BARBACOA PULLED PORK BURRITO

Enjoy Mexican street food at home.
Our barbacoa pulled pork burrito is a really simple way to taste authentic Mexican street food in your own home. A great way to feed the family at lunch time or as part of a larger meal. Burritos can have a variety of fillings but usually consist of rice, spiced meat or vegetables, beans, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, but really anything goes. In this recipe, I am using a Mexican Green Rice, but if you’re pushed for time or don’t have the ingredients, plain rice would be fine.

a medium heat. Add the jalapeno mixture, plus the remaining stock.

diced red onion, salt, Habenero Sauce, fresh coriander and lime juice.
