Keep this Easy Burrito Bar in mind for the next time you need to feed a big crew! There is something for everyone here — I used chicken for this batch but there is plenty for the vegetarian crew as well. Here's how to make it...
As written, you'll have enough for 20 hungry people, but feel free to cut the recipe in half for smaller groups. I'll go over all the burrito fixings we're making with this loaded countertop of fresh ingredients.
First up is the chicken... I brined and sauteed chicken for this batch. Brining will give you loads of flavor and it takes the pressure off of additional seasoning. I used 5 lbs. boneless breasts and gave them a swim in some saltwater before cooking them.
Cilantro Lime Rice is perfect for burritos -- it's a light, vibrant batch of rice that works well with others. All you're doing is adding some freshly chopped cilantro and lime juice to some cooked white rice. Super tasty!
Next, find someone who is a good chopper and let them loose on the Pico de Gallo! Fresh Pico is awesome in burritos and it’s super easy to make. Use a single jalapeno for a milder version -- or two for a fiery version!
You'll need about 6 tomatoes and 10-12 tomatillos for the awesome Roasted Tomato and Tomatillo Salsa. After roasting the tomatoes and tomatillos you're just blending them with onion, garlic and cilantro. Plus a squeeze of lime :)
You’ll probably recognize the Refried Beans used for these burritos. It’s the same recipe I gush over on a monthly basis :) Saute some onion and garlic, combine them with beans and chipotles, then give it all a whirl in a blender. You’ll end up with the most flavorful batch of beans ever.
The Easy Guacamole is super tasty and requires just a few ingredients: 10 avocados juice of 3-4 limes 2 teaspoons salt (plus more to taste) 1/2 small onion, finely diced and smooshed
Then it’s just a matter of serving up all of this next to burrito-sized flour tortillas and plenty of shredded cheese. Let your friends and family roll their own masterpiece. I’m always amazed how different everyone’s burritos are from each other :)
