The Burrito Recipe

Let’s dive in!

1. Steak Mojo

Things You will Need:

Skirt Steak (you can use any cut of your choice)
Garlic – 4 cloves
Cilantro
Lime juice
Lemon juice
Jalapeno – fresh or can
1/2 cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons White Vinegar
S + P

* It all seems like a lot, but it REALLY isn’t! You’ll see!

*We ended up not using the tomato. Not pictured in this picture is the garlic

To start off, we have to first marinate the meat. We chose to use to skirt steak but you can use anything you would like. The most common are top-round, sirloin, flank etc you commonly used in carne asada.

To marinate the steak, combine garlic, jalapeños, lime juice, lemon juice, cilantro, white vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper in a food processor/chopper. You can also just chop up the ingredients if you don’t have one…but this will take forever!

The Marinade should look like this:


Let the steak marinate in the fridge for 1 hour or more for a stronger flavor.



In the meantime, let’s prepare the rice (Scroll down for recipe)!

1 Hour Later….
Set a pan on high heat and heat the pan to a high heat. Add your steak to a dry pan and begin to fry it up. Cook the steak to your liking. For burritos, we prefer to have the steak medium well.


2. Rice
Things You Will Need:

1 tsp of veg. oil or butter
fresh cilantro
2/3 cup long grain or white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lime for juice

We adapted this recipe from an online source that stated that it was released from Chipotle! So yay, for those of you who love Chipotle’s Rice–let’s celebrate! :)

Heat oil/butter over low heat and stir until melted. Add rice and lime juice. Stir for one minute.


Add water and salt, bring to a full boil. Once boiling, cover, turn down heat so that it simmers and cook until rice is tender ~25 minutes.

Once the rice is done, stir in the fresh cilantro.

DONE! How EASY was THAT?


3. The Accessories!

NOW the burrito is almost done. Go to the grocery store and get some cheese, sour cream, etc. Don’t forget to get your flour tortilla too! Pile on the rice, meat, sauce, cheese, and sour cream. Wrap it up and YESSS.. dig in folks!


NOTE: We also made some corn salsa. If you would like this recipe, email us, and we will gladly share it with you. We wanted to post it up, but unfortunately, no pictures were take of this, so we decided not to post it up.
