Howdy y’all, and thanks for stopping by the website! You’re in for an extra special treat today, because I’ve pulled out all of the stops and am going to share how to make the ultimate beef and bean burrito. This isn’t the type of recipe you can find anywhere else, folks.
I’ve started with the basics, added more flavor at every single level, and doubled the size of this thing from what you expect from a burrito. I’m getting awfully hungry, so lets get on with it!
You’re going to want to make this sauce at least 30 minutes ahead of time, so it can set up in the ice box. You can find the exact measurements below but to keep it simple, use 1 part sour cream, 1 part Duke’s Mayonnaise, and 1 part of your favorite Salsa (Of course I’m using my Kent Rollins’ Salsa you can buy right here on the website), and a squeeze of lime.
Tip: Press down and roll the lime around a little bit and you’ll get more juice from a squeeze.
Mix well and set in the ice box.
Tip: You can use this sauce as a crema for tacos, a sandwich spread, or as a dip. Make extra!
On the stove, dice four slices of bacon up and throw them in the pre-heated, empty bean pot. Bacon? Yeah, I said this is the ultimate burrito, didn’t I?
Rinse the black beans three or four times and throw them on in the pot with the bacon. Add the chicken broth & diced onion. Why didn’t I mix this in to the meat? The onions and the bacon are going to transform these beans with so much flavor that you won’t be able to tell even a little bit that they came from a can. Add the butter here, so the flavor will be even richer.
Once the mixture comes to a simmer, lets add some seasoning. Dice up the roasted serrano pepper and add to the beans. Next, the taco seasoning. You know I’ll be using my own Taco Seasoning, but if yours hasn’t arrived yet, your previous favorite will do. Finally, add some cumin and fresh oregano, and then set aside to simmer.
In a cast iron skillet, add the 80/20 Certified Angus beef and more diced onion. Add the taco seasoning, and mix well. I roasted and diced two Hatch chiles, a poblano, and two jalapenos. I removed the skins and seeds. If you want more spice, leave the seeds in. The poblano peppers always add a great smoky flavor, but the jalapenos are where the heat is at. If you can’t find Hatch chiles, use Anaheim instead. They’re both wonderful.
Tip: Scrape the diced onions off of the cutting board with the back side of your knife, so you don’t dull the sharp side.
Add the garlic last, so we don’t burn it. Let it simmer. If the beef dries out, add a little water or broth.
Shannon’s Flour Tortilla Recipe
For this burrito, we’re using Shannon’s flour tortilla recipe. The secret? Bacon grease. We want this tortilla to be thick enough to hold all of this beef and other ingredients. Roll out the tortillas thick and large enough to hold all of this goodness.
Next? Head over to the Mexican Rice recipe! We’ve got to have this rice on this burrito.
Assemble the Ultimate Burrito
Here we go, folks. Lay out the tortilla. Spread out some of the sauce all along the center of the tortilla. Add a layer of beef. Mash the beans up and spread them on the meat. Top with rice, cheese, and fold that tortilla up by folding the ends in and rolling it closed. Dip in some salsa, and enjoy!
