How To Make Burritos

Home | Blog | Cooking

Finally! How To Make Burritos! This is something you should definitely hunker down and learn to master. It’s fun, versatile (for any meal of the day and uses all sorts of ingredients),  and a great thing for the kids to get involved with. They also happen to be extremely tasty! In this blog we will tell you everything you’ve always wanted to know about making burritos.

The main thing to keep in mind when it comes to making burritos is to add the right amount of filling so you are able to wrap it tightly and keep everything inside or at least most of it , of course it gets messy once you begin eating but that’s all part of the burrito experience !

How To Make and Wrap A Burrito

We have narrowed down how to achieve the perfect burrito to the following  steps, (check pictures for reference):

  1.  Warm the Gran Luchito Burrito Wrap a few seconds on a hot pan on each side until it’s warm and soft.  
  2. Lay the warm tortilla over a cutting board,  add a spoonful of your main filling could be chicken, meat or beans  (Make sure not to add too much filling, you want to be able to fold it).
  3. Add any extra garnishes you may like on top such as: pico de gallo, guacamole, radishes, grated cheese, creme fraiche, salsa, or fired roasted serranos,  etc. 
  4. Fold the edges from each side (as seen in picture) just enough to avoid the filling from coming out through the edges.
  5. Then start wrapping your burrito tightly from bottom to top making sure you keep the side edges tucked in.
  6. Cut with a knife in half and enjoy!

How To Reheat A Burrito?

Reheating a burrito is not a problem at all. We would recommend using an oven though instead of a microwave, as you will need tin foil to cover it which acts as a thermal layer. Here is how:

  1. Take your burrito out of the refrigerator and loosely wrap it in aluminium foil.
  2. Place the wrapped burrito in the oven on a low heat for about 30 minutes.
  3. Use oven mitts to take it out of the oven, unwrap the foil and enjoy!
