What to serve with burritos? Not much! This is because they are so filling, and most of the sides to go with burritos would be stuffed inside the burrito itself anyway! Having said that, in this article we will highlight a few side dishes that would make lovely accompaniments.

1. Mexican Rice With Chipotle

This authentic Mexican rice recipe had to be added to this post on what to serve with burritos. It’s a great one to add to a lot of Mexican recipes, has a wonderful flavour and just adds some more pizzazz to your burritos! The Mexican rice is filled with carrots, peas, coriander and a cheeky teaspoon of our Chipotle Paste. This blends in the smoky flavour of chipotle chillies and caramelised onion. For more on what is real Mexican food check out our blog What Is Authentic Mexican Food?

Best Served With: Chilli Con Carne Burrito

2. Mexican Corn (Esquites)

This is a delicious street corn recipe! A truly authentic Mexican street food dish, that would also go well as one of the options to serve with burritos. The secret to this Mexican corn recipe is a dollop of our Chipotle Mayo. It brings it to a whole new level and adds that irresistible dimension of smoky flavour. If corn is your thing, be sure to try our Baked Mexican Elotes recipe which has similar flavours, except that it’s on the cob.

Best Served With: Tortilla Wrap Hack Luchito Style

3. Mexican Salad

Our Mexican salad is a perfect side to eat with burritos in the Spring or Summer. In addition, it’s a beautiful salad to look at, very colourful, and full of healthy goodness. Combine fresh salad leaves with carrots, radishes, spring onions, feta, avocado and our black Cantina Beans. Add to that a bit of crunch with our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips and some chipotle dressing! This results in a fun texture with tons of flavour.

4. Mexican Coleslaw

Is there anything a side of delicious Mexican coleslaw can’t improve? Add a generous amount of this crisp cabbage Mexican slaw recipe to your plate, along with your burrito, and you’re on to a winner.  Much more flavourful than traditional coleslaw, it’s taken up a notch with a spicy dressing made with our Chipotle Mayo and zingy lime.

Best Served With: Black Bean Burrito

5. Pico De Gallo

Serve our pico de gallo recipe along with your burritos. It’s one of the easiest and freshest salsas there is and you can serve it with or on just about anything. We have combined fresh tomatoes, raw onion, chilli, lime juice, coriander and our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix to make this very simple dish. The more chilli you add, the spicer it is!

Best Served With: Chicken Burrito

6. Guacamole and Chips

Is a Mexican meal even complete without some freshly made guacamole and some Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips?! Our homemade guacamole recipe couldn’t be easier with the fresh flavour coming from a dollop of our Tomatillo Salsa. As far as what to serve with burritos goes, this is a no-brainer.

7. Mexican Black Beans

Mexican black beans are a classic to serve with burritos. Our lovely Cantina Beans (authentic black beans with their juices) are waiting for you to warm up and dollop inside your burritos, or just have on the side. If it’s the latter, you can garnish them with some finely chopped onion, tomatoes, chillies, coriander, some scoops of avocado and dollops of creme fraiche! Delicious!

Best Served With: Breakfast Burrito

8. Nachos

If you are going large, then this chicken nachos recipe is the best dish to serve with burritos and perfect for sharing (if you’re willing to!). It’s always nice to have something to nibble at on the side! This recipe smothers our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips in our Homemade Guacamole, Chipotle Salsa, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Super easy to make, and the results have you wanting to make this again and again. Bored of chicken? Take a look at our Nachos Recipes for more inspiration.

Best Served With: Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl
