How To Make The Best Burritos

This portable option typically includes all the elements of a meal wrapped in a tortilla. The enclosed contents are typically made up of a type of meat, beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, cheese, lettuce and sour cream. Like sandwiches, burritos can greatly range in flavors and styles. Some burritos can contain fresh vegetables, pico de gallo and black beans while others are served piping hot with melted cheese, refried beans, steak or smothered in a red chili sauce. Burritos are easy to make at home and can be served alongside beans and rice or as a meal unto themselves. How you build your burrito is up to you, making this a perfect option for families with picky eaters. It is easy to customize a burrito and add or subtract ingredients wherever necessary. In this video, Chef Michael provides an online cooking lesson for a hearty, Tex-Mex burrito. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
