-stuffed burrito and thought it was also really good.

"There's a lot of different flavors. It looks like we have some of my leftover chicken, which has been in there for I'm not really sure how long, but I love the creativity in that."

Although it was a difficult decision, and both "cooks" are Tara's friends...she picked Alvin's omelet on a bed of bacon.

Alvin was awarded a tiny trophy for his victory. You'll get him next time, Jade!
