Cali Burrito Ingredients

Cook diced Carne Asada in a hot cast-iron skillet until slightly charred and cooked through.

Slightly char an extra large tortilla over a flame, to soften.

Spread some creamy guacamole and sour cream on the tortilla.

Next, add cooked Carne Asada and hot fries.

Add shredded cheese, Pico de Gallo or salsa, diced onion, and cilantro.

Roll the burrito tightly and microwave for one minute (to melt the cheese). Enjoy!

For a quicker option, use diced sirloin, seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder instead of marinated Carne Asada.
