Chorizo Burrito
what a flavor

The burrito consists of a large flour tortilla that wraps diverse types of fillings. Normally the filling is prepared with refried beans, cheese, some stew and many fresh ingredients like lettuce, tomato, avocado and more ingredients that the kids love.

The difference that we have in this burrito is that we are going to use chorizo as stew. With the chorizo a strong, elaborated and spiced flavor is obtained. It is also very nutritious and makes of this burrito a very complete meal.

– In Mexico the burritos are served at any hour of the day. But when they are served as main course they are normally accompanied with rice, pot beans, mixed salad or with your favorite appetizer.

    Make the Burritos

    1. Cut 2 avocados into strips, then reserve.

    The avocado is cut at the end because it oxidizes rapidly.

    1. Heat in the microwave 1 cup of refried beans for approximately 1½ minutes, until they are well heated; then reserve.
    2. Heat on a griddle over medium heat 1 extra-large flour tortilla for about 30 seconds per each side, until it is well heated.
    3. Remove the tortilla from the griddle and smear on the tortilla’s center, with a spoon, some of the refried beans that were heated. Also put on the tortilla the following ingredients in the same order as given:
    • Some Grated Cheese that melts.
    • Some of the Chorizo that was cooked.
    • Some dices of the Tomatoes that were cut.
    • Some strips of the Avocados that were chopped.
    • Some of the Lettuce strips that were chopped.
    • Some Mexican Cream.
    • 1 pinch of Salt.

    The cheese is placed in-between the warm beans and the warm chorizo so the heat of these 2 ingredients will melt the cheese.

    1. Fold the tortilla ends inwards and then roll the chorizo burrito as taco; then serve it.
    2. Repeat the same procedure with other 5 extra-large flour tortillas.
