Ingredients

  • 5 Large Flour Tortillas
  • 16 oz Carne Asada cut into small pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups Black Beans
  • 2 1/2 cups Rice

For the Guajillo Salsa

  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 1/4 Onion (white)
  • 2 cloves garlic (large)
  • 2 Guajillo Peppers (deseeded and boiled until soft)
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika

Garnishes

  • Pico de Gallo
  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole
  • Lettuce
  • Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Guajillo Salsa (From Recipe Above)

Instructions

  • Heat the tortillas in the microwave or in a comal. 
  • Add the main ingredients (carne asada, beans, and rice) in the middle of the large tortilla, one at time. If you want, you can add the guajillo salsa and cheese at this point or you can smother the burrito at the end. Feel free to include the pico de gallo inside as well if you would like. 
  • Mix the ingredients up a little bit with a fork or spoon so that there is an even distribution of ingredients throughout. 
  • Fold the ends of the burrito in, and then carefully roll the burrito up, putting the seam on the bottom. 
  • If you are smothering you burrito, add it to an oven-safe dish, seam down and smother with the guajillo salsa and the cheese. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. In the alternative, you can just put it under the broiler on high for about 2-3 minutes. 

For the Guajillo Salsa

  • Roast the tomatoes, onions, and garlic together on a frying pan until slightly browned. 
  • Put the tomatoes, onions, and garlic into a blender with the boiled guajillo peppers, the spices, the chicken stock, and the whipping cream and blend until smooth.
