Expert Tips

  • To roll burritos, fold one edge of tortilla over length of filling, tucking filling in slightly. Then fold two short edges over. Roll filled tortilla over toward remaining unfolded edge.
  • Leftover rice is perfect for this recipe, but packaged frozen cooked rice works well in a pinch.
