Are burritos a Mexican or Tex Mex creation? Either way, this shredded pork burrito is sure to satisfy!
This is one burrito recipe that you'll want to make again and again. It's got layers of flavor and texture. The filling includes must-have refried beans, succulent and fork-tender shredded pork in a chile ancho sauce, and creamy avocado. Top it off with a homemade tomatillo salsa verde for a hearty and ridiculously tasty dish.
Are Burritos Real Mexican Food?
We hear this one all the time. Are burritos part of the Tex-Mex recipe book that includes classics like fajitas and nachos, or can they trace their culinary roots back to the homeland? The answer is a bit of both. The whole idea of wrapping up meat, beans, cheese, lettuce and tomato in a flour tortilla is distinctly a north-of-the-border concept. Most burrito recipes we know of follow that mould. But that doesn't mean burritos don't exist in Mexico, especially in border towns like Ciudad Juarez.
What really matters is that they're delicious and versatile. You can make them with chicken, enjoy them for breakfast, or fill them with your choice of proteins, veggies and cheeses.
