Cilantro Lime Rice + Mango Salsa Beef Burrito

My love affair with the burrito began earlier this year when I had the opportunity to visit the Culinary Institute of America in San Antonio. Embarrassed to say, but that was the first time I had authentic Mexican food. But to my defense, this is only due to the fact that we have a major lack of quality Mexican joints in KW.

However, it wasn’t until my 2 recent trips to Philadelphia that I became obsessed (like I’m going to open a Mexican restaurant just so I can eat these everyday, obsessed) with the burrito.

And what’s not to love about a burrito? I mean, it’s fully customizable, adding all the ingredients in fun, and it can be held in one hand!
