IBM's Watson Designed The Worst Burrito I've Ever Had

It’s the worst burrito I’ve ever had.
I don’t know another way to say it. I’m staring at my plate in disbelief. Could burritos be bad? Yes, yes I’d just learned. But that’s not the biggest shocker. The biggest shocker is that this recipe was largely designed by Watson, IBM’s best artificial intelligence—one that had already fed me one of the most uniquely delicious BBQ sauces I’d ever eaten.
I thought through the recipe in my head again. I’d cheated a little, but not enough to ruin a good thing. What went wrong?
The BookChef Watson—IBM’s Jeopardy-robot-gone-algorithmic-recipe engine—has released his first cookbook. It’s a collection of boozy drinks and haute recipes, developed by Watson’s flavor engine, in conjunction with the human chefs from the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE)—a respected NYC school known for its intense six- to 12-month curricula—who helped turn strange ingredient lists into palatable plated dishes.
