Quires un burrito Mexicano?

Jaja, our Spanish is getting a little better daily, but none of us will be an expert in two or three days. Pero creo que podemos ordernar comida mexicana pronto.

We can try to make a burrito though.

This Mexican food is very popular in NYC, worldwide, and food blogs.

You can learn to make a burrito yourself, it's very easy, or you can order a burrito online from Taqueria Los Jarritos.

For an unknown reason most American believe Mexicans invented the burrito you can buy at most fast food chain stores, such as Dos Torros or Chipotle.

You can order burritos on Grubhub, Seamless, UberEats, but those aren't authentic burrito delivery options from a local Mexican restaurant.

Always research the Mexican restaurant, the ingredients the owners uses, and whether there is a local delivery option near you.

Treat yourself to delicious burritos or Mexican tacos .

How to make a burrito?

(づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ (Us Wondering)

The ingredients are simple and easy to put together.

Below is a small list:

  • Meat (Chicken, Carne Asada, etc)

  • Plain white rice, brown rice, or quinoa

  • Corn

  • Black beans

  • Cabbage or lettuce

  • Diced tomato

  • Red onion

  • Cheese

  • Coriander/cilantro

  • Tortilla (aka a flour wrap)

How to cook Carne Asada?

( ˘▽˘)っ♨

First, make a reasonable seasoning to add to the carne asada that you'll fuse into your burrito.

  • In a gallon size resealable bag, combine lime juice, crushed garlic, orange juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, vegetable oil, jalapeno, and vinegar. Squeeze it around to mix it up. You'll put the flank stake in this bag to let it absorb the flavor.

  • Carne asada is made using skirt steak or flank steak. It should only be cooked to rare or medium-rare, otherwise it may become unpleasantly chewy. When cutting your meat, be sure to cut against the grain. It is quite easy to see the grain running through the meat in both of these cuts. It looks like lines.

  • If you don’t have access to an outdoor grill, you can always cook your carne asada indoors on the stovetop.

  • A stovetop will work the same way as a grill. Heat a large heavy skillet (comale) over high heat. Cook the meat for about 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until the desired level of doneness is reached.

Your ideal burrito should resemble the picture on the left.

If it does not, then, we obviously did something wrong in our steps.

You could also always order from our Menu or call us to order a custom made Mexican burrito.
