Imagine this: its a sunny day in Chihuahua, Mexico, and youre strolling through a bustling market. The air is filled with the aroma of sizzling meats, fresh cilantro, and spicy chilies. You spot a food stall with a line longer than a Monday morning coffee queue. What are they selling? Burritos, of course!

But enough of my daydreams, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of crafting these delightful wraps at home.

Essential Ingredients

  • Rice Mexican or cilantro-lime rice works wonders.
  • Beans Black beans or pinto beans are classic choices.
  • Protein Chicken, beef, pork, tofu, or even shrimp. The sky’s the limit!
