“Not sure where I got this recipe - first time I had Burros was in a little cafe in Wyoming. Not a burrito, not an enchilada - something in between but oh so good ! The ones we had were fried, I place mine in a warm oven until tortillas are toasted, Watching to make sure they do not burn. You can keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve. There are three ways to serve these, like a toasted sandwich,or topped with the sauce or along with lettuce, avocado,cheddar cheese and salsa. I like all three.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except tortillas in a saucepan and simmer until thickened. I slow cook mine for 60 minutes, shredding the meat as the sauce thickens. You can combine 1/4 cup flour with some of the liquid from the saucepan and add gradually until thickened if you want to speed up the process.
  2. Strain sauce out of the meat mixture and reserve.
  3. Divide some of the meat mixture on the 8 flour tortillas and fold two ends to the middle, same on the other sides.
  4. Keep burros warm in oven, 275 degrees, until ready to serve. Serve lightly toasted but be careful not to burn.
  5. Place two burros on each plate. You can at this point eat them sandwich style or you can, if you desire, pour the reserved sauce over the burros.
  6. Serve this way or along with shredded lettuce, avocado,topped with salsa and cheddar cheese if you desire.
