Introduction: Beef Burrito

I love burritos, but I'm sick of those kits that you buy in the store, and cook with mince, they're not that good, and I always find the mince too fatty. 
So I scavenged the internet, and came up with this.
This recipe easily fed my 3 house-mates and myself.
Hope you all enjoy.

Step 1: Ingrediants

Beef;
500g Beef (I bought some discount steaks)
1 onion finely chopped
1 clove of garlic (or a tsp of crushed garlic)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika 
400g can of diced tomatoes 
can of kidney beans 
1 capsicum 

Rice,
1 cup rice (I like to use brown)
1 tsp coriander 
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp lime juice 
can of corn
can of black beans

Serve With;
Tortillas
Lettuce
Tomato
Salsa
Avocado
Sour Cream
Cheese
Hot sauce 
Jalapeños 
Etc...

Yes I cheated buying store bought salsa, but i think the rest of the effort makes up for that, and you can substitute your favourite recipe.
Also you can make your avocado into guacamole, I just prefer it plain.



and most importantly some common sense, sharp knives, hot ovens, hot pie.
Don't be a silly goose play it safe, play it smart.

Step 2: Beef Filling

Take your beef and cook it so its just done and still tender. A few of the recipes I found say to slow cook the beef in a crock pot or pressure cooker, I tired this and overcooked my beef and just found it easier to pan fry it.

Put your beef to the side to rest.
Put your diced tomato, kidney beans, capsicum, crushed garlic, cumin, and paprika in the pan and simmer, add extra of the spices if you want, and if you're unlike me ad any chilli you want to make it hot.
I like to mash my kidney beans up a little before adding them, I find it helps make it thicker and less chunky.

While this is simmering shred you beef or cut it up into little chunks and add it back to to the sauce.

Step 3: Rice

Cook your rice till its nearly ready and add corn, black beans, cumin, paprika, coriander, and lime juice.

Done :)

(couldn't find any black beans today)

Step 4: Serve

Serve up with;
lettuce,
tomato,
salsa,
avocado, (I mash mine with a splash of lime juice)
sour cream,
cheese,
jalapeños,
or anything you want.
 

Step 5: Build Your Burrito

Everyone can build their own.

Get creative and enjoy :D
