Eight Perfect Recipes For National Burrito Day


By Cooking Panda

In the recent string of important food holidays, National Burrito Day might be our favorite. Nothing fills you up and satisfies your cravings like a nice chunky burrito, and we’re happy to celebrate it on April 7.

If you insist on going out today, check out Rubio’s for a dollar off their Burrito Especial, or Blue Coast Burrito for a buy one get one free deal.

Or even better, make your own at home!

Burritos are pretty easy once you get the hang of rolling them. Simply line your ingredients up on a warm tortilla, leaving a few inches free on the top and bottom. Make sure your ingredients are concentrated together in a strip, favoring one side of the tortilla so you have enough room to roll it. This graphic shows you how:

Now that you know how to roll your own burrito, why not make some at home? Here are eight great recipes:

1. Simple Breakfast Burrito

This is your basic breakfast burrito with sausage, egg, peppers, potatoes, and a couple of little twists to make it taste great.

2. Chorizo, Potato and Queso Burrito

Add eggs and it magically turns into a breakfast burrito.

3. Better than Chipotle Homemade Steak Burrito Bowl

We love those burrito bowls too. How about saving a ton of money and making them yourself?

4.Crispy Black Bean Quinoa Burritos

A healthy-ish vegetarian and easily veganizable way to indulge in something truly delectable when you’re craving a big fat burrito.

5. Slow Cooker Pork Burritos

These super adaptable tender pork burritos are great with just about any fillings, so feel free to go wild.

6. Chipotle Shrimp Burritos with Avocado Crema

This list wouldn’t be complete without some kind of flavor-packed seafood burrito. These are great when you want something on the smaller side. They’d be great for mini burritos!

7. Sushirrito

Is this technically a burrito? If deliciousness is a burrito standard, then we’re just going to go ahead and say yes. We recommend starting with this base and adding on ingredients as you see fit – we love shrimp tempura, eel, sesame seeds and any sashimi-grade fish like tuna or salmon. If you like rice paper, try subbing it out for the seaweed. The sky is the limit!

8. Brick Chicken Avocado Burritos
