Pulled Pork Burrito

Pulled Pork Burrito

If there’s a favourite burrito recipe here at Luchito it’s got to be this one! There is something about the combination of slow cooked pork with Cantina Beans and Chipotle Paste that is so delicious and satisfying. It also provides a seriously tasty filling to wrap up into your Burrito Wraps.

To make this Pulled Pork Burrito even more perfect, make a batch of our recipe for Mexican Rice and quick pickled red onions. You can also use white steamed rice but we totally recommend to go the extra mile and make your own Mexican rice at home. It will make this pork burrito recipe even more special.

Pork and bean burritos aren’t for everyone, having said that pulled pork with rice and beans might be! If you love pulled pork, but want something lighter without the wraps, then try our Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl.

How to make it

  1. Place the meat in the slow cooker and all the ingredients listed for pulled pork. There’s no specific order or fancy way about it! Just add all the ingredients into the slow cooker, cover with a lid and let it cook on high mode for 5 to 6 hours.
  2. In the meantime prepare your Mexican Rice and the quick pickled onions by adding the red onion into a small bowl with the lime, vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. Let it rest until the onion softens and gets a lovely pink colour.
  3. When your pork is ready, uncover and shred the tender meat with the help of two forks. Add the Cantina Beans and mix in with the meat, then combine everything, and reserve. (Reheat before serving, you can do this in a baking dish covered with tin foil in the oven at 180°C, for 20 min).
  4. Warm up two Burrito Wraps over a hot pan and once warm place them over your kitchen counter, they should overlap slightly. Then add a good amount of Mexican rice and a good amount of warm pulled pork.
  5. Top your burrito with slices of avocado, spoonfuls of Chipotle Salsa, the red pickled onions and a drizzle of creme fraiche, you can also add grated cheese here. 
  6. Wrap up your burrito tightly and serve whilst it’s still warm. You can reheat your burritos in the oven if necessary. Repeat the same process to make more burritos, and enjoy!

FAQs

Can you make the pulled pork on the same day as the burritos?

Yes, you can, although you'll need to start early in the morning to give the pork enough time to cook. You could also do it the day before, or a few weeks before (and then freeze it until it's needed). If frozen, the best way to defrost it is to do it in the fridge overnight.

What kind of rice to use in a burrito?

You can use whichever rice grain you prefer! However, good old fashioned long grain white rice is your best bet for a traditional Mexican-style burrito. You could also use steamed Basmati, Jasmine or Brown rice.

What to do with a leftover burrito?

You can keep any leftover burritos in the fridge for 4-5 days. To cook them you can just place them in a pan and cook over a medium heat until they are brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted on the inside. Or you can freeze them for about 3 months.
