Burritos are the eat-anywhere meal that’s made for busy days when you can’t step away from your desk, or to pack along for a field trip. This classic beef burrito recipe is a sure-fire, feisty hit for parents, kids, and everyone in between. Plus, we’ve included the ingredients to make a refreshing, zippy, homemade Fresca for a perfect lunch break pairing!
How to Pack a Burrito for Lunch
Once you’ve built your buffalo burrito with the recipe below, fold the longest side in, then fold the short sides over it. Roll the sides continuously until the entire filling is covered. Lightly oil a pan over medium heat to quickly pan fry each side, holding the tortilla and filling together. Once off the pan, wrap in foil, cut diagonally, and store in a tall Stasher bag or in a heat-safe container.
How to keep burritos warm for lunch is one of the great mysteries of life. Many folks swear by a double layer of aluminum foil stored next to a hot thermos of water. You can also use reusable foil bags (like the kind pizza deliveries come in) to keep some heat.
Good Sides for Burritos
