This is the best burrito I’ve ever made. Hands down. The beef is so flavourful and it just falls apart it in your mouth. Paired with the crisp coolness of the pico de gallo and the creaminess of the guac.

To steam the tortillas I boiled about 2″ of water in a large pot, then places a splash gaurd on the pot, laid each tortilla on the splash gaurd and covered with the pot lid for a minute each.

For the cheese I had some queso fresco and white cheddar on hand, use what you like.
