If you’re eating flour tortillas in Mexico you’re probably in the North, which is where the inspiration for this dish comes from. These one piece meals are actually quite easy to prepare, especially if you substitute canned refried beans for homemade.
Summer is here, V&V Supremo; one of the nation’s oldest family-run Hispanic food business, wants to share some authentic recipes to celebrate ¡a la Mexicana!
4-10 Inch flour tortillas
1 Cup refried beans
15oz. Package chorizo
2 Cups chihuahua cheese, shredded
½ Cup sour cream
½ Head iceberg lettuce, sliced
¾ Cup pico de gallo (see recipe)
- 1. Heat refried beans in saucepan.
- 2. Place one tortilla in a large skillet over medium heat. After 30 seconds, flip tortilla over and heat other side for 30 seconds. (Tortillas should be heated just enough to soften them.)
- 3. On lower half of tortilla, distribute ¼ of the beans, then chihuahua cheese, then chorizo, sour cream, lettuce and finally pico de gallo.
- 4. Fold-up both sides of the tortilla and roll the front towards the back.
- 5. Place burrito seam side down back in skillet over low heat for 2 minutes, and serve.
