The Burrito It is a very popular dish on the border between our country and the United States. It is a flour tortilla rolled up and stuffed with different stews with beans and cheese. According to Larousse Cocina, the filling can be made from different stews, from roast meat to Beans.
“It is a typical appetizer from the northern states of the country, also very common in the southern part of the United States, which can be served as the main meal of the noon or lunchaccompanied with beans, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. In each state of the country there are differences in sizes and fillings, “says the publication.
According to Larousse, in Baja California the burrito is prepared in lobster pound, while in Chihuahua a special flour tortilla is prepared for burritos, since it becomes more resistant than the others. Today we share a recipe to prepare some chicken burritos, ideal for breakfast.
- 4 chicken breasts in steak
- 12 flour tortillas for burritos
- ½ onion
- 2 tomato
- 2 serrano green chili
- 200 grams of Oaxaca cheese
- 1½ cups refried beans
- 1 pinch of garlic salt
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 pinch of pepper
Cut the chicken into strips about 2.5 cm wide. Ready the chicken, we reserve it for a moment.
Once the vegetables and chicken meat for the Mexican burritos are ready, we take the onion and place it in a pan with previously heated oil, and let it fry very well over medium heat, add a touch of salt and pepper, and incorporate perfectly to flavor the onion.
When the onion is transparent, add the chili and the red tomato for cooking, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and incorporate everything very well with the help of a wooden stick.
Since the vegetables are well cooked, we add the chicken strips and incorporate them so that they cook perfectly. We reserve our filling for the Mexican chicken burritos.
To start assembling the Mexican-style burrito, we fill the tortilla with the refried beans, spreading them over the entire surface of it.
We take our filling from the Mexican chicken burrito and put some on top of the refried beans, right in the middle.
Once the chicken is ready, we place a little string cheese and roll up the tortilla giving it the shape of a taco. Turn from time to time to cause the cheese to melt and the tortilla to brown.
