Tips to Make the Best Burrito
A burrito is a portable hunk of tantalizing goodness. Although many people enjoy meaty burritos, we are also going to show you some vegan and fruity recipes that also deserve mention. There are light burritos for the carb conscious and heavy ones for those who like to work on a full stomach.

Prepare your burritos when you have free time over the weekend, wrap each individually, and throw them in your freezer.

Like pizza toppings, burrito stuffings are versatile and can be had in many different combinations. It all depends on your taste and creativity. Today we are going to look at some breakfast burrito recipes that should get you all interested in this fun-packed meal.
Generally, to prepare a burrito, you need a tortilla and your choice stuffings;
- Buy your tortilla of choice at the local grocery store
- Make sure to pick one that is adequately sized to hold your stuffing
- Steam the tortilla to make it flexible. You may also zap it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
- Place the tortilla over an aluminum foil piece
- Make a choice spread over the flexible tortilla, say sour cream
- Layer on your stuffing ingredients one by one
- Roll up the tortilla to wrap your stuffing. Make sure to secure the edges so the stuffing doesn’t fall out
- Finish the burrito by wrapping aluminum foil over the entire thing. The foil is peeled out as you eat.
- If necessary, throw the burrito in the oven according to the recipes provided
- Enjoy the tortilla fresh off the oven or toss in the freezer for up to a month
- Throw a burrito into the microwave for 2 minutes from the freezer
While burritos are generally thought of as a lunch, snack or dinner…they make amazing breakfasts even if you are not on the go!
