Burritos are almost synonymous with Mexican cuisine. Yummy tortillas packed with rice, re-fried beans, salsa, sour cream and cheese, this dish has everything packed into it. It is self-contained in terms of flavour with a bit of tang, spice and cheesiness, and is quite filling too. This makes it a true one-dish meal. We have showed you how to make everything from the guacamole to the salsa yourself. It might look like much but it actually very easy because no cooking is required. You just need to prepare the ingredients and mix them up in the right proportions. Once each component is ready, you have to arrange them into the Burritos. It’s as easy as that! You can also try other Mexican treats like the Mexican Tarts with Refried Beans and Sour Cream and Mexican Salad .
A quick, easy-to-make, healthy starter which is a popular choice in Mexico. The tortillas are baked and made with minimal oil from a blend of more whole wheat flour than maize flour instead of the traditional Mexican tortillas made with maize flour and refined flour which are also deep fried. Whole wheat flour has been used as it abounds in fibre which aids in controlling blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Enjoy these chips with Tomato Salsa and get your taste buds going by enjoying its lively flavours. You can also make a large batch of these at one go and store them in an air-tight container for the contingencies when hunger strikes... unexpectedly. But remember to savour it occasionally in small quantities.
What samosa is to Indians, chimichanga is to Mexican . A popular dish is southwestern American cuisine, Chimichanga is basically deep-fried burritos with a filling of refried beans, topped with sour cream, tomatoes and guacamole. You might need to make a trip to a specialty store to pick up some of these ingredients, but it is definitely worth the effort, because once you have all of it, the chimichangas can be prepared easily and enjoyed comfortably at home.
For all you Mexican food aficionados, the Tortilla is a must-learn item! An inseparable part of Mexican cuisine, Tortillas are traditionally made with maize flour and plain flour. But as these ingredients are high on glycemic index, they must be avoided by diabetics. This Whole Wheat Tortilla is a tasty workaround. We have combined whole wheat flour with a wee bit of maize flour to make super Tortillas, which you can load with your favourite fillings. If you are not comfortable with maize flour, you can avoid that too. Make sure you do not cook the tortillas for too long as they will harden after a while. Once done, store them in an airtight container.

With or without rajma, with one stuffing or the other, burritos are always a great option for a weekend snack as much as for a party – it is quite a meal in itself. You can have a free hand with the stuffing and experiment with choices of your own – just ensure that they are healthy! You must always stuff the burritos as and when required to avoid sogginess; or to add an element of fun and freedom, you can let your guests stuff their own burritos! Cabbage and onions add crunch, while the mozzarella cheese enhances the flavour – every ingredient plays its part in making this a grand success. Usually burritos are not cooked, but you can cook it lightly in the microwave to just melt the cheese a wee bit. And of course, don’t forget to serve with chilled tomato salsa!

The Burrito Bowl sounds elaborate, but the fact is that it is not too time-consuming. Moreover, it is a satiating one-dish meal, which is completely worth the effort. Here, rice is boosted with colourful veggies, ketchup and appropriate seasonings; layered with refried beans, sour cream and uncooked salsa; and finally garnished with cheese and other ingredients; before topping with crushed nacho chips, to make a totally irresistible one dish meal . Refried beans is a staple accompaniment in Mexican cuisine and is readily available at stores, but making it fresh at home with tomatoes, spring onions and cooked rajma, gives an awesome flavour that beats any packaged option! Assemble each serving of the Burrito Bowl separately so that everybody gets an equal share of the goodies, and enjoy it immediately upon preparation.
