I always had a love-hate relationship with Buritos. Mainly, because i had them at varied places in Pakistan. I had the first good Burrito from Chipotle in Chicago. I still don’t appreciate the serving size- it is a bit too huge for my liking but oh well, you can complain about a few things.

When a food blogger craves for something, something usually good happens. This was the case, while one day i was watching kid shows (trying my luck for a few minutes of peace with my toddler!) and they were teaching kids how to make Burritos! Later that evening I did my research, gathered all the ingredients and tried my first ever Burritos. The only thing missing ingredient was Sour Cream, which is not available easily in Pakistan. Later we did the make it again with   sour cream and it just makes it complete. I don’t see the reason to add any other sauce to it. Its very rich on its own.

So here is the recipe that worked for me. They are such an easy fix for a weekday night. Especially, if you have boiled rice already in the fridge.



  • Tortilla wraps 4- Get whole wheat wraps
  • Kidney beans 1 Can
  • Chunky Salsa Sauce 1 Cup
  • Iceberg Lettuce 1- shredded  
  • Sour Cream ½ cup
  • Boiled Rice 2 cups
  • Balsamic Vinegar 1 Tbsp
  • Cilantro  ½ cup
  • Preparation time : 15
  • Cooking time : 20
  • Number of servings (yield) : 4


  • Strain kidney beans from the can and run the tap water through
  • In a pan, add the kidney beans and add half of the chunky salsa sauce, Balsamic vinegar, cilantro pinch of salt and toss it and cook it for 2 minutes
  • Take the tortilla wrap, warm them on both sides.
  • Assemble the burritos: Take a tortilla, in the center add the rice at the bottom, top it with kidney beans, chunky salsa sauce, iceberg and top it with a dollop of sour cream.  Fill it up to your hearts content!
  • Wrap the tortillas: first fold from bottom to ensure your ingredients don’t fall as you eat. and then wrap the sides.
