Ingredients

  • 4-5 cups Everyday Shredded Pork (see recipe and notes)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 diced onion
  • 1 diced jalapeño (optional, see notes)
  • 2 cups diced or shredded lettuce
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1 mashed avocado
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 8-10 flour tortillas (or as many needed)
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • First you will need 4-5 cups of my recipe for Everyday Shredded Pork. Click here for the recipe.
  • In a medium cast-iron skillet or pan, heat the oil. When hot, add the shredded pork and cook on medium heat. Stir the meat occasionally until the meat starts to crisp up.
  • Add onion and diced jalapeño (if using) and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes, until fragrant. Taste and adjust salt if needed.
  • Heat a comal or a griddle on medium heat. Place a flour tortilla on the comal and flip until warm and soft.
  • Place the tortilla on a plate. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of mayo on the tortilla and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the mashed avocado on top of the mayo.
  • Add 4-5 tablespoons (or as much as you want) of the prepared pork. Top with lettuce, tomato, and season with a sprinkle of salt.
  • Fold your burritohttps://everydaylatina.com/everyday-shredded-pork-instant-pot-and-slow-cooker/. Repeat the process with as many burritos as you wish to make.

Notes

  • My Everyday Shredded Pork is the key in these burritos. To speed up the prep time, you can plan ahead and cook the pork the night before or in the morning. 
  • Kid-Friendly/Non-Spicy Tip: For my kids I add the onion but leave out the jalapeño. I sauté the meat with the onion and then separate a portion for them. Then I add the jalapeño to our portion and finish sautéing.
    • Leave out the jalapeño altogether if you prefer no spice.
