This is my “go-to” burrito when I step up to the press. The steak is marinated with Guajillo peppers, which match perfectly with the steak. When used in moderation, the Guajillo pepper supplies an inviting, spicy kick to your steak without taking away from the natural beef flavor. The pepper also supplies a light richness to the flavor as it marinates. Also, I love the texture of the diced onion and tomato in the pico.

For The Burrito:

  • Toss all the vegetable ingredients together in large mixing bowl. Then grill the marinated steak with the vegetables around it while it cooks. Grill the marinated steak to a point where it's still pink in the middle. At this time remove the vegetables as well and set aside. Cut the steak into long strips. Next dice the steak into medium size cubes no smaller than the width of your pinky finger. Place the rice, beans, vegetables, steak, cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream in the center of the tortilla. With a small plastic spatula, thoroughly mix the ingredients together in a folding motion. Bring the mixed ingredients to the center of the tortilla and roll your burrito!
