Watch the episode
6 12-inch flour tortillas
Monterey Jack cheese, grated
2 cups long grain rice, cooked until fluffy not wet
600 grams black beans
Luardos Chipotle Chuck Steak (see below)
Fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Guacamole (see below)
Habanero hot sauce (see below)
Tomato salsa (see below)
Iceberg lettuce, shredded
Sour cream

Toast a tortilla in a large frying pan until slightly brown but not crispy (it still needs to be pliable for the wrapping). Add the grated cheese as it’s toasting to get it melting.

One by one add the burrito ingredients, adding as much or as little as you prefer. Wrap up your burrito, and enjoy!
