Two Great Burrito Recipes To Try The Next Time You Cook A Meal

Burritos are one of the most versatile food items around. They are portable, delicious, and easy to make. While most people think that only traditional Mexican ingredients can go inside a burrito, there are some fusion options that mix the best of Mexican cuisine with food from around the world.

Here are a few ways that you can customize your next burrito to make it something new and exciting:

Flour tortillas

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1/3 cup of lard
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 cup of warm water

Mix together dry ingredients. Once they are well combined, cut in lard with a pastry knife. Add water and mix for 1 minute using a dough hook. Divide the dough into 8 balls and flatten them with a rolling pin until they are approximately 12 inches in diameter. Leave them out for 10 minutes to rest, then cook them on each side in a pan on medium heat until cooked through. 

The tortilla is the key ingredient to a great Mexican dish. A bad tortilla will lead to a bad burrito. Conversely, a sublime tortilla will make a sublime burrito. These are simple to make and are definitely worth the effort.

Sticky Fingers Burritos

  • 8 Tortillas
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon water
  • 1 pound of Popcorn chicken or breaded chicken strips, cooked
  • 1 head of Bibb lettuce
  • 4 Roma tomatoes
  • 15 ounces (1 can) of black beans, drained
  • 8 ounces of cooked sweet corn
  • 8 ounces of ranch dressing
  • 4 ounces of cooked bacon, cut into bits

To create the sticky finger sauce., combine the sugar, hot sauce, and water in a pan and cook until all ingredients are well combined and it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool.

Layer the lettuce, corn, bacon, tomatoes, and beans in the center of each tortilla. Add the cooked chicken and drizzle the sticky finger sauce on top. Top with ranch dressing and serve immediately. This is a delightful Tex-Mex dish that combines some of the best flavors from each side of the border.

  • 1 tablespoon of kosher salt
  • 1 head of Bibb lettuce
