There is nothing like sinking your teeth into the perfect burrito. Finding that perfect meal can be a challenge; which leaves many people wondering how they can create it for themselves. As all of us are finding more time to spend in our home, social distancing, more and more people may be finding themselves in the kitchen to try and create some of their favorite dishes in their home, under quarantine. Eddie’s Mexican Restaurant is here to explain all the components you need to create your own perfect burrito.
Best Tortillas for Burritos
If you know Mexican food, you know that the tortilla is something you want to get right. Not all tortillas are created equal either. Finding the perfect tortilla is the first step in creating an unforgettable burrito. If you are feeling ambitious and have a tortilla press, you can attempt to make it on your own.
What Kind of Rice for Burritos? Seasoned
The next step in a fantastic burrito is the rice. You don’t want to have just bland rice in your burrito. You want your rice to give you a pop of flavor. Many people use lime and cilantro to give their rice some seasoning. Others will find their favorite Spanish rice to give their Mexican dish that flare they are looking for.
Black, Pinto or Refried Beans
There are a few different kinds of beans that are usually used in creating a burrito. Many people will choose either black beans or pinto beans for their Mexican cuisine. Black bean are a good choice if you are looking for something more healthy, but many people like refried and pinto to give their burrito flavor. You may want to prepare your beans with some broth and salt so they aren’t bland.
Restaurant Style Meat & Veggies
For those that are looking for a veggie burrito, you can sauté your favorite peppers and onions for added flavor in the burrito. Many people enjoy having different types of meat in their dish. Some of the most common meats used in Mexican dishes include:
– Carne Asada/Steak
– Al Pastor/Pork
– Carnitas/Slow Braised Pork
Salsa in a Burrito?
No burrito is complete without some homemade salsa to top things off. For an authentic Mexican dish, you would use fresh Pico de Gallo but there are also many different fresh salsa recipes that can add flavor as well as spice as they combine tomatoes, onions and peppers for that perfect flavor.
Cheese in Burrito
Before you roll that burrito up, don’t forget to add some cheese in there to melt as your burrito is cooked to perfection. Cheese makes everything better.
