Beef Burrito


The burrito is a dish originally from the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. This recipe consists of a large wheat flour tortilla that wraps different types of filling. These type of tacos are very famous in Northern Mexico. Unfortunately, this recipe has become a prey of many variations, mainly Tex-Mex. To such a degree that the burritos that are served in some restaurants are no longer burritos

– Although you will not have that problem here because we are going to teach you to make authentic Mexican burritos.

The beauty of the burritos is that they can be filled with almost any combination of ingredients that you can imagine. The vast majority of the times they have refried beans as base. Within the filling also some fresh ingredients are added like tomato, avocado, onion, etc.



Now going into our recipe, this burrito has refried beans mixed with ground beef. Besides cheese, tomato, lettuce and more ingredients are added to this filling that give a fresh, delicious and super nutritious touch.

The burritos can be served at any hour of the day for breakfast, as appetizers or as main course. If you serve them as main course they can be accompanied with a mixed salad, Mexican rice and pot beans.
