Ingredients

  • 1 tortilla burrito sized or 10”+
  • cup Dutch oven carnitas
  • cup cooked rice
  • ¼ cup frozen corn
  • 1 tablespoon salsa
  • 1 tablespoon guacamole

Instructions

  • Cook the frozen corn (or alternate veggies) in a small sautee pan. Warm vegetables through, until warm, about 3-5 minutes. Leave to the side.
  • Warm the tortilla in the microwave in a damp paper towel for 30-seconds.
  • Place all ingredients in the center of the tortilla, layering the rice first as a base, followed by the carnitas and vegetables, finishing with the salsa and guacamole on top.
  • Fold in the short sides of the burrito tortilla.
  • Next, roll the long side (start with the side closest to you), placing it over the ingredients and over the short sides.
  • Finally, roll the burrito over, until you reach seam side down.
  • If you prefer, you can heat the burrito in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. This will crisp the tortilla and sear the sides. Otherwise, eat burrito immediately or place in aluminum foil or airtight container/ziploc.
  • To reheat, remove burrito from any covering or container and wrap in a damp paper towel. Reheat for 60-seconds in microwave. Remove damp paper towel and eat immediately! Alternately, heat burrito in pan on the stove, crisping up sides until warmed through (about 3-minutes).
