Surf and turf burritos?? Yes, sir!!


This was inspired by my other Tex-Mex burrito recipe on this site and pairs well with this amazing homemade salsa recipe.

A great burrito shows balance and restraint, resulting in harmony between an abundance of flavors, textures, and ingredients. My ideal burrito has an incredible sense of proportion between the meat, rice, beans, cheese, and salsa (mostly meat, a bit less cheese and beans, and enough sauce to help season and flavor every bite). I want a burrito that allows the primary protein to shine like a lead singer, while still leaving room for the other ingredients to assist, like the rhythm section of a rock band.

And that protein should be as delicious on its own as it is in the burrito, which means I’m more likely to favor mesquite-grilled carne asada over gas-grilled or plancha-griddled meat, as it offers the added complexity of smoke and char. Or if the meat is stewed, it should be juicy and tender enough to meld into the other ingredients.

With that in mind, here now are my personal favorite burritos in Los Angeles.

Directions :Surf and turf burritos

Burritos have been a staple of Mexican food and the American diet for many years. What is not to love about a plethora of your favorite flavors mixed

The recipe is easy, and we say exactly how to grill Mexican Carne Asada, Shrimp, and Pico de Gallo.

Sometimes French fries are used to create this burrito, but I feel that it overpowers the beef and shrimp.

 burrito is then topped with Mexican white cheese, Haas avocado, and rolled into a flour tortilla.

 wrapped burrito is then grilled to a golden brown, helping melt the cheese.
This is without a doubt one of the best tasting burrito recipes you will find.
Enjoy !!
